A topical stand-up show. Come and see a different take on the news, from the makers of www.somenews.co.uk hosted by Steve N Allen.
It’s the show that made Three Weeks say in their 4-star review:
“This little gem of a comedy news show hosted by the charmingly affable Steve N. Allen.” “Allen hits the mark more often than not, with an effusive mix of biting satire and gleeful mud-slinging that recalls Russell Howard by way of Ian Hislop. More than worth a look.”
‘Apollo-quality live comedy’ **** (ThreeWeeks)
‘Very funny, cutting wit’ (Time Out)

Professionally since 2002. Inadvertently, all my life.
