ED2012 Comedy Review: Aaaaaaaaargh! It’s The Monster Stand-Up Show- Free (Monster Comedy)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Closing the show, loveable compère Harriet Dyer put it best by saying “there is something here for everyone”. The stand-up variety show features four new comics each night, with yesterday’s line-up including Scott Adams, Aaron Twitcher, Jay Handley and Masai Graham. Admittedly some of the comedians were mediocre and the air in the room turned a tad awkward as the ‘dark’ line was overstepped, but luckily the delightful compère made up for this. It was refreshing to see such a vibrant young woman host an all-male stand up-show; Dyer made the audience feel at home and managed to wow the crowd by playing ‘guess the song’ with her ‘Finding Nemo’ whale impression.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, 3-26 Aug, 8.45pm.
