Rollicking Rik Mayall in "The New Statesman"

We went to see Rik Mayall in "The New Statesman" at the Hexagon theatre, Reading this evening.

We were laughing from beginning to end. It was the best evening's entertainment we've had for years. The writing from Marks and Gran is excellent. But, of course, Rik Mayall is brilliant.

It was wonderful to see him doing such a demanding role. He has to speak very quickly and voluminously. There are a lot of lines for him remember. It is marvellous that he recovered from his quad bike accident so well.

Anyone with even the slightest interest in politics should see this show (indeed there were two members of parliament at this evening's performance). It is wonderful.
