Wednesday, May 4th, Arch One

We were ar Arch One last night and what a brilliant night it turned out to be with everyone brining A game sets. There’s something special about Arch One, something that brings the best out in both acts and audiences. First to the stage last night was the hilarious Sam Adamson and how a confident hand shake is no substitute for a bedtime story. The Tim Biglowe was next. I know, we got Tim Biglowe off the telly to come to G&B! I have to pinch myself sometimes. Now it must have been tough to follow such a big name

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

I’ve said it several times since lockdown ended, the standard of comedy coming from the new acts arriving on the circuit is seriously impressive. Maybe it was 18 months watching Netflix comedy specials or studying their comedy idols, but whatever it is, the G&B audiences are loving it. Opening the show last night we had Tom Cousins, who might be a serial killer in waiting…if his mattress’s damp crop circles are anything to go by. It was then over to Joey Abels and why sublime is no compliment if you’re a lemon. The utter legend that is Jimbo was after

We were at Arch1 last night and what a cracking show it turned out to be. Getting the crowd off to a brilliant start was the hilarious Sam Adamson with sex toys, playground oddities and inflatable siblings. It was then over to Duffy Connors and a few tips on how to make those ferry journeys fly by before Tino Giaccotto told us he’d moved here to learn English, but after two years working in a restaurant, he’s now fluent in Spanish and Polish, but no better with English. After Tino was Phillip Cornwall, escaping from the corporate world one reclaimed

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

Sunday, January 30th, Star of Kings

When we first started our Sunday afternoon shows I wasn’t sure how they’d be received. Would people really want to spend their Sunday afternoons in a dark, windowless comedy club? It seems the answer to that question was a resounding yes, as our Sunday afternoon shows have gone from strength to strength and are always packed with a great crowd. Yesterday was no exception. Kicking things off with a cracking set was Greg Houston who had us all wonder why barbers serve coffee and why he hates Djokovic so much. It was then over to Gary Manhine, a man desperately
