Dr Ettrick-Hogg Presents Manly Stand-Ups (Dr Ettrick-Hogg and Wudwud / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

I left this venue in a rage, deep in mourning for the hour of my life that I would never get back. There was not one good routine, or even one decent joke from the four comedians who made up the ‘Manly Stand Ups’. From the first comedian – who continually drew attention to the poor response he was getting – to the last, whose succession of woeful puns simply induced painful groaning, barely a titter was raised from the audience. Only go to this show if you find the words “penis” and “anal hair” endlessly funny as they are constantly repeated and leaned on by the comics like unstable crutches. You may not pay money, but you pay in time and brain cells.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 5 – 12 Aug (not 7), 4.30pm (5.30pm), free, fpp68.
