Though he has amassed a number of sterling reviews and worldwide acclaim you might not recognise Paul Foot were you to pass him in the street, even with his magnificent three-haircuts-in-one barnet. Despite his high regard in comedy circles with Noel Fielding an avid fan and no doubt disciple of his style, Foot has not had the same exposure you might expect of someone with such a brilliantly crafted comedic mind. To watch Foot in action is to immediately become a fan (or connoisseur as Foot likes to call his legion) and to be in consternation at why household namery hasn’t been afforded such a surreal genius. Thankfully Group Therapy Comedy Club are allowing you to address this conundrum by becoming an afficianado yourself with this headline show for him at Gorilla accompanied by the equally excellent Tom Stade and Ed Gamble at the beginning of June. You shan’t be disappointed.
