Wednesday, June 29th, Arch One

We were at Arch1 last night for our usual Wednesday show and kicking things off we had Rover Tumnus (aka Ben Henley) the UK’s only working comedy dog. Rover seemed to be having a good time on stage, if the wagging tail was anything to go by. It was then over to Callum Mackenzie who comes from a place where swollen prostates and telegrams from The Queen are commonplace. After Callum was Zach Marczika who had us wondering whether the reason batman never leaves Gotham was because Bruce Wayne had an asbo and ankle tag. Matthew Healy was next with

Wednesday, Arch One, June 22nd

t was an evening of non-stop laughs at Arch1 last night. With everyone on cracking form, MCing couldn’t have been an easier job. First up was the hilarious Marc Salmon, the codfather of comedy with the toe fetish…or the toe/finger fetish, to be precise. After Marc we had Joe O’Donovan, who had us all reminiscing the old days when parents put kids on dog leads. Lila Robirosa then educated the room as to just how one treats dysentery and why you shouldn’t be too eager to get rid of old take-away boxes. We then had the triumphant return to the

Wednesday, March 23rd, Arch One

What an incredible night of comedy we had at Arch1 last night, a packed, capacity room with a cracking line-up. An easier job as an MC would be hard pressed to find. Kicking things off we had the utterly puntastic Chris Roaf. Chris explained the difference between moths and goths: one is attracted to the light, the other is attracted to…well, eyeliner. Hugo Hayes was after Chris with news that you can now buy reasonably priced, public school boys. It’s a brave new world we live in. Hot on Hugo’s heels was Louise Barron, who reckons being sexually liberated where

Wednesday, March 16th, Arch One

We were at Arch1 last night and kicking things off we had Bond fan Matt Heath, with the first of the evening’s suggestions for what prince Andrew might consider for future employment. The marvellously musical Barbara Fernandez was next. Barbara, as it turns out, sang at her ex-agent’s funeral. At least until security stopped her. It was then over to Ryan Sheehan who has got to a place in life where he really knows himself…and knows he’s utterly fucked. The brilliant Elliott Brown was next with the full range of bakery kinks from bread fucking to loaf sniffing and bagel

Tuesday, March 15th, Star of Kings

It was Rohan Sharma who kicked off the show Tuesday night at The Star of Kings. Rohan confessed that when he was a kid he couldn’t wait to turn 16 and to exercise that extra purchase power to buy a second paracetamol. It was then over to Ajay Rose and his relationship with his therapist, which can only be described as competitive. We then had Amber Phillips, who ruined supermarket bread for all of us, before Jack Charles gave us a musical lament to the very bakers Amber maligned. It was then over to Tree Bradstreet who has decided to

February’s New Act Competition

Sunday at The Star of Kings was G&B’s New Act Competition and the standard was absolutely incredible. And like our second ever new Act competition back in 2019, it came down to one vote separating the top two. On this occasion, that all important deciding vote went to Rohan Sharma, who won the cash, the trophy, the lifetime’s BYOB credit and a paid guest spot on the next New Act Competition in March. So congratulations to Rohan.
