Laughing through the misery

READING the themes of two comedians coming to Bridport’s Electric Palace in June, you would be forgiven for thinking it’s all gone downhill for Hall Cruttenden and Marcus Brigstocke – but you can’t keep a good stand-up down, and both have managed to extract laughter from their misery.

Hal Cruttenden was at the EP earlier in June with his latest show, It’s Best You Hear It From Me.

Marcus Brigstocke, coming to the art deco theatre on 24th June with his latest show, Absolute Shower, looks at the personal triumphs and small victories of the past couple of years … while acknowledging it has, in so many ways, on so many days, for the most part, been an absolute shower of shit.
