Saw the Mighty Boosh at the Hexagon in Reading last month and I have to say it was very very amusing live. I wasn’t sure at first as have only watched a few on TV, but, since seeing them on DVD and now live I would recommend you take a look if you’ve never seen it.
No, not The Herbaliser album, though that’s very good, this is the Derren Brown 2005 tour.
Again at the Hexagon in Reading saw this on Friday night and I have to say I was impressed. I’ve been very sceptical to say the least of his TV shows in the past but always intrigued none the less.
Having seen him live and some of the stuff he does, he’s good, he’s very good. The power of suggestion and the way he gets people to do things is not only scary, clever but very inevitable (one for anyone else there 😉 )
It was well worth the money there’s plenty more dates on his tour so if there’s one near you, off you go. It’s inevitable.
Not sure what made me book up these tickets, but, damn glad I did. Jack Dee’s on his 2005 tour, and, he’s very very good.
I’ve always liked him and am getting more into the comedy scene. The show at Reading’s Hexagon was a full sell out and it really helped the atmosphere. As well as a funny “stock” show he also had a lot of local based humour and takes on stuff which was very amusing. Especially the Cemetery Junction related bits, that will make sense if you know Reading at all!
If you get the chance, go see him.
