Shambles: The Showcase of Budding London Comedy
New online show Shambles launched yesterday as a showcase for budding comedians.
The self-described “half comedy showcase, half nervous breakdown” exhibits new comedy talent, with the programme based around a real London comedy club to give viewers the chance to get a fourth-wall feel to budding comedic entertainment.
Featuring Fosters Comedy Award Best Newcomer John Kearns and the established comedy club that even Harry Hill has been hosted at, the series poses the question: How hard is it to run a successful comedy club?
If the first episode is anything to go by, dismally so, with mild humour and quintessential British awkwardness characterising the stages it takes to get (and keep) the thing running.
Highly amusing in places, while a tad painful in others, you can check out the trailer for Shambles below, and catch episode one at http://wild.sd/shambles.
