Live at the Apollo

Series 11 - Episode 2



Dara O Briain is a very safe pair of hands for hosting Live at the Apollo, which continues its newly-demoted run on BBC2 this week. Whether it’s the sexiness of men’s elbows, the tragedy that built the Channel Tunnel or a very clever (if rude) way to get men to be completely honest, the Irish comedian holds court with a casual confidence and panache that most of his peers could only dream of.

That said, his guests on tonight’s show more than hold their own, whether it’s the wry deconstructions of Zoe Lyons or the dark and controversial gags of Paul Chowdhry. Forget which channel it’s on – when this series works, it really works.


Mock the Week host Dara O Briain comperes an evening of stand-up at London's Hammersmith Apollo, treating the audience to his own brand of humour, before introducing routines by comedy circuit stars Zoe Lyons and Paul Chowdhry.
