Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Do the names Chris Ramsey and Doc Brown ring only the faintest of bells? Then allow me to place tonight’s stand-ups for you (alongside compere Jason Manford). Ramsey you’ll recognise from his role in BBC2 sitcom Hebburn, where he played aspiring journalist Jack. Doc Brown is an actor, too, and played Bradley Walsh’s oppo in Law and Order: UK. (He’s also the brother of novelist Zadie Smith.) That’s a lot of background info because, to be honest, there are no terribly quotable gags in their routines, but Brown’s comedy rap to finish the show is worth seeing.
