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
What a great night we had at Arch1 last night, an amazing crowd who were so up for laughs made it an absolute joy for our acts to bring the funnies. First to the mic was Andy Kyte. Now I’m starting to become a bit of a fanboy when it comes to Andy. Usually when an act say they are going to do some poetry, a bit inside me dies and longs for it to be a quick death. This so isn’t the case with Andy. From Gary’s Cheese Van and violent granmas to Gandhi and the eternal shame of
Show blog by our guest MC Barbara Fernandez Yesterday at The Star of Kings was quite the afternoon! First up was Matthew Healy who cautioned us not to name a baby after the first thing you see: especially if you live in Romford. Next Monica Chatterjee who loves being short enough to call her boyfriends Daddy in the street: when she’s not being baptised in curry, that is. Benedetto Ferretti says that as he’s both Italian and camp, it’s time to stake his claim as a gay mafioso – complete with lots of moving hands. Seam Anderson taught us why
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

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
February 22nd at The Star of Kings sees another of G&B’s Dark Delight Shows, an evening celebrating the darker side of comedy. Definitely an evening not for those who are easily offended or who love to take offence on behalf of someone their neighbour’s sister once met on holiday. Headlining we’ve the gloriously reprehensible Anthony Gilét and the deliciously deviant Declan Kennedy and the rest of the basket of deplorables will be: Hannah O’Donnell Ben Henley Tom Cousins Stephen Portlock Theresa Bradstreet Gareth Edward Jacob Hatton Craig Craw Essam Aljaedy Billy Kerr Mark Vincent Jakob Tanner Joe Davies Jaz Mattu
