Riverside's big draw, beyond a well-priced bar stocked with Hoegaarden, is its star power - big hitters (read: people who have been on Mock The Week, ever) like Jimmy Carr, Stephen K. Amos, Mark Watson and Russell Howard are slumming it amongst the up-and-comers like Andi Osho, professional posh-kid Jack Whitehall and Little Britain-in-waiting Lee Nelson. Local Richard Herring puts the finishing touches to 'Christ on a Bike' mark II on 22 July and Pappy's take it right down to the wire with 'All Business' on 30 and 31st July.
It wouldn't be Riverside Studios without a touch of the theatrical - Colours is a "haunting and raunchy" play, which we only hope errs on the side of "funny" rather than "terrifying."
Tickets range from £7.50 for someone you've barely heard of to £12 for someone you have, which leaves plenty left over from a twenty for a pint or two at the picturesque Riverside bar.
