Tuesday, May 17th, Star of Kings

It was a buzzing room at The Star of Kings last night with a great line-up to keep the crowd satisfied. First up was Dave Mullen who used to get insecure about stuff, stuff that seemed to come via the rule of five. Ren Pereira was after Dave with what horrifies her most. Is it global warming, the prospect of war? No. Piers Morgan gettin his own TV series again! It was then over to Mark Vincent who is proud of his real man’s prostate before Kym Nelson made us all realise there are some things you just shouldn’t know…like

Yesterday’s G&B started at 1pm with a meeting of our writers’ group, which rather than sit downstairs in the club took up residence outside in the glorious sunshine. From the occasions where I dipped in now and then, they seemed to be getting some great work done. Now with the sun making an afternoon in a dark club less of a fun prospect, I wasn’t sure how busy we’d be. Well, we were absolutely packed and had a cracker of a show. First to the mic was the hilarious Joe O’Donovan who more than anything wants to be as famous

Monday, Star of Kings, April 25th

Monday night at The Star of Kings was our LGBT+ nights and I think it was one of my absolute favourites. First to the mic and kicking things off in true style was the wonderful Lily Webb who has recently deciding to identify as non-binary, because finding new and interesting ways to piss off your parents is a full time job. Next up and keeping things ship shape and spotless was the fabulous Sue-the-Cleaner (aka Liam Harney). Sue has found the cost of living rise tough, so to save money on heating, she has an occasional bath with the toaster.

Sunday at The Star of Kings kicked off with the mellifluous marvel that is Barbara Fernandez, whose top half is very American and her lower echelons decidedly Parisienne. It was then over to Donal Vaughan, a man who proudly proclaims he is an anti-vegan: he can’t eat anything that hasn’t suffered to get to his plate. Next was Cedric Aubert and The Action Man gay nightclub set that came complete with tiny bottles of poppers and leather chaps. After Cedric was Geet Chawla, whose parents were a bit like the EU in as much as they weren’t happy with the

We had another great show full of new faces yesterday afternoon at The Star of Kings. I’ve been so impressed by some of the new acts hitting the comedy scene at the moment and can’t help wonder if, financial crippling aside, the lockdown hiatus may have done some good in resetting and refreshing our stages. First up yesterday was the hilarious Lily Webb. Lily has a feeling God may indeed not be keen on her for being gay, despite trying to throw Him off the scent by once claiming to like Laim Payne…or at least his tattoos. It was then

Wednesday, February 2nd, Arch One

There was a buzz in the air at Arch1 last night that told you right from the off this one was going to be fun show. First up was everyone’s favourite super-ginge, Sam Adamson. Over the years Sam has suffered from the occasional nightmare where he finds himself in the shower looking all the part – or lack thereof – of Barbie’s Ken. It was then over to the fabulous Lily Webb, who once had a faux crush on Liam Payne…for the tats. Talking of crushes, our next act, Matt Lowes, explained, via apple metaphor, just how his sexual attractions

G&B’s Camp as Christmas Show

December 14th is our final LGBT night of 2021 and we’re going out with a bang and a boa with G&B’s Camp as Christmas Show. Headlining we have the hilarious CJ Hopkins and the simply brilliant Dee Allum-Gruselle. The rest of the camp and the crazy will be thanks to this festively fabulous lot: David Ferguson Lily Webb Natalie Durkin Rhys Thorne Gareth Edward Sassy Clyde Ren Pereira Oli Riordan Dane Buckley Bex Bond Philip Ascott Miss Rielle Samia Hussen Lee Campbell Meredith Martyn Marco Chiu Michael Cumes Show starts at 7.30pm at The Star of Kings. Dress code: fabulous!

Wednesday, August 25th, Arch One

It was a fabulously buzzing night at Arch1 last night, great crowd and a cracking line-up. First up was Ren Pereira, a lady for whom 9/11 was a very dark period and a more than memorable homemade airline tampon. It was then over to Danny Walsh who reliably informed us that The Queen couldn’t possibly be a lizard and that it’s just not on to claim you’re the son of God while wearing a Primark tracksuit. After Danny was Liz Maslakova who is doing everything she can to disprove as many Russian stereotypes as possible. Hot on Liz’s heels was
