The Footlights Present… (The Footlights)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2011

Stuffed like a kalamata olive into the basement of an Italian restaurant, I found myself at yet another free comedy show, and suffice it to say, I was not looking forward to the following hour. However, ‘The Footlights Present…’ was an hour of comedy that I would not trade for anything. A procession of five hilarious comedic acts, (some of which were musical comedy, some of which was stand-up), this show really delivered on the laughs, thanks in large part to the phenomenal host, Pierre Novellie, and the brilliant final act, singer/songwriter/rapper Emerald Paston. For a free show, this comedy is spot on, delivering lots of laughs despite the minimal air supply in the venue.

Comedy Ciao Roma – Downstairs, 5 – 28 Aug, 3.20pm (4.20pm), free, fpp78.
