Wasn't quite sure what to expect - fascinating premise for a show. Some insightful and intriguing questions for the audience, but the 'philosophy' part might be dependent on just who's on the bill that day.

Alex as MC was good, I'd seen his show just the day before. However, the comedians that formed the main part of this show, although funny, didn't seem to understand this was supposed to be a show involving philosophy. I got the impression they simply used this show as a vehicle to trot out their standard comedy sets. Don't get me wrong, they were all pretty good comedians, but I felt they missed the point of what this show was supposed to be about. I suspect the guests change every day, so I hope that on other days the humour was more on-topic.

Just saw this show today, clever witty comedy from all three comedians and the host was brilliant. Not sure if it’s the same comedians every day but I definitely recommend this show.

Solid show. Well worth watching for some intelligent , off-the-cuff, humour.

No I'm not the wildlife presenter! I like comedy that makes you think - and thoughts that make you laugh, or smile, at least! Excellent host and 3 good comics gave us an entertaining hour. Might be worth having some philosophical questions of your own to bring to the party since they were encouraged and sometimes discussed at length!

More than just philosophy, this was astonishingly funny with paradoxes, irony, insight and all that good stuff plus lots of loud laughs. Alex Farrow makes you laugh and feel clever. He will go far :-)
