This pick and mix includes impish Isy Suttie, Helen Keen with more bittersweet home truths, Radio 4 favourite Robin Ince doing his loudest Brian Blessed impression, a couple of non-sequiturs from Paul Foot, a surreal Viking-themed set from Canadian Tony Law and a deliciously sour diatribe about Mrs Brown’s Boys from perennial grouch Michael Legge.

Backstage Ince and Keen briefly discuss the serious business of comedy in compere Stewart Lee’s leopard-print lair. Even if it’s not all to your taste it’s worth sticking around for the coda: a blue song involving a bike from former Perrier winner David O’Doherty.


Stewart Lee introduces alternative stand-up performances, including Robin Ince, David O'Doherty, Josie Long, Isy Suttie, Helen Keen and Michael Legge.
