Music Meets Comedy - Alex Horne and The Horne Section

De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill – 30 May, 2014

Written By Grace Vogiatzis

Alex Horne and The Horne section’s show is fun for the whole family- but not in the way you’re thinking. There’s awkwardly inappropriate comedy a-plenty, a “cheeky” bit of nudity and uncouth use of Henry hoovers; that said the many children at the show had a ball and a far as I could tell, no parents were about to launch any complaints.

Mixing up comedy and music, the show comprises of stand up and skits, an onslaught of cringey puns, bizarre songs and attempts at conducting the four-piece band with ping pong balls, punching bags and a giant beach ball (I kid you not). Go prepared to participate and choose your seats carefully- with a hilarious, audience wide game of twister – they will make you touch your neighbours.

Yet another piece of masterful booking by the De La Warr Pavilion - how do they get such great acts? The show, led by comedian Alex Horne, has had rolling success, with four years of selling out shows at the Edinburgh festival, a Radio 4 programme and residencies at London theatres.

It’s smooth comedy that made for a very funny night- catch it if you can.
