Aww - this was fantastic! This whole show is improvised on the spot, inspired by audience suggestions. MC Hammersmith engages the audience throughout, mixing up both the style of how he elicits suggestions and the way he presents his raps. It's charming, captivating, and straight up brilliant.

Not only is he a genius when it comes to rhyming and freestyle rapping, MC Hammersmith is also so darned smart. He has such broad knowledge about different topics, and he integrates this quirky intel into his raps. The depth of the references is delightful! The show is so incredibly interactive and clever. And wow - what a memory! So many callbacks - including the impressive segment at the end where he summarizing the whole improvised hour in a matter of minutes.

Every show is different. I would happily see this show again and again!

Hilarious! Saw the poster and knew I HAD to check this out - although didn't really know what to expect as I've never seen anything like this before. HILARIOUS! My husband ended up on stage which was even funnier. We got in with the free tickets as all tickets already sold out and they save spaces on the day which is a great idea. But was more than happy to pay at the end as this show deserved that!! Fab venue too. MC Hammersmith I can't wait to see you again and I'm looking forward to the album!

To say that this guy is exceptionally clever and phenomenally entertaining is doing him an absolute disservice. So Muthaf##kin funny!
The show was awesome from start to finish.
If you want to see someone that looks like they work for Inland Revenue, rap like a man possessed about a myriad of topics, whilst making you laugh so much your stomach hurts, this is the show for you.
Warning, empty your bladder first as you are in grave danger of peeing yourself!

Absolutely incredible. How he does it is beyond me. Will see him every year from now on and be on the lookout for his tour!

We genuinely do not know how this man does the things in this show. Truly immersive and improvisatory, MC Hammersmith put his trust in three men to cartwheel him on stage, rapping the entire time. I cannot stress this enough, HE CAN EVEN RHYME ORANGE (sorry)

MC Hammersmith’s show is a riotously entertaining – if self-consciously very uncool – set.
