I have to admit that I frequently find
Live at the Apollo
a bit of a trial because it’s just so mucky. Take this episode's piercingly offensive graphic routine by Jason Byrne about sex with his wife. It involves imagined maracas and a tuba. And host Mickey Flanagan’s throwaway gag to a The Only Way Is Essex “cast member” in the audience about glueing glitter on a certain part of the male anatomy. See? Mucky.
But Flanagan has some good routines about the perils of being nice to your neighbours and a Seinfeld-esque look at the petty embarrassments of saying “hello” more than once to acquaintances.
The cheery, mop-headed Seann Walsh is fun with a routine aimed squarely at his London audience centred on Tube-travel etiquette. He hurls himself into a superb impression of a strap-hanging commuter falling asleep while standing up. Not mucky at all. See, it can be done.
Micky Flanagan hosts the stand-up show recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, introducing routines by Jason Byrne and Seann Walsh, with all three sharing their comical observations on life.
