Rachel Fairburn’s showcase aroused funny bones, if not G-spots, with Shappi Khorsandi, Lou Sanders and Will Duggan
If ever there was a time for comedians to diversify their skills, it’s as we enter a second year of closed theatres. Rachel Fairburn’s new format invites them to take the sideways step (or no step at all, depending on the comic) into storytelling. After a spooky stories night for Halloween, and a festive one at Christmas, for Valentine’s weekend Fairburn and friends zeroed in on the audience’s G-spot with Comedians Telling Erotic Stories. They missed – but if the sexual climate remained at room temperature, the gig left our funny bones, at least, in a state of mild arousal.
