Howard Read

Drawing without his sidekick

Usually seen performing with his animated sidekick Little Howard, this year’s adult show has Read on his tod with a show that in theory is half-clean, half-dirty and you, the audience, decide which is funnier. The answer is that neither half lives up to its billing, with his somewhat awkward demeanour suggesting that he knows the biggest laughs of the night come from his drawings. (Gordon Eldrett)
