Oh boy – this was fun…

Host Will Mars explained the format. We will see 4 acts. A member of the audience nominates a pairing and each pair of acts will come back on stage to repeat the set of the person that they have been paired with.

We had the pleasure of Laura Lexx @lauralexx, Paul Taylor @paul_f_taylor, Andrea Hubert @ShutUpAndrea, and Nick Page @NickPageUK1.

Of course the audience member thought pairing up the biggest chap, Nick, with tiny Laura would lead to some fun. Of course it would as Laura energetically bounced around the stage comparing sporting opportunities for the 2 sexes: football and netball. In the other pairing Paul tried to make it hard for Andrea by including lots of sound effects in the set. Whilst each of the first sets was brilliantly funny, another barrel of laughs was to come when the partner in each tried to replicate the set. Some got political whilst Laura got a chair to stand on.

This was a really rapid show – 9 sets (if you include the host) in an hour and hence no chance of getting bored. They all got into the spirit of the show and it was a superb treat – no wonder the room was packed.

Different people appear each night which are announced on Twitter https://twitter.com/JokeThieves – so it is literally a different show each night. Click Here
