Live at the Apollo

Series 8 - 6. Greg Davies, Hal Cruttenden and Simon Evans

Host Greg Davies roams the Apollo like an angry giraffe, railing against the perils of being middle-aged, which include having an underpants emergency just before he was due to go on stage. There’s a long, discursive rant about a hideous taxi journey with a cab driver, which involved an existential discussion about the nature of “pies”, before things get quieter with charming guest Hal Cruttenden. He has a good riff about the similarities between Germany and Dr David Banner in The Incredible Hulk. The evening ends with Simon Evans, who makes jokes about hen parties and fat people.
