Compere Paul B Edwards (pictured) was an energetic host for an hour of high-quality standup. Danny Ward kicked off and warmed the room up nicely – his National Express story rather tickled me. Alex Edelman’s material overlapped a little with when we saw him at Richard Herrings podcast, but he did some different stuff too – also very funny. Christian Schulte-Loh may not be welcome in Israel after an unfortunate misunderstanding concerning the Holocaust, but he’s welcome here any time. Matt Price finished the show, quickly turning a slightly strange audience interaction into a near hostage situation! His prepared material was funny, and his banter even better.
If this is the standard of show Paul is putting together, I’ll be back next year!
We went along to this compilation show because we had a free hour and it was nearby, and it was excellent! Four really good acts and we laughed and laughed throughout. It was nice to see Alex Edelman again and his material varied to a certain extent from his set at Richard Herring’s Edinburgh Fringe Podcast, so that was a bonus. Matt Price entertained us with some high quality spontaneous audience participation. Very good.
