Review: Mutton @ King George’s Hall, Blackburn



First published in Comedy Blackpool Citizen: Photograph of the Author by

IT was billed as “a show where you won’t feel embarrassed to wet yourself”.

Personally my bladder never felt threatened, but the group of 50-something women cackling in front of me probably couldn’t have said the same.

Highlights in the sketch show included a sing-along about memory loss and hot flushes and a joke about bullimic shopping (buying clothes then taking them back).

The gag: “My husband keeps asking me to dress up as a nurse. I said at his age a care worker would be more appropriate” also got a big laugh.

Mutton isn’t a show for everyone. I didn’t laugh out loud much, but found it surprisingly uplifting to watch.

All in all, good clean humour, especially enjoyable for women of a certain age.
