Better Together

Another half term entertainment, Aca Theatre’s Better Together clown show sounded too much fun to pass up! It was playing at the Canada Water Theatre, which is located inside the library. A beautiful space, especially if you’re waiting for the house to open, as you can just hang out in the reading corner in the…

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre Do Shakespeare

When I heard that the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre were coming to the Camden Fringe, I just had to grab me a ticket! I’ve seen the hilarious socks a few times before and this time they were tackling the great bard. I knew this one was not to be missed. The fantastic footwear duo entertained us in…

Hans: Mein Camp

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I booked tickets to see Hans: Mein Camp anyway, I mean, with a title like that, what could go wrong! After we all filed into the spiegeltent at the Underbelly Festival, I was ready for a campy, colourful show. And boy, did Hans deliver! Hans is the faux-German glitter persona…

Great British Mysteries 

I was given tickets to this and it sounded like fun, so off we went! The Cloak & Dagger Club‘s comedy show is titled Great British Mysteries and is styled as a mockumentary show centred around the supernatural, obviously this was a huge draw for me! The tagline of “Join Olive Bacon (Supernaturalist) and Dr Teddy…

Holy Crap

I love pub theatres! The King’s Head theatre is a decent little example of a perfectly acceptable pub theatre that hosts quirky little shows. One of those shows is Holy Crap, a heavenly new comedy musical. Apart from the name and poster, I had no idea what to expect; anything I could have come up with could never…

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….
