Aaaaargh! It’s The Monster Stand-Up Show (Masai Graham)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Since you’ll leave wanting to be friends with the comedians on show, the venue is perfect – it’s small enough to ensure that you’ll bump in to at least one afterwards. Compèred by Alan Twitchen, proceedings start with a warm and energetic welcome, having even the most hungover of punters spluttering into their pints. It may be on at 3pm, but that doesn’t stop the acts delivering stand-up to make the teeth clench and send the eye darting awkwardly round the room, to check if everyone else laughing along with you. Glenn Moore is particularly hilarious, and his well-spoken and charming presence have the room buzzing. A definite must-see introduction to some of the understated comedy available at the Festival.

Laughing Horse @ Jekyll & Hyde, until 25 Aug, 3.00pm.
