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

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

Tuesday, November 23rd, G&B’s New Act Competition

Last night saw the return of G&B's New Act Competition. Now it took us years to do a competition night because by and large I don’t like the atmosphere they engender as they feel contrary to that which we go out of our way to encourage at G&B. When an audience takes part in the judging process, the comedy often doesn’t get appreciated for what it is as it is being judged set by set. Really? said the G&B crowd. Hold our drinks. Well, at the end of the evening the acts gave a round of applause to the audience,

LGBT Night, Tuesday, August 31st, Star of Kings

Last night at Star of Kings was our first LGBT night in over 18 months and it was an absolute blast. First to the stage, and fitting snugly under its low ceiling, was James Murphy, our favourite jolly rainbow giant. James quickly informed everyone that he now has a boyfriend, so ‘that backdoor is now spoken for!’. It was then over to Ahad Haider, who is confident he picked the right side of the battle of the sexual dynamics and who is a dab hand at puppetry. The wonderful Renata Pereira was after Ahad with some 80’s nostalgia…which she seems
