Review

As Alan Carr takes the stage to introduce tonight’s stand-up layer-cake, there’s a problem. He‘s not looking at his best. Not only has he already got sweat patches under his arms (entirely forgiveable) but his flies are undone (less so). Could nobody in the production crew have noticed his costume malfunction before they sent the poor man out on stage in front of an excitable Hammersmith audience and half a dozen TV cameras?

To any other comedian such lèse majesté might be a problem, but not Carr, whose act involves belittling himself at every turn in any case: this is a man so shameless he can make comedy from the sweat under his own man boobs. As he cruises through material on vajazzling, wave machines and driving tests, the shambling self-mockery keeps coming, and keeps working.

The very likeable Andi Osho follows, with some good material on sex and relationships (“I don’t want the sort of man who licks his finger before turning the page on a Kindle”). And Patrick Kielty takes very public revenge on Daybreak’s Adrian Chiles.

Summary

Alan Carr hosts the stand-up show recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, inviting comedians to share their light-hearted views on modern life. He introduces routines by Andi Osho and Patrick Kielty.
