The Good, The Bad And The Cuddlier ‘Ride Again’ VI (Sion James And Jonny Williams/ Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 30 August 2011

The comedians of this show must have made a pact with the Almighty himself, as the only reason I can see why anybody stayed by the end was the abhorrent torrential rain pounding down on the streets outside; even then I felt like paying tribute to Gene Kelly by shouting, “I’ll take my chances with the rain!” and throwing myself down the fire escape to dance around some lampposts. Featuring a compère with no jokes, a slightly funnier comedian from Newcastle, and finishing with a man who brought the crowd around only by mentioning his autistic child, you’d be better to make like Clint Eastwood and go and see something ‘For A Few Dollars More’.

Laughing Horse at Meadow Bar, 13 – 24 Aug, 5.15pm (6.15pm), free, fpp84.
