The Theatre Arena was full of problems as Jack Dee and his team of comedians tackled the audience’s issues in a hilarious 75 minute panel show.

Joining the comedian on his help desk was Jeremy Hardy, Seann Walsh, Katherine Ryan and Roisin Conaty as the team of five joked about camping and last night’s thunderstorms that swept through Henham Park.

The audience queued for more than an hour as 550 people packed out the theatre tent, with no spare seats going, and they were treated as the show ran for 15 minutes longer than it should have, with no one complaining.

Those in the audience helped make the show, as they gave their problems to the panel to give advice.

All bases were covered as topics that came up included relationship issues, anger with singing vicars and advice on how to remember the last line of the joke.

There was also time for confessions, including one 11-year-old boy who confessed to the audience, and his mum, that his phone had mysteriously broken.

Although the majority of the resolutions offered weren’t sound advice, all answers given were well received in a show that wouldn’t have looked out of place in the Comedy Arena.
