According to The Stage, "JLA's Real Variety Show is known throughout the entertainment industry as being the best in the business.” It has uncovered dozens of stand-ups, musical comedians and visual acts from around the world, and provided an industry ‘premiere’ for the likes of Bill Bailey, Dara O Briain, Jimmy Carr, Michael McIntyre, Rob Brydon, Jason Manford, Rhod Gilbert and Kevin Bridges.
SHOWING ALL 2010
With Alistair McGowan playing host, this year's bill includes Ian Moore,Canadian one-liner merchant Stewart Francis and Geordie favourite Sarah Millican - alongside masterful sets from Micky Flanagan and Terry Alderton. There's also hilarious hip-hop improv from Abandoman, breathtaking hip-hop dance from Boy Blue, 'oom-pop' from Oompah Brass and unbelievable a capella from The Magnets. Many of the 860 organisers and producers in the crowd at Cadogan Hall said this was the strongest ever Real Variety Show - who are we to disagree?
