The recession is preying on the minds of tonight’s stand-up comedians. Sara Pascoe has a solution to credit card debt: make chip and pin machines talk like disapproving parents (“But you’ve already got a coat!”). Host Kevin Bridges is on flying form, dissecting the financial crisis: “Europe’s skint, America’s skint,” he notes sadly. “I hope Africa have got some good rock bands, because we need a concert.”

But the surprise of the show is Phill Jupitus, who comes on with the moody confidence of a man with nothing to prove. He doesn’t bother with gags; he just does one long, taboo-torturing routine about dealing with his daughter’s boyfriend. It’s like a whole sitcom boiled down to one routine, and it’s brilliant.


Kevin Bridges hosts the stand-up show from the Hammersmith Apollo in London, warming up the audience before introducing routines by DJ, Buzzcocks regular and all-round funnyman Phill Jupitus and actress-comedienne Sara Pascoe, making her Apollo debut.
