A full house saw some fantastic comedy tonight, all at different ends of the crazy comedy spectrum.

First 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.

In the middle section we had two short 'interesting' acts: The Mary Poppins Experience and Lloydy, the Illegal Street Trader.

The Mary 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 worth seeing.

The 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 stolen goods

Compere for the evening was the ever wonderful Al Pitcher.

Finally, 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.
