I had a great time at this show. The comedians were quick on their feet and I really enjoyed how they were engaging with the audience from the jump. Each did some personal material... the woman reminded me of Bill Hicks and talked about personal topics in a way I really appreciated. The man was also very charming and funny. They had a guest comic which was unexpected and maybe they could have done without but was a good surprise. Overall, I laughed for a full hour and that's all I really expect out of a comedy show. I had no problem with them asking for a suggested donation at the end I have been to a few free fringe shows and that seems to be the norm and the show was definitely worth paying for.

First of all, this show has nothing to do with the TV show, so if you're interested in that, you'll be disappointed.
It was only day 2 but the show appeared to be filler material along the comedians' solo shows and they spent the first half of it asking the audience questions about whether they were married and how long etc. I visited the show with my friend (also a woman) and they conveniently skipped over us so very heteronormative (eventually got round to us assuming we were single).

Then followed three short solo performances which seemed to centre on trying to shock the audience rather than good quality jokes. They mistook my lack of appreciation for utter horror, but I simply thought it was a cheap way of getting laughs. Also, they're supposed controversial remarks were actually a bit tame. If you'd like GOOD jokes about slightly controversial topics such as pegging, go to Dizney in Drag instead!
They ended by advising us how much we should donate, which I also thought was a bit rude.
