July 31st, New Act Competition

So Sunday at The Star of Kings was G&B’s New Act Competition. Joint second place was Ro Dodgson and Cecily Hitchcock, but the outright winner was the utterly hilarious Kerry Ann Boyko, who won the trophy, the cash and the paid guest spot at the next New Act Competition, which will be at The Albany – Great Portland Street on September 6th. Congratulations Kerry Ann!

Tuesday, July 26th, Star of Kings

Write-up by guest MC Gary Manhine. It was an exciting night at The Star of Kings on Tuesday, what with basement floods and excited uproarious crowds upstairs enjoying England’s Lioness’s in the final of the Euro 2022. Nonetheless, a basement blast ensued as we kicked things off with the brilliant David Ian, who’s been getting dates to come around to his flat, just to force him to clean before they arrived. Next up was the sensational Ben Pollard, who’s been working on a book exploring the behind the scenes truth about the dog-kicking, incontinent, sausage fingered Tory party. All the

Girlpower Night, Star of Kings, July 25th

Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez.  What a night we had at Girlpower last night at The Star of Kings! Kicking things off was Jennifer Zheng who says her mom may have kicked her out of her race in Ireland, but here in London she could fall over and land on a white dick. Maeve Boffey says she’s more white Irish than Jen, although her family would disagree: they call her the black sheep (even though she’s the only sheep). Ruth Stone then taught us how to choose the perfect cowpat for a frisbee – right before the raw onion

Tuesday, July 19th, Star of Kings

Write-up by guest MC, Gary Manhine. Last night was the hottest ever-recorded in human history. The beer was at boiling point at The Star of Kings and but the audience melted down the stairs to worship at the alter of air conditioning. Some came for the AC, some for the comedy and it was a scorcher. First up was George Williams, who had been playing Deal or no Deal with his alcohol intake and the consequences therein, including playing drunken MasterChef after a night out resulting in a tasty dish of self-loathing. Next up was the brilliant Callum Mackenzie, who

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

Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez  Another brilliant (and a bit bonkers) night at The Star of Kings! Rosemary Gomes got us off to a great start – now we know why ducks cross the road: they’re in an argument over Row vs Wade. Steve Tillo then gave us the solution to stop people walking while speaking into their phones sideways – a bit of Adele should do it. Speaking of phones, Alex Howard says you know when you’ve had a rough night when your phone doesn’t recognise your face! Now there’s a conundrum. Next was Craig Butler who had

Monday, July 11th, Star of Kings

Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez  Something’s in the air, cause it was another wild night at The Star of Kings yesterday! Opening the show was none other than G&B favourite Donal Vaughan – who may look like he’s lost a scout, but he knows exactly where the anti-vaxxers are: in heaven. Tim Biglowe says mushroom gathering may not be appropriate for a first date, but the purple mood ring in Wetherspoon’s said otherwise! Next was Charlie Evans who says if there’s a God, he’s clearly angry: we made Jeremy Corbyn famous, so maybe we deserve some heavenly brimstone. Continuing

Sunday, July 10th, Star of Kings

Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez  What a zany afternoon we had at The Star of Kings yesterday! At one point my sides hurt(!) Callum Mackenzie got us off to a roaring start – if Americans can shave ‘Freedom’ onto the back of a dog, why don’t Brits proclaim ‘Cut me, I bleed baked beans!’ Next was Holly Kasselder who asks: has anyone else ever been met with the tempting proposition of being milked in a field? Continuing with the dairy theme was Flora Barker who’s sister Utterly Butterly is facing an identity crisis: she may not be dairy, but

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
