Storyline

Recorded live (obviously) at London's Bloomsbury Theatre following a massive sell-out tour, Chris Addison Live is a blisteringly funny experience. Although you won't actually get blisters. That's just an expression. But you can find out for yourself why so many people think Chris Addison is the wittiest, most hilarious (not to mention sweatiest and gangliest) comedian around as he blathers on about subjects from the personal to the, y'know, not so personal in his own unique, highly entertaining, sweaty and gangly style. Daftness! Whimsy! Jokes! Lies! Smartarsery! Flapping about! All present and correct Written by Anonymous

Chris Addison Live - not hilarious throughout but very funny.
22 September 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

He may not be the absolute best stand up comedian that I've ever seen but Chris Addison puts on a live show that contains many moments to have you doubling up with laughter. He may not seem quite up to the task after a lukewarm beginning that involves Mr. Addison repeatedly going on about how much he likes the venue but, trust me, he eventually steps up to the mark and proves himself a very capable and assured comic.

As usual, this kind of show covers a number of topics - the gym, reading up on sex advice for married couples, the mentality of Little Britain and more - but it's all tied together, really, by Chris Addison being exasperated at the ignorance he sees all around him, be it intentional or not.

Some people may be offended by the unusual amount of swearing by the baby-faced young man (who keeps his youthful good looks by drinking the blood of young children) if they only know of him as . . . . . . . that baby-faced young man from Labrats but I like a bit of swearing and so wasn't offended in the slightest.

I've seen much better live shows, to be completely honest, but I really like Chris Addison and I like his very British, ever-so-slightly-repressed-about-ohsomuch, view on the world around him. He's a bit like David Mitchell but with the ability to use technology.
