The only joke worth mentioning was the fact that the audience had to pay for a seat. The script completely lacks imagination and seems to rely on foul mouth tirades to gain a laugh from the audience. Quite why this talented cast took on this...More

I only have to look at Lee Evans and I start to laugh. I have only seen Sheila Hancock in 'classical' roles previously so to see her in a down to earth 'chavvy' type role was hilarious. I have seen that the show has had...More

Not funny, every other word is the "C" word, we paid good money to go and see someone we love to watch (Lee Evans). The reality is a totally unfunny 2 hours 20 minutes, of characters in a Lounge talking for the duration utter rubbish...More
