The Soho Comedy Club provided a real mix at their unashamedly late night show. We were treated with stand-up from hip G-Daddy Jules Constant, Christian Schulte-Loh, Cool Canadian Vince Flouke and political activist Alan Francis.

Attempting to combine some of the best acts of the Fringe, Constant set off the show well with his party-hard parenting advice and descriptions of the paralytic drunks all free fringe comedians really are. His hyperactive character injected this late night show with the energy it needed. He was followed by the incredibly entertaining Schulte-Loh who used his giant stature to reduce us all into laughing heaps with his tongue-in-cheek style. Explaining that everyone should go to America because of its great reviews (look at the stars on the flag and you’ll understand) he certainly scored highly with his funny, if not wholly original, set.

Having set the bar a little too high, the evening went downhill as Vince Flouke’s technical problems, at first funny, distracted from his act and left most of his jokes falling flat. Alan Francis took serious too far with his odd choices of subjects and a political rant which was less funny than angry. However, that is the risk you take when heading to one of these showcase shows. You won’t always get rip-roaring comedy, but you’ll be bound to have a laugh.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
