Sunday, December 12th, Star of Kings

As we head closer to Christmas, the party buzz at the club gets livelier with each gig and yesterday’s Sunday show at The Star of Kings was no exception. Kicking things off we had the fabulous Lisa Carroll. Lisa describes herself as the BFG with tits and despite intimidating some men says she’s a fucking kitten! It was then over to Benjamin Bryant who’s had to endure a conversation with someone recently that was so peppered with racist dog whistles it’s a wonder dogs weren’t howling outside. Next was Flora Butter, a lady from a long line of nutritious spreads

December 14th, Star of Kings, Camp as Christmas Show

Last night was G&B’s Camp as Christmas Show at The Star of Kings and it certainly lived up to its title. First up was the irrepressibly Northern Natalie Durkin, a gal who doesn’t own a coat and whose favourite tipple is gravy. It was then over to Oli Riordan, who loved having divorced parents as a kid because it meant double the gifts at Christmas. We then had Sassy Clyde, who once and for all put the scissoring myth to bed. It was then over to Dane Buckley, who says he’s half Irish and half Indian and whose nan says

Wednesday, December 8th, Arch One

Last night we were at Arch1 and had a cracker of a line-up in store for the crowd. First up was Shahbaaz who offered a theory as to why Christians like to hold on to their traditions: chocolate eggs at Easter, pressies and food at Christmas as opposed to praying five times a day and starving yourself for a month every year. It’s a tough sell. We then had Lisa Carroll and the pain and suffering caused when Facebook and Instagram went down and she was unable to share news of the gorgeous man she’d met. Her pain was real,

Tuesday, December 7th, Star of Kings, Nightmare Before Christmas Show

Six years ago to the day was our first G&B’s Nightmare Before Christmas show, an evening dedicated to comedy’s darker side. It was from the success of this night we developed our Dark Delights shows (the next one is February 22nd), a space where acts could experiment with darker comedy in the knowledge an audience knew what was in store. Good dark comedy is possibly the most difficult to hone and perfect. Too often we see young comics come to the stage with tasteless gags that they think are funny and when they get a cold response from a room

Thursday, December 2nd, Royal George

It was a slightly quieter night than usual at Royal George Charing Cross Road last night, but the past couple of months have been packed to bursting, so a little more legroom was kinda nice. That said, they were a lovely crowd, so all in all a fun night. Our MC for the evening was the brilliant Steven Mayne who wasted no time getting the room energised and laughing before bringing on our first act of the night, the hilarious Pete Kinsella. Pete has never been to prison, a fact he likes to get out of the way early on,

Wednesday, December 1st, Arch One

Well we had an awesome night of comedy at Arch1 last night. Everyone was on cracking form and the audience were lapping it up. First to the stage was the sumptuous, sartorial silliness of Jack Davies and just why blow-jobs are wrong and complimenting someone’s shoes is an insult. Next was Danny John Scott, the teacher who is inspiring a whole new generation of burger technicians and Hollyoaks’ extras. It was then over to Shuang Teng who learned a whole new language because she was just too polite to correct a colleague who thought she was Japanese. Next was the

Tuesday, November 30th, Star of Kings

We were at The Star of Kings last night and the show kicked off with some laughs from Jim Brown and some of the little things he tried during lockdown. Divorce was his least favourite. It was then over to the brilliant Holly Kasselder. Holly describes herself as one of life’s ‘medium’ type people, but our audience definitely thought she was one of life’s fabulous people! We then had Jamie Skepper, who comes from a long line of torch bearers and tightwads. Marc Molnar was next with why he would get paranoid and check if he’d crapped himself any time

Sunday, November 28th, Girlpower at The Star of Kings

Yesterday at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Girlpower, and what a cracker it was. Our MC for the afternoon was the wonderful Charlotte McKinney who kept the crowd loving the Girlpower vibe. The first act Charlotte brought to the stage was Lily Webb, who is easily the greatest example of opposites attract you’ll ever find. Next was Sarah Bowles, a lady who knows way too much about her neighbours’ sex life thanks to bad sound insulation. It was then over to Phoebe Hitt and the joys of the friendship lunge, which she will be copyrighting very soon. After Phoebe

Thursday, November 25th, Royal George

It was another capacity room at Royal George Charing Cross Road last night and they were a wonderfully up for it crowd, too. It was a perfect room to make your MC debut and that’s exactly what Steven Mayne got. As far as first MC spots go, Steven nailed it. The first act of the night Steven brought to the stage was the hilarious Tom Gaskin with just why crabs might enjoy a cocktail umbrella. After Tom we had Sadie Clark. Sadie’s observed that the straight, white men in her life seem to spend half their time apologising for their

Wednesday, November 24th, Arch One

G&B was at Arch1 last night and we had a cracker of a show. Kicking it all off we had Simon Hall, a man who loathes how women are treated and cat called in the street, largely because he gets it himself from building sites thanks to his long hair. After Simon was Lilian Belli, who has found herself recently contemplating lesbianism, if only for a more sophisticated foreplay experience. Rhea Folkers was next with the secrets of the trans handbag and just why the bathroom is always utterly spotless when she leaves. Cedric Aubert was next with the joys
