Yes, I would. It was good bit of comedy and good variety of acts. Big up to those in the final and mostly women comedians in the final - Girl Power!

I really enjoyed this event... It was fun to see all the comedians participate in the games... I think the bog roll keepie uppie's could be a new thing... I also enjoyed the guys(& gal) drawing each other. Everyone was such good sports. I defo would see this again.

It was a little bit disappointing as there was only 5 people that watched the event. It got a bit too political and it lost the comical value. I actually preferred to the Isolation Game. It was more lighthearted and fun.

Loved it, Boothby epic as ever and though sorry not to be there live as planned it was fantastic. Only problem was I couldn't work out how to join in comments but that's because i'm a techno numpty. Huge thanks to Boothby and to JokePit for doing this. See you the other side when life is different to how it is right now. Hats off to creativity and can do attitudes though! Ax
