Some Calf work, Saxondale, a bit of Thickett and plenty of Partridge.
31 January 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

If, like me, you're a fan of Steve Coogan then you'll find plenty here to enjoy but it's certainly not his best work, lagging behind earlier live shows such as "The Man Who Thinks He's It" and "Live 'n' Lewd".

Pauline Calf is the first character to put in an appearance and isn't too bad, improving quite a bit when reading extracts from her latest novel. Then it's Tommy Saxondale and some sage advice about drugs. Duncan Thickett, the comedian who walks on backwards, gets time onstage and provides some gags before trying out some ventriloquism that turns pretty dark. Then Paul Calf wheels himself onstage and ends the first half on a high note.

The second half, understandably, revolves around Alan Partridge. He shares his usual messages of motivation before presenting a short play directed by, written by and starring . . . . . . . Alan Partridge.

A finale in which Coogan admits that at times he can be quite a *let's just call it an expletive deleted* but that everyone in the audience can also be a *let's just keep calling it an expletive deleted* rounds things off rather nicely.

I will always like anything that Coogan does but this show isn't one I'll revisit all that often. Mind you, it will tide me over until I eventually get all of his back catalogue in shiny disc form once more.
