It was an excellent show, especially as I somehow managed to get last minute tickets* with seats 7 or 8 rows back from the front.
The show started off with the 'Lou and Andy' sketch and Matt Lucas made his stage entrance by flying across to his wheelchair with the aid of a jet pack, (erm, wires) while Lou was obviously oblivious to all of this going on behind him.
The Mr Mann sketch had to be my favourite as they messed it up, but kept in character when bantering to each other about the mistake. It was incredibly funny when David Walliams spotted the slip up and said to Matt Lucas, "Your stroking your moustache to cover up your laughter aren't you?" still in his characters deadpan face, and then Matt Lucas completely lost it, started laughing out loud and then said, in his whining character voice, "I hate you!". It all went very ad lib for a moment and then they started the sketch again.
Audience participation was higher than I would of expected, the highlight being when 'Des' (David Walliams) picked two blokes out of the front row (one old, one young) to go on stage with him and he then started 'feeling up' the younger of the two and then made them play 'hide the sausage'. The recovery of the sausage led to 'Des' kissing and molesting the younger member of the audience and finally pulling his trousers down as he was walking off stage! Poor bloke, but what a sport eh!
They then ran through all the usual sketches, one after another; 'Vicky Pollard', 'Daffyd' etc etc etc.
The penultimate sketch was the 'Sebastian and Michael' sketch where David Walliams took all his clothes off, put his winky between his legs and danced around the Prime Minister (not Tony Blair) pretending to be a girl. Seriously funny and that guy really doesn't give a monkey's! Hats off to you Mr Walliams and for any female readers... 'like a horse', compared to me anyhow!
[* 'Cough' I phoned the PA hire company and got guest tickets, shhhhhhhhhh]
P.S. Don't forget to put your clocks forward, back, forward, back... Nope definitely forward!
Today, I'm most angry about: DoGGa's usual unexplainable monthly mood swing.
