Great venue, intimate and personal, as comedy should be.
Saw the fringe, amazing comics in a great space, one of the funniest nights we had in a long time. Highly recomended!

1/3 fabulous 2/3 dull
I went to this event with my husband, sister and our four children aged between 18 and 22. We were very aware it was a work in progress and happy that the comedian's would be using notes from time to time. Russell Howard was the first act and he was stellar - achingly funny and a thoroughly good egg too. Rob Delaney arrived late with a page of notes and no punchlines, announcing at one point that he didn't care what we thought of him. He appeared completely lost and asked how long he'd been on stage. On hearing "40 minutes" he wrapped it up as soon as possible. This was the laziest performance I've ever seen. Tiff Stevenson started funny but then descended into a long long discourse around social conscience so that we all felt we were attending a rather uninspiring lecture rather than a comedy show. We all wished we'd left after Russell Howard's performance

Hilarious - As usual!
If you've not been before, you are missing out! Laughter guaranteed! Now you have the perfect setting to accuse your friends of the most heinous crimes and if guilty, punishments abound! haha

Phoenix Fringe - Douieb / Maxwell/ Helm.
As usual with the Phoenix Fringe event a lot more chairs were squeezed in to the little Oxford Circus basement than usual but luckily the high calibre of comedians distracted well from cramped legs and numb bums that comes from watching 3hrs+ in the row of comedy. As a previous attendant I brought a comfy coat to sit on.
Tiernan Douieb was great as always.
Andrew Maxwell reminded my how funny he was after quite a few years of not seeing him around the circuit much.
Nick Helm was his usual amazing self, showing why he is firmly in the top 10 live comedians in the UK. Shouty, thought provoking and hilarious.
