In they came, suited lads in their twenties with turn-up fringes, most of them waiting for the curtain to rise before rushing off to the loos. Popcorn was thrown into mouths, teeth picked of liquorice, burps unguarded. No one warned me to take my sick bag. The good news is that a London theatre was chock-full with young people - all for their comic hero Steve Coogan. ——————————————————————————————————1/4—— by Victor Olliver TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium

His Pauline Calf drag persona - all frizzy blonde hair and bondage dress - offers an interesting contrast with Lily Savage. Whereas Savage is all waspish camp, Calf is basically an anti-bloke joke - odd considering the source. ——————————————————————————————————2/4—— Comedy Clubs are listed on p457 TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium

Coogan's obsession is with characters who are completely unaware of their effect on others, hence the comic distance between ego and experience. Dave Daft, Paul Calf - all the Coogan personas are revived. Even Latin singer from hell Tony Ferrino dazzles as he murders his third wife. ——————————————————————————————————3/4—— Steve Coogan is profiled on p451 TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium
