A Comedy About A Bank Robbery

After having seen The Play That Goes Wrong a while back and having hugely enjoyed it, I really wanted to see The Comedy About A Bank Robbery by the same production company, Mischief Theatre. It is currently playing at the Criterion in Piccadilly Circus. The play is a convoluted story about a prison escapee planning a bank robbery, with many mishaps and…

The MMORPG Show

If you’ve never been to see the MMORPG show, you might want to read my previous review of the same, but different as it’s improv, show; the first review does go a little more in depth as to what this us all about. Once again we headed to the Bill Murray pub, where the Angel Comedy Club…

Trumpageddon

Simon Jay’s one-man-show Trumpageddon sounded too good to pass up, so on a Sunday afternoon I wandered up to Angel and promptly stumbled over the curb and landed flat on my face. Or rather my knees, to be more exact. Great start to the evening, I thought. Ruined my leggings and scraped both my knees open. Brilliant….

The MMORPG Show

The MMORPG Show has snapped up a six month residency at the Angel comendy Club and of course we had to make our way there to witness yet another quest! To preface this, I have seen this show before, several times, and I absolutely love it. It’s different every time as it’s mostly improvised around a set structure, so…

Improvised Science Fiction

This show sounded great as described in the Vault Festival program, so I had to give it a go. A Sci-Fi improv show, two of my favourite things all in one! The show started with the three actors asking for suggestions for tonight’s theme; from several shout-out options provided by the audience, Stargate was selected. The three immediately sprung…

Decide-A-Quest

Another show at the Vault Festival, the Decide-A-Quest show! In the vein of choose-your-own-adventure books, this show draws a lot from nostalgia and silliness. Which are both things I’ll happily go with! Of course, me being the loudmouth I am, I was chosen to be Limpy The Virgin Finger Monk, which meant I was outfitted with a large…

Happily Never After

I absolutely love the Vaults Festival, a beautiful fringe theatre festival with an eclectic selection of shows. One show that was recommended to me was Happily Never After, an improvised gothic musical. I’m always one to enjoy a good improv show, musicals are fantastic, and this one is inspired by Tim Burton’s work, so it sounded amazing….

Running Mate

The Iris Theatre at St Paul’s church in Covent Garden put on a political musical called Running Mate. In these times of political turmoil and deceit, this was just what I needed. The location is always a great one as well, the old actor’s church is definitely worth a visit and shows here benefit from the beautiful church…

The Adventures Of Dick

I am not very familiar with the whole panto culture, so decided to give the filthiest panto in town a shot. I’m generally not a fan of mindless comedy and stereotypical tropes, so I was skeptical. The story of Dick takes place in Soho-ho and pits the heroes against the evil queen who wants to…

The Shakespeare Revue

I found out about the Shakespeare Reviee through the posters at Richmond Theatre when I visited for another theatre production. I was intrigued and got myself and a gew friends some tickets. The show is based on the original Royal Shakespeare Society production and is an absolute riot! From the first skit to the last song, this show…

Spymonkey – The Complete Deaths

This one was one hell of a ride! But more on that later… We arrived at the Shoreditch Town Hall, which is a grand old building that looms over the pavement. This vestry hall turned arts and entertainment space is really something! You can still tell the original purpose it was built for but it…

Penny Arcade – Longing Lasts Longer

Last night I had the chance to see Penny Arcade’s Longing Lasts Longer at the Soho Theatre. I didn’t know much about the show, apart from a short blurb describing the artist as an American whirlwind comedian with a controversial set, so off I went to find out for myself. And boy, was I in…
