Seeing this car crash of a show was a waste of two precious hours of my life. If you like expletive filled nonsense with attempts to discomfort the audience then maybe this is your thing but it's not mine. As someone said before, if the...More

Singularly the worst comedian I have ever seen live. Unintelligent, aggressive but most importantly..... not funny.

I went there with my husband just for a good laugh before dinner on our anniversary. The venue was slightly dodgy and very small and the comedian was standing between the seating area to the toilets... It was ok considering it's free unless you want...More

I decided to attend the show in Hertford at the last minute. I suppose I thought that a 2 hour free show would be worth seeing, but what's that saying about a free lunch? Exactly, there's no such thing and that analogy also spreads to...More

“Lewis Schaffer’s tragi-comic conversation at the Free Fringe had warmth, intimacy, honesty and some incredible sick jokes passed off as matter of fact observations before a rapt audience. Schaffer’s real tragedy at the moment is that he is making this difficult stuff look so easy...More

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
