Aye, ok. Let’s send the reviewer that wish-listed Marks Thomas and Steel to see a self-confessed Tory-voting comic. Sorry to say (no, really), I pretty much didn’t hate him. Norcott is acutely aware of the depths of the furrow in which he is working, mitigating this with reason and self-deprecation: “I’m a cunt with a small ‘c'”. You can disagree (again: no, really) with the stuff about monetising the NHS, rejecting the 50% tax rate and euthanising the elderly (that was all in the manifesto, right?) but the main question for a comedy review is – was it funny? And, you know what? Mostly, yeah. The less political stuff wasn’t as interesting but, overall, a sharp, funny Tory. Urk. I’m off for a lie down.

Just The Tonic at the Tron, until 29 Aug.
