The Best of Chortle Comedy Tour, feat Alex Horne – 23 November, 2013 – Berry Theatre, Hedge End

Alex-Horne

[Part 3 in the ongoing series of short, late reviews]

Compered by John Robins and headlined by Alex Horne, this show was pretty hit and miss. Robins did a great job in a 20% full theatre and Alex Horne did a reliable job closing things off, but it was clear the other comedians on the bill were early on in their career. Each had a few decent lines but didn’t have a smooth and complete 15 minutes. Given time they could all develop into guys worth looking out for but it’s equally clear that there’s hard work ahead to reach that point. Robins was the find though, and someone I’ll be trying to track down in a show on his own…
