Review: Charles Booth: VSOP @ Brighton Fringe

This review was originally written for The Reviews Hub

Comedian Charles Booth’s hour-long show at The Warren presents a brisk menagerie of idiosyncratic characters, from a homosexual fisherman desperately hiding in the closet to a psychotic Scottish flatmate obsessed with soup, with enthusiasm and élan. 298 more words
