It was a busy Sunday at The Star of Kings yesterday, kicking off with G&B Writers’ Group just after midday. I think it’s fair to say the writers’ group meetings are proving a great success. Yesterdays was a really interesting one and I’m already looking forward to seeing what the acts attending come up with. After the Writers group, of course, we had the show and kicking things off there was the hilarious Emily Cairns and her sexy, sexy accordion. Emily treated us to a song dedicated to her one love, that special love that comes along once in your
Headlining Sunday June 5th at The Star of Kings we have G&B’s favourite nerd, the wonderful Roger Clarke and the legend that is Jimbo.
It was our Sunday afternoon show at The Star of Kings yesterday and what a great afternoon it was. I’m loving these early shows. When we first launched these I wasn’t sure how they’d go, but they have been consistently busy with really fun, up for it audiences. First to the stage yesterday was the hilarious Ryan Sheehan who reminded us all that you’re as young as the bills you ignore and the bikes that you ride. Michael Cumes then gave us some of the more interesting names he had to endure during his time at school before Tine Petersen
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
So Wednesday night at Arch1 was G&B’s Dark Delights show, our dark comedy night. I love these gigs so much and last night’s basket of deplorables were just plain brilliant. Kicking things off we had Mike Strogi, who gave the show an explosive start as well as some tips on the right airline to book if you want to fly straight to the office. It ws then over to Tom Cousins and a little nostalgia for the greats of 70’s TV before Connor Yeates explained just why Gordon Ramsey’s advice that you should always eat what you make might have
G&B was at Arch1 last night and we had a cracker of a show. Kicking it all off we had Simon Hall, a man who loathes how women are treated and cat called in the street, largely because he gets it himself from building sites thanks to his long hair. After Simon was Lilian Belli, who has found herself recently contemplating lesbianism, if only for a more sophisticated foreplay experience. Rhea Folkers was next with the secrets of the trans handbag and just why the bathroom is always utterly spotless when she leaves. Cedric Aubert was next with the joys
Last night was our monthly G&B Online show and I didn’t stop laughing from start to finish. Our MC’s last night were the American duo Button Bob and Licksy Gal, ably assisted by Alastair Sadler. The first act they brought to the G&B cyber stage was the punilicious Kyle Davies who laid out the strict rules of vegan club: rule 1, always talk about vegan club; rule 2 – ironically – no meat. It was then over to Anna George who told us all about her day job studying sad, insecure, pathetic arseholes. AKA white supremacists. Next was the fabulous
It was a night packed with new comedy talent at Arch1 last night and the first act to get things going was the hilarious Rabiah Coon. Rabiah, in her search for Mr Right, has decided to extend the distance parameters on her dating apps to ‘anywhere’. It was then over to Shuang Teng who admitted to loving a good old fashioned rom-com on TV, the kind that stars the likes of Fred and Rosemary West or anything to do with a bit of matrimonial cannibalism. Next was Ramon Diaz, who says he’s suffering from infinity dick syndrome, which isn’t quite
