Comedy fest review: Des Bishop in Made in China

Comedy fest review: Des Bishop in Made in China

He even starred on China’s biggest dating show. Now he’s here to share these hilarious and unique experiences with you.

Comedy fest review: Eli Matthewson in Faith

I don’t laugh at stand-up comedy a whole lot any more. I have performed it a bit. I’ve seen it an awful lot more. I’ve watched it on TV. I’ve reviewed it.

Singin’ in the rain

I was invited to review Singin’ in the Rain and despite my lack of musical theatre knowledge I thought it would be a good chance to get the reviewing muscles warmed up in advance of the Comedy Festival.
