Lest there be any confusion, London Hughes is quick to clarify that her show title isn’t some elaborate theatrical metaphor, but simply reflecting a show that’s sweaty with sex....

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 94 days ago

Beyoncé’s Diva is blasting out as we wait for London Hughes to arrive. After a short while she makes a very London-esque entrance, bouncing into the tiny attic room at Pleasance Courtyard and filling it with her electric energy. The kind of energy you’d need to fill a venue 10...

Chortle (4/5 stars) 99 days ago

No prizes for guessing what this is about - and no, it’s not duck shooting. The Fringe guide’s censorious caution notwithstanding, this delivers what it promises: a fully raucous hour of frank and funny tales from a battle-hardened veteran of the dating scene. ...

Broadway World (5/5 stars) 99 days ago

The human equivalent of three shots of tequila bursts into the room on a rainy Edinburgh night announcing "I'M MOIST! THIS WEATHER IS F***ING BIBLICAL!". London Hughes has arrived. Hughes's energy makes this hour of comedy pass in the blink of an eye, with potentially a few cases of Extreme...

Deadline News (4/5 stars) 100 days ago

If you’re particularly sensitive about anything of a sexual nature, maybe this show isn’t for you, but if you’re after an hour of brutal honesty and absolute hilarity then you can catch up with her at the Pleasance Courtyard for the rest of the Fringe.

While her overtly raunchy sense of humour may be considered too brash and bold for some, those looking for an hour of pure hilarity and unsexy sexuality will find their perfect match in London Hughes

Anyone seeing her on TV or listening to her radio will only be getting a watered down version of this dynamic, confident and audacious lady. You must see her live to get the full impact of this force of nature. If we had more room in the tiny venue, there would certainly have been a standing ovation.

The Guardian (4/5 stars) 100 days ago

You might call London Hughes a force of nature – except you’d hesitate to credit that megawatt energy to anyone but herself. It’s part of the joke that she is a rampaging ego, with the personality to fill the Pleasance Attic several times over. So why oh why is she...

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 100 days ago

The English comic bursts into the Attic room of the Pleasance Courtyard announcing: ‘I’m London Hughes and I’m really funny.’ The hubris is tongue-in-cheek. But she’s damn right. Her confidence is affirmed when some latecomers arrive soon after. Instead of the usual ‘come in, welcome, take a seat etc.’ patter,...

The Times [paywall] (3/5 stars) 101 days ago

A reliably lively panel-show presence, London Hughes here fills a tiny attic Fringe room with the sort of force-of-nature pizzazz that could conquer the Colosseum. “APPARENTLY I’M TOO MUCH, GUYS!” she booms with knowing overkill, before spending her second Fringe hour banging on about . . . well, banging. Yes,...

When people ask me what I thought of London Hughes’ show “To Catch a D*ck”, the short answer I tell them is that I enjoyed it so much that I immediately went to the box office and booked another ticket for myself for the next day. The long answer: I’ll...

Fest (4/5 stars) 105 days ago

London Hughes is hitting her 30s, and getting pressured by her family to find a man and settle down. She’s reluctant. As a riposte this show recounts her sexual history, in all its bawdy glory. Filthy, frank and consistently hilarious, it’s an hour that transcends what in lesser hands would...
