Comedy Central Live review

Comedy Central might have had trouble attracting punters to its first live festival - surely not helped by the fact it would have initially cost £90 to see a day's stand-up, a price subsequently slashed to £20, or a tenner if you went on Groupon - but they had no such problem attracting the top-notch acts.
