Tuesday, Star of Kings, June 28th

Write-up done by our guest MC, Barbara Fernandez. We had a packed night of comedy at The Star of Kings yesterday! And the acts were well up for it. Kicking off the night was the wonderful Greg Houston who had us dreaming of the possibilities behind weed donuts. If only! Next was punster Mark Rivlin: cars that fail their MOT? Don’t get him started! It was then over to Theresa Bradstreet who had to make sure none of her 4 ex husbands were in the room…or letterboxes, either! Liz Lohn (Liz Maslakova) shared her favorite Easter egg hunt: laying her own

G&B’s Abandoning The Comfort Zone, Arch One, June 15th

So last night at Arch1 was G&B’s Abandoning The Comfort Zone show, the night where punsters try character acts, observational acts try crowd work, character acts try observational stuff etc. Here everyone leaves behind their usual styles and material and tries their hands at something completely different and out of their comfort zone. The spirit of the night is that everyone is putting it on the line so they’re all in the same boat together. No one gets to hide behind their old styles and material. First up to the stage and putting it on the line was Ben Henley

Monday, Star of Kings, May 16th

Last night at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Growing Old Disgracefully Show, the night where acts who are still haunted by the whine of dial-up get to get up on stage and not see blank faces when they use terms like ‘mix-tape’. First to the stage, and getting things off to a cracking start, was Mark Vincent and his swollen prostate. It was then over to He who cannot be named’s understudy, Nicky Vere-Compton…and Nagini! After HWCBN was the puntastic Mark Rivlin who is opening a chip shop in Bahrain called Sultan Vinegar. It was then over to Rabiah

Sunday, Star of Kings, April 24th

Yesterday’s Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings was a load of fun. Kicking things off was the brilliant Greg Houston who’s a little put out by religious fundamentalist types and why he’s never been targeted for radicalisation. That’s a rejection too far. Next was Jack Short and the dubious efficacy of some sanctions, like why Disney’s Anastasia should be cancelled. Tino Giaccotto was after Jack with the problems of insomnia…which comes in grams, apparently. Benedetto Sacco was hot on Tino’s heels with, well, I think it was something about the Jamaican weather house where the world’s meteorologists live. I could

Sunday, February 6th, Star of Kings

Yesterday’s Sunday afternoon comedy at The Star of Kings was another of our Growing Old Disgracefully shows…and did it live up to its name! Kicking things off we had the wonderful Theresa Bradstreet and the arid joys of the menopause. It was then over to Nicu Tematoru who regardless of how many people he knows doing it, he refuses to shave his legs. Next was the mellifluous marvel that is Barbara Fernandez, who sang at her ex-agent’s funeral. Turns out the security was sorely lax. It was then over to Ben Henley, winner of the evening’s Harold Shipman look-a-like competition

Tuesday, September 28th, Star of Kings, Growing Old Disgracefully Show

It was G&B’s Growing Old Disgracefully Show at The Star of Kings last night and true to form it was an absolute cracker of a night. Kicking things off with a hilarious take on male grooming products was the brilliant Gary Munchausen, putting the machismo back in hair care. It was then over to Georgia Thorp, a lady who once fancied being an astronaut, despite not being great at maths, but can float really well. Eddie Black was next with his confession that he hates kids can’t be doing with them…and told his daughter’s teachers that much. The utterly puntastic
