Pointless Anger, Righteous Ire 2: Back In The Habit (Robin Ince and Michael Legge / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

“The Daily Express is akin to someone squatting in a cellar fearing something foreign is coming,” is a quip you may or may not hear from comedians Ince and Legge in their comedy show. The reason for the “may or may not” is due to the mad lack of structure in the show, where each comedian discusses his – and the audience’s – pet hates, then gets them to vote on whether the quibble is “pointless” or “righteous”. Much of the comedy stems from throwaway comments that build into what could be a whole show on its own. Give or take the very occasional weak gag, this show is a definite stand out from normal stand-up.

The Stand Comedy Club V, 4 – 28 Aug (not 15), times vary, £7.00 – £8.00, fpp136.
