  • Muddy Reviews: Present Laughter, Theatre Royal, Brighton

    I wasn’t expecting to get belly laughs from a play written in the late 1930s, even one by Noel Coward, but I did. Present Laughter, on at Brighton’s Theatre Royal until Saturday, and starring Downton’s Phyllis Logan (aka Mrs Hughes), is a comedy that, in the right hands ages very well.

  • Literary laughs at The Bad Book Project

    I couldn’t get further than the first page of The Da Vinci Code. The plot exposition was so heavy-handed in the opening paragraph alone that it made me wince. I know, I know, I missed out on a cracking good yarn but I figure life’s too short and my love of books too great for […]

The show, on in Brighton this weekend, tells the story of Victoria Melody’s search […]

      • Review: Bill Bailey, Limboland

          Once, while we were being shown round a posh hotel for work, a friend made me lose all decorum and laugh until wine came down my nose by whispering, “I live in your eyes,” as we walked past the lounge pianist. He knew that as a fellow Bill Bailey fan I would remember this […]
