Josh Widdicombe is probably best known as a solid part of ensemble comedy panel shows like Mock the Week and The Last Leg, so this is a welcome reminder that his real strengths lie in stand-up.

Sure, the topics his observational style alights on aren’t the most original – tonight’s musings include pretentious real ale drinkers and aeroplane turbulence – but they’re delivered with such a skilful sense of incredulity by Widdicombe that they seem fresh.

Later, he’s joined by Nathan Caton and Celia Pacquola, who bring their own brand of funny to the stage.


Sitcom star and The Last Leg regular Josh Widdicombe plays host in this show recorded before a packed house at London's Hammersmith Apollo. He'll be warming up the audience and then introducing routines by Londoner Nathan Caton and Celia Pacquola from Australia.
