Review

A lightly sparkling edition of the stand-up showcase, although without too much disrespect to the comics on the bill, a Christmas Apollo doesn’t mean a host of bigger names. Josh Widdicombe, after a year of ubiquity that’s included sitcom and topical comedy as well as stage work, gets a very warm welcome for a decent observational routine about going home for Christmas to a single bed. Before him are the ribald Tanyalee Davis and Hal Cruttenden, who’s always a little edgier than his camp, cuddly persona suggests.

The host is ventriloquist Nina Conti, doing her now-familiar improvisation using audience members as dummies.

Summary

Nina Conti hosts a special festive edition of the stand-up comedy show. Featuring performances by Canadian comic Tanyalee Davis, Royal Variety Show regular Hal Cruttenden and The Last Leg star Josh Widdicombe on the famous stage of the Hammersmith Apollo.
