Featuring a different set list every day, this show gives six acts a short solo slot each then brings them together in a quick-fire game round. Given this format, what you get is largely down to luck, andI must have been having an unlucky day because what I got was a series of stand-up routines that were for the most part unoriginal and flat. What troubled more than one of the performers was that their material was not exciting to start off with, or did not come together well, or both. That said, there were redeeming moments from two comedians new to the game, Tom Tumilty and Scott Jeffery, who provided glimmers of promise in an otherwise murky show.
