Paul Ricketts’ West End Story (Comedy Verity)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

If there is one lesson to be learned from Paul Ricketts’ show it’s this: treat every day as if it’s your birthday. You could wind up at a flamenco party, or simply get a free drink. In ‘West End Story’, Ricketts ponders the life of a comedian, discusses pornography and talks about the type of person you usually encounter in London, and the ones you usually don’t… unless you take his advice and remain open to possibility, seize every opportunity and keep on pretending it’s your special day. Ricketts is a wonderful impersonator, easily creating vivid pictures and making the stories come to life in front of you. This is storytelling comedy with real heart; go hear his story.

Just The Tonic @ The Mash House, until 24 Aug.
