The Tim Vine Chat Show (Bound And Gagged Comedy)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

If you’re planning a whole comedy show based around talking to audience members on stage, you’d better pray you don’t get twits for guests. This is a shame, because Tim Vine was unlucky enough to pick me. Aside from the confirmation that comedy is not the route for yours truly to go down, this really is standard Tim Vine (puns aplenty) but with the twist of every show being different. Watching Vine come up with jokes on the spot illustrates the skill that separates him from many others, and although he does sometime fail to think of a witty response, this is a slick show with plenty of laughs – even with that terrible second guest.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 10, 17), 3.45pm (4.45pm), £11.00 – £13.50, fpp159.
