Comedy#2. Steve Richards, @ The Park Theatre, Rock and Roll Politics, July 6th 2014
Super cool gig in a super cool venue. I’d always looked in at The Park Theatre when I lived in Finsbury Park, but I never saw anything that took my fancy. So it was nice to see Steve Richards was booked there, the compere we’d seen at the TEDxHouseofparliament a couple of weeks previous.
Steve Richards talked about the discourse of politics. He was fantastic. He talked about the Shakespearian tragedy and comedy of politics, and the unfortunate inauthenticity of today’s politicians. Favourite anecdote had to be about Pastygate and Cameron’s attempt to prove he’d eaten one.
