Simon Evans – Leashed

  • Critics choice

Slick, super-sharp wit from this 'Live at the Apollo' star who brings his hit show from last year's Edinburgh Fringe to Soho. Evans has a new family dog, and uses this as a neat hook to veer off into bone-dry jokes on topics including family life, living in Hove and middle-class woes.

Mondays are improv shows, Tuesday's show features an hour-long solo show or Edinburgh Fringe preview, and Wednesdays and Sundays are new act and new material gigs. To

Robin Williams was a wonderful man and I think whoopiee has glued herself to his image.  his quote:

"I use to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. its not. the worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone." quotes Robin Williams; and I think this was about the comedian whoppie: "never pick a fight with an ugly person...they got nothing to lose." There has to be other comedians who can represent Robin Williams life and jokes out there. Every thing about Robin Williams makes money --don't you other comedians want a cut of the pie?  Robin Williams needs other representation other than whoppiee.  She has glued herself to his image long enough and the next generation needs to study this approach and get in on it!
