Al Murray’s Compete For The Meat (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Al Murray has a few die-hard regulars in his audience, but even they are completely bemused by the opening video showing his reaction to the London riots. The next hour and a half is spent between general knowledge, half-baked singalongs and Murray shouting “It’s Chriiiistmaaaas!” in order to excuse anything. The Pub Landlord humour of systematically insulting his audience is still a crowd-pleaser, but the pub-quiz format and limited seating means not all of us are really involved, so it’s worth getting in early if you do want to compete for the meat. Maybe the late-night show will be merrier, but in the middle of the day in rainy August, Christmas cheer is really lacking.

Assembly George Square, 12 – 27 Aug, 4.00pm (5.30pm), £15.00, fpp37.
