Review

In a rare, filth-free, you-can-watch-it-with-your-granny episode (and so much better for it), laconic US comic Rich Hall immediately gets the Apollo audience on his side as he points out that British people are so much funnier than his countryfolk. Then a very game audience member called Peter comes on stage as Hall’s “human shield” to sing a creditable version of John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads.

Good-natured and funny Mark Watson regales us with the perils of shopping for a single carrot, and Andrew Maxwell ends the show with a clever routine about a “cockney mosque” with a “geezer minaret”.

Summary

Rich Hall hosts the stand-up show recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, doing his own thing before introducing routines by Mark Watson and Andrew Maxwell.
