Review

Posh young beardy Jack Whitehall marshals this edition of the series, an effective mix of styles with the mucky stuff turned down a tad.

It’s been a memorable year for Whitehall — gigs on stateside TV, regular panel-show turns back home, his acting debut in the acclaimed campus-com Fresh Meat. And although his set tonight is textbook fare — grumpy Brits, relationship problems, Ibiza — he still hits lots of buttons.

On paper, Josh Widdicombe is similarly cautious with his material (dining out alone, computers), but scores solid laughs. Nice little pop at Argos Extra, too: “They’ve used the rare definition of extra to mean far far less.”

Finally the edgier Shappi Khorsandi puts fresh spins on single parenthood and online dating, and shows her mastery of the unexpected punchline.

Summary

Jack Whitehall guest-hosts the stand-up show recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, inviting comedians to share their light-hearted views on modern life. Tonight he introduces routines by Josh Widdicombe and Shappi Khorsandi.
