Life is to short to link to all of them, but it is good to see Rose Matafeo, John Kearns and Isy Suttie on the bill. Lolly Adefope must be taking a year away from Hollywood.

Originally it took place in tents when it started. This was good if theweather was a bit dodgy. Then Covid came along and they thought “we will just do it outside and socially distanced”. That year it took place but the audience was divided into pairs of seats, each spair six foot apart. I mean, it was a weird set up.

Tickets are £25
