Saw this with Fiona and one of her connected friends at Leicester Square Theatre. Apparently it’s a favourite haunt of comedians for trying out newer material.
Could not believe how funny this was in person! Very easy and kind crowd but every other line had me giggling with glee.
The Simpsons and Futurama have a high density of comic material, in their best episodes. The opening movement of this was even beyond that.
It slowed down at times but his clever silliness and inimitable mannerisms soon got things going again. There is a musical finale at the end of the show, although I shaln’t spoil its exact nature for you.
