Dave presents Comedy In The Dark at the Soho Theatre
There are few things which are better off done in the dark. The cinema is one, others are best left to the imagination. Comedy however usually strictly adheres to the rules of the visible spectrum.
So to be given the chance to (watch?) some well known comedians perform with the house lights firmly off was an intriguing proposition. Gracing the stage at the Soho Theatre last Sunday included Phil Nichol, Abandoman, Seann Walsh, Chris McCausland and MC Mark Olver, who made a mockery of the pre-announced ‘safe word’ by pointing out our location in central London.
I may be more likely to be fondled on leaving the theatre as much as I am sitting here in the dark, he says as the audience is ushered to the seats and the lights go out.
