by Natalie O'Donoghue - August 9, 2014

This charismatic comic performs in major comedy clubs across the UK and internationally where she is in as much demand for her compere abilities as she is for her comedy routine. Her natural stage presence alongside her healthy neglect attitude to children and life in general proves extremely popular amongst many and varied audiences including the armed forces where she remains as one of the few women to go to military bases to entertain the troops.

by Kevin Sherwin - August 5, 2014

I'll admit it: I'm a fan of a theatrical gimmick. Generally speaking, a production that has a bit of a high-concept twist that can be summed up in ten words or less is in with a good shot at a positive review from me. And so, White Rabbit Red Rabbit, with its pitch of 'actor opens envelope and performs play without ever reading it' was already off to a good start. (more...)

by Kevin Sherwin - August 5, 2014

It gives me no pleasure whatsoever to write this but if you ask me, Theatre Ad Infinitum have dropped the ball. Their annual must-see status in the Pleasance Dome is completely justified, which makes it all the more baffling that their 2014 production is as leaden and, well, shonky as it is. (more...)

Is it annoying if I? If my sentences never seem to? And for an hour, could you? Welcome to Show 6, a play in which no single sentence is allowed enough words for it to make sense, but which seems convinced of its importance, for one reason or another. (more...)

by Natalie O'Donoghue - August 5, 2014

Award-winning comedian Vikki Stone has blagged, stolen and borrowed twenty musical instruments. Some she can play really quite well and others, at the time of writing, not so well. This collection of instruments, each with a story, will become the underscore for this tale of love, loss and music. (more...)

by Natalie O'Donoghue - August 5, 2014

Good afternoon! I am a character comedian doing a comedy show. I have been in BBC Radio 4's 2525 and Mission Improbable, and on BBC1's Not Going Out, plus an advert for car rental. Some people have written nice things about me but why not come and see for yourself? (more...)
