Have your say

Mid-Brow save the best ‘til last, an amusing sketch about the death of Caesar.

Star rating: **

Venue: Gilded Balloon at the Counting House (Venue 170)

That’s not saying much, though, given the quality of what precedes it. You know how you feel cheated when a show doesn’t fill the advertised slot? In this case, 45 minutes of the allotted hour was quite enough. I suspect Tom Blackwood and Alex Cooper are as relieved as the rest of us; they seem awfully pleasant, and can do funny voices, but have a tin ear for humour. They do give away salami, which is nice.

Until 28 August. Today 7:30pm.
