A Beginner's Guide to Happiness (1 star)

This article is from 2008.

The highlight of Paul Conneely's torpid rumination on happiness is an anecdote about missing a train when a man at the front of the ticket queue asks a meaningless and complex question while those behind suffer silently. I can identify - not so much with the joke, but because I found myself suffering silently while the Londoner stumbles through time-honoured comedic fodder in a lumbering, clichéd, evidently nervous manner.

We had pre-booked for this show and after reading the above nearly decided not to go.
Glad we ignored the review!
Went last weekend, packed audience, good laugh, good pace and quirky observations.
