Review


Let’s face it – watching stand-up comedy on TV will never be as gut-bustingly funny as it is live and in person, surrounded by a crowd at a packed venue.

But over the past 14 series the stand-up roll call has made up for this inevitable drawback by showcasing some of the best up-and-coming comedians and club veterans in the country, introducing them to a wider audience and often spurring them on to bigger and better things.

In this opening episode to series 15 Rosie Jones and Kae Kurd will be hoping to follow in those footsteps, while Tom Allen takes the lead with a routine taking shots at social media and the scourge of “mindfulness”.
