Big fan!

As is Mrs S. Anytime she nabs a bargain, or successfully carries out something unexpectedly good, she bathes in the warm glow of any praise coming her way with the tongue in cheek question :

"...Did Tubbs do good?..."

 :D
Down like a stick...

I have high hopes that the little leaks in the above article mean that they are returning to the more direct comedy of the first two series rather than the 'clever' approach adopted in the third.

A warm welcome back to The League tonight. A clever set up with several laugh out loud moments and many a titter I thought. It continues tomorrow and concludes Wednesday - which is also when the tour goes on sale!

I was lucky enough to see them live a few weeks ago and they were as funny as when I saw them a couple of times first time around.

A mix of "greatest hits" and new sketches in the first half and an amazing second half following on from the Reunion specials last Xmas.

9.5/10 - would have been 10 if it was all new.
