The Horne Section. Lyric Theatre.

I don't think there will ever be a comedy show that is as joy-inducing as The Horne Section. Unfortunately, this was their last Monday residency at the Lyric as they head over to Melbourne for the International Comedy Festival. Joining Alex Horne and his Side Men were Harry Hill, Tom Basden, Tim Key, Shlomo and Andrew Van Buren.

Andrew Van Buren's assistant was wearing the highest cut leotard that I have ever seen; just thought that was worth a mention. Shlomo sent the band off during his set and absolutely killed it - AMAZE. He came back on and beat-boxed during The Side Men and i'm sad to say that it will never sound the same again.

Tim Key recited some poems that I hadn't heard before; I especially liked the one about the milkmaid. Alex Horne joined him for a duet - How Do You Like Your Eggs In The Morning by Dean Martin. OMG, OMG, OMG! Tom Basden looked so trendy with his Nike high-tops and stubble. His cover of Mamma Mia, complete with mariachi trumpet solo from Joe Auckland, was da bomb, y'all. When I grow up i'd like to be as silly as Harry Hill. There was tap-dancing and songs and one liners and plenty of mucking about - HERO.

The evening came to a close with a Michael Jackson medley. Come back soon, Horne Section!

A thought.

I have the loveliest friends in the world. Yup.
