Last night at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Music & Character Comedy Night, easily one of my favourite gigs in the G&B calendar. First up was Barry Allen (aka Mark Nicholas) who gave us some great advice: never look directly at The Sun, because its page 3 is crap nowadays. It was then over to Natalie Durkin and just why she wants a shed. It’s waaaaay darker than you might think. Daniel and Molly was next with everything from global politics to artificial intelligence and horny robots. We then had a bit of comedy class from Tasmin Sarkany and
That outrageous rollercoaster ride of crazy, The Music & Character Comedy Night, is back at The Star of Kings on May 3rd. If you’ve never been to one of these, they’re quite simply the most fun you can have with your clothes on…and clothing on stage isn’t guaranteed with these nights! Headlining May 3rd we have that cheery bundle of joy, everyone’s favourite grumpy cabbie, Doug Graves. And then to put a final cherry on the night’s crazy cake we have the one and only Rev Pie-Crust (aka Paul Gardner).
Tuesday night at The Star of Kings turned out a really fun show full of new faces. First up was Danny Scott and the joys of being a teacher in the garden of England, which is just behind the Greggs of Kent. Next was James White who hasn’t, as of today, bought a plastic bag in five years; he just steals them now. After James we had another James this one James Danielewski and the suitable punishment for putting milk in your tea first: chain them to a radiator. Just ask Boy George! It was then the turn of Matthew
So last night was G&B’s Dark Delights, our homage to all things dark and twisted in comedy and what a fabulous night it was. Kicking things off we had Billy Kerr who reckons losing your hair is a bit like losing your virginity: it’s all over and done before you know it. Jaz Mattu was next with his lamentation to Bobbins the cat…plus a fuck you to comedy course advice. We then had the deliciously dark diva, Hannah O’Donnell who gives kudos to Eunice’s recent blowjob skills. Stephen Portlock was after Hannah with spunk in the eye of God before
Despite several no-shows last night, we had a really fun show. The utterly hilarious Chandkiran N kicked things off with a cracking set that educated us all in sub-continent continence etiquette and the effete nature of the Andrex square. Aidan Fox was next with some ponderances on the advantage of sight and the disadvantages of owning a trump shirt. We then had some parenting wisdom from Mark Peace: if you can’t beat your child, why have them? I think he nicked that from the Dalai Lama. Laura Mackenzie was after Mark with tales of being a mature student at bar
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
Headlining December 1st at Arch1 we have the brilliant Sean Knox and the utter legend that is Jimbo. Bringing the laughs for the rest of the night we have this fabulous lot: Doug Graves Barbara Fernandez Jack Davies David Parsons Omodara Olatunji Mr Lorraine Connor Yeates Lim Ajay Rose Joseph O’Donovan Louis Brady Emma Richardson Marc Molnar Tom Cousins Peter Wallace Show starts at 7.30pm.
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
