A theme runs through the stand-up tonight. All three comics riff on the way people overreact to trivial things. For excellent Kerry Godliman, that means women who think they’ve lost their purse; for host Rhod Gilbert it’s an altercation with the “travelling chef” in a train’s buffet car about an egg and cress sandwich. Final act Jon Richardson serves up lovely micro-observations of his slobby housemates and their washing up: “You’re doing a baking tray when there’s still wine glasses!” he wails, and we feel his pain.

About this programme
