The Apocalypse Roadshow

Yorkshire's helpful heroes take their inept phone-in advice service to the road. The show brings all it's pointers on how best to avoid strange men and give birth during a nuclear disaster.The show manages to transfer some of its high energy to the audience despite the muggy performance space. This series of comedy sketches pokes fun at those old favourite punch bags of comedy, Yorkshire characters and St Johns Ambulance. While its silliness and over the top energy was impressive and entertaining, it did not have me rolling round laughing. Often the script was unremarkable, which would grate when combined with the overexcitement of the show to leave me feeling distanced and uninterested. The show is a mixture laugh out loud entertainment and dispassionate intrigue.

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.

Theatre MAD

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.
