Three To See 2015: Comedy that’s ThreeWeeks approved

By | Published on Thursday 6 August 2015


ThreeWeek Co-Editor Caro Moses with three more comedy tips for you: comedy types who are simply ThreeWeeks approved.

Charlie Baker: Just The One
He’s a definite favourite with our writing team, Charlie Baker. Our reviewers write nice things about him, and all the rest of us go to see him if we get the chance. “His show is absolutely nuts and a complete delight” said our writer in 2013. “Baker serves up comedy gold; pure, undiluted, barmy musical fun not to be missed”. That sounds like a pretty ringing endorsement, doesn’t it?
Assembly George Square Theatre, from 5 until 30 Aug

Michael Legge: Tell It Like It Is, Steve
Michael Legge makes me laugh pretty much every day because I follow him on Twitter and Facebook. And he’s not just a great comedian, he is a generally sound, right-thinking and all-round brilliant person, in my humble opinion, and that’s another reason why you should go and see his show. And it’s not just me that thinks he’s worth your time. “Legge is vitriolic, but gloriously funny” said our reviewer back in 2013, “he deserves a resounding recommendation”. So here is one.
The Stand Comedy Club 2, from 6 until 30 Aug

Abigoliah Schamaun: Post-Coital Confessions (pictured)
This sounds like it will be a typically Abigoliah-style show, a frank, honest and funny dissection of a topic that’s on the taboo-ish side: what’s the weirdest thing anyone’s ever said to you, post-coitus? Schamaun has never received less than four stars from assorted ThreeWeeks writers, and been praised for her no-holds barred, hilarious, fearless approach. Don’t miss this show. Unless you are a bit squeamish about this kind of stuff, obviously.
Gilded Balloon, from 5 until 31 Aug
