Gruntled – Andy Parsons Live 2011

Posted by on 12/11/2011 • Categorised in Other


Well-known for his on-screen comedic actions in BBC’s Mock the Week, Andy Parsons, had a one night stop at Leicester’s Curve theatre (Friday November 11). The satire comedy show was delivered to a packed auditorium in the cities prestigious state-of-the-art glassed theatre.

In the first half of the show Parsons talked politics, war and ended on religion and sex intertwined. His wealth of knowledge and innate way of seeing the comedy elements in the most mundane scenarios had most of the audience laughing almost to the point of howling. At the end of the first half Parsons left the audience with a sarcastic hint to what he’d be doing during the interval and he continued this joke when the audience returned for the second half. The audience adorned Parsons with laughter and claps at every poignant punch line.

During the second half the gags got more elicit which seemed to please the Leicester audience whose laughter got more husk and broad. The second half is a blur after Parsons revealed that he had discovered a pair of underpants in a mayonnaise jar. This wacky anecdote was the highlight of the show. Parsons also used the second half to highlight some of the behind-the-scenes workings of the BBC series he’s most famous for appearing in and continued to poke fun at the coalition but most notably PM Cameron.

If you’re looking for a night of light and dark humour then catch Parsons on his third tour of the country while you still can!
