Probably the most entertaining thing is the dismal state of organisation. On arrival to the Bedford we were directed upstairs then downstairs then upstairs then told we could only eat downstairs. The food arrived after 30 minutes not the promised ten, so we were late heading back upstairs. Despite no forewarning from "We Got Tickets" apparently buying a ticket doesn't mean you get a seat. So we stood behind the wooden pillars and "enjoyed" the view of dried brown paint for the show. Not the best value for a ticket. Such a pity. I'm sure the comedians would feel more than a little sabotaged, not exactly a venue that is fully in support of them. Can't say I'll be back...
