The Kingsley And I (Various Special Guests And MCs Daily)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Paul McCaffery didn’t seem to know what was going on: “We’re all going to go home nonplussed,” he says, and by the end of the evening, such a prediction was completely right. This is not a reflection on the considerable talents of either him or Damien Kingsley, whose anecdotal humour stands strong. A Gordon Ramsay impression – “Get Me That Crème Fucking Fraiche (Pardon My French)” – is a particular highlight. However, the bizarre composition of audience members, who quickly became the show’s focus and enhanced an already-engaging evening of comedy, makes it hard to know how this show would have panned out without an audience as fantastically diverse as that on offer last night.

Laughing Horse at Espionage, 4 – 28 Aug, 10.00pm (11.00pm), free, fpp105.
