Camden Comedy Club presents:
BEN VAN DER VELDE: SIDEKICK & RHYS JAMES: WORK IN PROGRESS
Some people are life's heroes, its leading men and women. They're full of swash, buckle and daring-do. Others are happy to stand at the side and hold their jackets. For every Fred Flinstone, there is a Barney Rubble. Every Yogi needs a Booboo and all Sherlocks need a patient Watson. This is a show about the men and women who pick up the pieces whilst the main man is busy humping the heroine after the credits have rolled.
