Sunday afternoon at the Star of Kings, July 3rd

Sunday afternoon’s comedy kicked off with the glorious Rosemary Gomes whom as psychologist really does comedy so others have to sit and just listen to her for a change. It was then over to Duffy Connors whose blood type is AA before we had the history of the sausage and its ancient Greek roots thanks to Samuel Love. It was then over to the hilarious Cecily Hitchcock who reckons at the start of a relationship she gives handjobs like she’s loading a gun, but this soon wanes to the enthusiasm of a half hearted one arm bandit. We then had

Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings, June 19th

It was a fun and busy day at The Star of Kings yesterday. The afternoon began with our Everything but the Gags workshop at 12.30pm. This workshop was originally done over Zoom during lockdown, so had to be condensed to two and a half hours for our pre-show time slot. I hope everyone got some useful stuff out of it. I suspect there will be some creepy face masks in Amazon shopping baskets today (you had to be there). When the show kicked off at 3.30pm, we had a wonderfully packed room with an audience who were so wonderfully up

Tuesday, May 31st, Star of Kings

What a night we had at The Star of Kings last night! The wonderful Gary Manhine was our MC, and in fine form he was. The night kicked off with Dora Flowers, who recommends not to google Dora p*rn unless you want Alexa to ghost and report you! Next was Rohan Sharma who loves his gran…as a friend. And how do you pronounce ‘latte’, anyway? Olly Clark said he’d missed his shot at fame: if only he’d developed a crippling drug habit! He’ll have to settle for 2 degrees in jazz piano instead… Ben Winter then said his mom can’t

Monday, Star of Kings, May 16th

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

G&B’s Dark Delights at Arch One, April 27th

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

Sunday, March 6th, Star of Kings

It was our Sunday afternoon show at The Star of Kings yesterday and the show got off to a cracking start with Tino Giaccotto and his breaking news that if you think the fact it’s your birthday means anything whatsoever to bar staff, you’re sadly mistaken. It was then over to Matthew Healy and some advice on how not to name your kid if you live in Romford. Jakob Tanner was next with news that he’s split up with his girlfriend. They wanted different things, mainly he wanted a relationship with her and she didn’t. Gary Manhine was after Jakob

G&B’s Dark Delights, Star of Kings, February 22nd

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

G&B’s Dark Delights, a celebration of the darker side of comedy

  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

Sunday, February 6th, Star of Kings

Yesterday’s Sunday afternoon comedy at The Star of Kings was another of our Growing Old Disgracefully shows…and did it live up to its name! Kicking things off we had the wonderful Theresa Bradstreet and the arid joys of the menopause. It was then over to Nicu Tematoru who regardless of how many people he knows doing it, he refuses to shave his legs. Next was the mellifluous marvel that is Barbara Fernandez, who sang at her ex-agent’s funeral. Turns out the security was sorely lax. It was then over to Ben Henley, winner of the evening’s Harold Shipman look-a-like competition

G&B’S Growing Old Disgracefully Show

Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings on February 6th we’ve another of our fabulous Growing Old Disgracefully shows, the gig for those who once made a mix tape and who don’t think VHS is a contractible disease. Headlining we’ve the wonderful Holly Hudson and Pam Ford and the rest of the grunts as they get up to go to the stage will be from this lot: Emily McQuade Mark Rivlin Georgia Thorp Gemma Barry Paul Scahill Barbara Fernandez Stephen Portlock Gary Manhine Jimbo Tree Bradstreet Ben Henley JJ Tomlinson Marcos Jesus Seam Anderson Stuart McLean Show starts at 3.30pm.
