James Acaster: COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 (Work in Progress)
Calling shows a ‘Work in Progress’ is for wimps. When is a show not in progress anyway? Is a show ever truly ‘done’? Sure, this show is a lot closer to its conception than its conclusion but am I going to fall back on calling it a ‘work in progress’??? Absolutely not. Is it far from finished and shonky as hell? Sure. Will it be worth the ticket price? Comedy is subjective.
Nathaniel Metcalfe: Chameleon, Comedian, Corinthian and Caricature (Work in Progress)
Mildly anticipated new show from the 'delightfully silly' (Time Out), Josh Widdicombe’s XFM Show regular, who has also been heard on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Directed by James Acaster. 'Impressive' (Scotsman). 'The potential is excitingly evident' (Metro). 'There’s a touch of the Stewart Lee about his delivery... but it’s Lee on ecstasy. A friendly, jovial enthusiastic fellow' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Storytelling at its finest... His Sugar Puffs/Honey Monster comment is the stuff of dreams' ★★★★ (List). ★★★★ (ThreeWeeks). 'Comic Genius' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Brilliant, unusual and very funny' (Josie Long).
