'The 5:30 Show was the perfect sort of show for anyone looking for a laid-back "surprise me" outing. With its line up of quality emerging comedians, early time slot, central location, and affordable ticket price, it was the sort of show that made the Comedy Festival accessible to audiences that weren't quite sure what they were looking for, and just wanted to have some laughs.'
