Previous Show - 5th November 2002

With the Station pun in the middle of refurbishment, we proved the old saying that '"whatever happens, the show must go on"......and the audience helped us along.

We took advantage of the chaos in the front bar and gave away parts of the pub as competition prizes. Prior to the show, I had wanted to give away as a prize the workmens unwashed mugs,complete with teabags - but the gaffer pursuaded me it was a bad idea. So we gave away a Greek Urn (made in Taiwan) that has graced the front bars shelf for over ten years.

It was a great show. Unfortunately, Nina Conti pulled out at the last minute for a TV show, but we had TV personality Shazia Mirza instead.

Opening act for the evening was Rohan Agawalatta. I've been recreating his various jokes in the office all day, especially "How many Elvis Presley's does it take to change a light bulb"

Andy Robinson was in fantastic form. Many thanks to the comedy god for bringing the bloke from Wales to the show.

Headline act for the evening was Andy Zaltzman. This guy is a comedy genius and definately someone we want back. His material was probably the most original and thoughful on the circuit. His game of trumps using world leaders, his 5-minute joke starting with "Queen Victoria walked into a pub in Kings Heath". Genius!!!
