When was the last time a night bookended by conversations on Nietzsche and Schopenhauer was greeted with such uproarious laughter? Compèred by the effervescent Jim Grant and featuring seven comedians, Cazza Comedy provided ample bang for your buck, so much so, that even the rare lulls in amusement can be forgiven. Opening comic Sean McLoughlin’s animated meanderings on sexual failings and Catholicism proved hilarious, as he rivalled Kevin Precious as the best of the early acts. But headliner Robin Ince’s (above) frenzied, fiercely intelligent and desperately funny assault on news, politics and Natasha Kaplinsky stole the plaudits, on a highly recommended night.
