Still Life

Cinema Nova (early) / Umbrella Revolution (late)

til March 18

His last show was produced by Noel Fielding from The Mighty Boosh. It's worth mentioning because he shares some of the same absurdist humour as The Boosh. The lights go down and Paul Foot starts the off stage announcement, but it goes so well that he seems reluctant to start the actual show. He spends five minutes out of sight debating with himself wether people would prefer to enjoy a continuing off stage announcement instead of his actual show. When he does appear it's not on the stage but in the audience who he proceeds to get close up and personal with whilst animatedly discussing the pros and cons of celebrity cockerel sanctuaries and giving us a run down of how the show will run, once he starts it. I was in stitches for most of the night, but it wasn't for everybody and there were a few walk outs. But those that stayed absolutely loved it.
