house saw some fantastic comedy tonight, all at different
ends of the crazy comedy spectrum.
act of the night was Howard
Read. What a brilliant act....see him before he
becomes massive. A totally off-the-wall act, his song "We're
from Kings Heath" had me in stitches and I'm still giggling
about it today. Definately my personal favourate act of the
night. On the photos, I found it impossible to catch his face,
since he moved around so quickly.
middle section we had two short 'interesting' acts: The
Mary Poppins Experience and Lloydy,
the Illegal Street Trader.
Poppins Experience was definatively an interesting idea and
well worth seeing. A Mary Poppins character lip-syncs to sound-bites
from the Disney Classic......to reveal an alterntive Mary.
Maybe a touch too clever a concept for the average audience,
but definately an act that will be around for a while....and
other act in the middle, Lloydy - the Illegal Street Trader.
An excellent act based around the character you down in the
Eastend of London....a loud mouthed street trader selling
and his Squosh racket guitar
A packed house on the night
for the evening was the ever wonderful
we come to the heradline act of the night, Pierre
Hollins. A perfect end for a drunken night. A relaxed,
guitar based act. Pierre deserved his encore and treated the
audience to his squosh racket guitar.
