Bob Slayer’s Marmite Gameshow – Free (Dress Code Drunk And Naked / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

At least half of what the company’s name appeared to promise was fulfilled, as Bob Slayer necked back pint after pint of Jagerbomb, leading to such hilarious impromptu audience interactions as “shout out what part of the story the comedian was up to before he got distracted”. Pervading the show is a sense that whatever enters Slayer’s head at that moment becomes the show, thereby promising a new experience each time. At the time I saw him, Slayer was in the middle of so-called “Cockgate”, where he found himself in trouble with the council for encouraging audiences to stick phallic stickers on other comedians’ posters. Despite this seemingly unscripted calamity, there was still plenty of lunacy to keep the audience entertained.

Laughing Horse at The Hive, 4 – 28 Aug (not 23), times vary, free, fpp51.
