Episode 7: Live at the Apollo: Christmas Special

Summary

Sara Pascoe introduces a special festive edition of the comedy show recorded before a packed house at London's Hammersmith Apollo, warming up the audience and then introducing routines by Chris McCausland and musical comedy double act Flo & Joan.

Review

Turn your ha-ha-has into ho-ho-hos for this festive edition of the stand-up special, slightly awkwardly dubbed “Noël at the Apollo”. This week, pudding on their best act and hoping to sleigh the audience are three acts, beginning with host Sara Pascoe, who delivers a characteristically assured performance while dressed to the nines in her Christmas finery.

Chris McCausland, recently seen on Would I Lie to You?, follows her with a brilliantly dark set that riffs on his own blindness and whether his friends really took him to see Guns N’ Roses, before comedy instrumental duo Flo & Joan end the episode on a musical high. A real Christmas cracker – and with funnier jokes to boot.
