This Christmas special won’t change anyone’s minds. The stars deliver gags as creaky as their limbs but with irresisitible relish; there’s some half-arsed slapstick; Rheon is underused; and the action never leaves the confines of the flat. In truth, it’s a little underpowered this time round. De La Tour and Warren waltz off with the best lines and the wholly familiar narrative – a botched Christmas get-together – doesn’t add much to the occasion. But the indulgent and sofabound may enjoy a few chuckles here and there.
This popular central London boozer is a good place to drink and an even better place to party. The venue hosts numerous club nights and nightlife events that are focused firmly on full-fat fun, from quirky karaoke, indie nights and live music to comedy, awards shows and even storytelling. And if you need sustenance? There's a food menu influenced by the USA. That means wings, burgers, a range of mac 'n' cheese, steamed buns with black treacle bacon belly and ancho relish, oak-smoked brisket chunks and nachos, served with all the trimmings.
Venue says: “Don't forget London's best new material comedy night. Old Rope. Every Monday with acts incl Rich Hall, Katherine Ryan and James Acaster!”
