Reviews of showcase gigs are of dubious value, as the line up may not be the same when you go, but Sian makes a great compère and a gifted comic. The two supports when I went were both good and funny and all three were very different in style. As good as some of the 'top' comics I've seen this Fringe. Well worth seeing.

As an aside, it was interesting how flat one ill-judged gag fell, about a guy having to share a flat with his ex-partner and her new love — the 'paraprosdokian' twist being that said new love is female. It's a good sign of the times that instead of being surprised, the audience mainly tutted (as good middle class folk do).

As a working/lower middle class, E Midland lad who does a fair impression of an arty-farty bourgeois, this was a good selection without thumping too many tubs. No major chips (or couscous, as Sian put it for the benefit of posher punters — surely that should be quinoa anyway?) on shoulders (ee, mine were catered by Harry Ramsdens)

Really enjoyed this show. Well done to Sian for organising a working class comedians platform. I would definitely go and see some of their individual stand up.
