Tuesday, July 26th, The Albany

Last night was the last of our busy, double gig Tuesdays till The Star of Kings reopens after its refurb in September and we had a cracker of a show at The Albany. Kicking things off we had James Hutt who is still coming to terms with the fact he has been demoted to understudy James in the family Christmas card. It was then over to Fergus O’Doherty and Cameron’s epic Tit-Tanic before Ros Hale confessed she’s no longer doing birthdays, just leaving do’s for her ovaries. Patrick Nevels was next with his love of the phrase ‘elephant in the

Wednesday, July 20th, Arch One

Wednesday nights we’re at Arch1 and it was a thankfully cooler evening. First to the stage was the hilarious Callum Mackenzie and Britain’s most popular food: porage, what would happen if bread died. It was then over to Lizzie Simpson, the boob Macarena and the price of enduring love. Pete Innocente was after Lizzie with the metaphysics of Mum and Dad and just why you never wanna piss off Mum. Keeping with God, it was He who told our next act, Ben O’sullivan, to stop exercising. Well you gotta if God tells you. The fabulous SJ Wyatt was next. There

Monday July 18th, Star of Kings

It was a gloriously cool and chilled room at The Star of Kings last night as we worshipped at the altar of air con. First to the stage was Zach Marczika and the things he misses about Florida, which isn’t the mosquitoes or the meth labs. It was then over to Jack Short who lost 3 stone recently. The audience cheered, which was appallingly body fascist so Jack put them in their place. The fabulous Jennifer Zheng was next. Jen’s mum sent her to Chinese school for 15 years, which left Jen with enough knowledge to realise she was a

Sunday Cabaret Show, Star of Kings, July 17th

So it was a hot Sunday afternoon that saw us having our G&B Cabaret show and the first thing our audience enjoyed, before the show even started, was just how glorious our air con is in the club. Kicking off the show was the hilarious Tawny Owl (aka Andy Kyte) who gave everyone a little pro tip for your sets: rather than write prompt on your hands, write them on the inside of your eyelids…just not in permanent marker! It was then over to the sex bomb himself, Hot Rod (aka Ruth Stone). Rod comes from a somewhat rural location

Tuesday, July 12th, The Albany

Write-up by resident MC and magician Kyle Wallace The air con had malfunctioned at The Albany – Great Portland Street last night, so it was the hot yoga of comedy for the G&B crowd. I’ve been assured it’ll all be fixed for next week, so no need for swimming trunks and beach balls. Sadly I’d brought Missy in thinking it’d be cool. She was not a happy dog. First up was the hilarious Greg Houston whom despite being told by his parents that they don’t have a favourite, Greg’s not buying it…unlike his sister and her second home. We then

G&B’s Pride Show, July 5th, Star of Kings

Tuesday at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Pride Show an evening of camped up fabulousness to put to bed June’s Pride Month. Kicking things off with a mellifluous spectacular was the hilarious Ben Pollard, who had us begging for it harder and faster. It was then over to Rhys Thorne, who was on awesome form after a weekend at Heaven being pimped out by his mum. After Rhys was Texan gal, Kerry Ann Boyko. Turns out Kerry Ann left Texas because she didn’t like the gun crime there. So she moved to Lewisham where she’s finding our knife crime

Sunday afternoon at the Star of Kings, July 3rd

Sunday afternoon’s comedy kicked off with the glorious Rosemary Gomes whom as psychologist really does comedy so others have to sit and just listen to her for a change. It was then over to Duffy Connors whose blood type is AA before we had the history of the sausage and its ancient Greek roots thanks to Samuel Love. It was then over to the hilarious Cecily Hitchcock who reckons at the start of a relationship she gives handjobs like she’s loading a gun, but this soon wanes to the enthusiasm of a half hearted one arm bandit. We then had

June’s New Act Competition Winner

So Tuesday, June 28th was our first show at The Albany – Great Portland Street and it was G&B’s New Act Competition from earlier this month when we had to cancel due to tube strike. Well, it couldn’t have been a better first night with an absolutely buzzing crowd and a full house. It’s a fab stage at The Albany and every act in the competition made full use of it. In joint (not a vote separating them!) second place was Serena Smart, James Hutt and Carwyn Blayney. The outright winner, and I think it’s fair to say he utterly

Wednesday, June 29th, Arch One

We were at Arch1 last night for our usual Wednesday show and kicking things off we had Rover Tumnus (aka Ben Henley) the UK’s only working comedy dog. Rover seemed to be having a good time on stage, if the wagging tail was anything to go by. It was then over to Callum Mackenzie who comes from a place where swollen prostates and telegrams from The Queen are commonplace. After Callum was Zach Marczika who had us wondering whether the reason batman never leaves Gotham was because Bruce Wayne had an asbo and ankle tag. Matthew Healy was next with

Sunday June 26th, Music & Character Comedy Show, Star of Kings

Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Music & Character Comedy Show. These are always a ton of fun and yesterday’s was no exception. Kicking things off we had the wonderful Richard Woolford, who loves nothing more than a bit of knee action. It was then over to Sue the Cleaner (aka Liam Harney). Su’s started dating again, not so much for the sex, though, just to keep ahead of inflation. We then had the musical fabulousness of Cecilia Delatori and a Rolling Stones tribute to Southern Rail. Moss (aka James Watkins) was next with tales from the
