Host Sean Lock emerges from the clouds of dry ice looking as dapper as always, before launching into a routine about the risks, as a middle-aged man, of ever mentioning that you quite like something. Particularly around this time of year, he points out, expressing a passing interest in anything – a ferry, a bird – can result in ill-advised “experience” presents come Christmas Day.
Lock’s longer routines are always good (there’s a great one on the discrimination you suffer as a binge drinker), but his quick hits are good, too, including a dark, throwaway one-liner about hearing voices.
Following the host, Asian comic Romesh Ranganathan talks about how, because he has mixed-race kids, he and his wife try to get the kids to pick a side. Then Marcus Brigstocke explains the euro crisis by means of a nightclub allegory and some passable beatboxing. It’s as plausible as anything on
Eight Out of 10 Cats star Sean Lock hosts an evening of stand-up at the Apollo in Hammersmith, London, treating the audience to his own brand of humour before introducing routines by grumpy stand-up Romesh Ranganathan and actor and funnyman Marcus Brigstocke.
