Previous Show - 28th January 2003

A full house saw a great night of comedy and one act whom I predict is going to be mega-big.

First act was Stefano Paolini. He got the audience laughing straight away with his impression of an ice-cream van in Brixton and the laughing didn't stop there. A neatly packaged 20 minutes of non-stop impersonation and gags. Including impressions of Italian TV adverts

Headline act Martin Davis was having such a great time, we couldn't get him off the stage - 50minutes he did, plus an encore

Second act of the evening was a short set from Mancunian Geoff Taylor. A former Milky Bar kid, he set was simply outragiously funny. To us soft southerners weren't whether to laugh out loud or be shocked at his subject matter. - "this Iraq war sounds a great idea! 150,000 US soldiers to kick Saddam Husseins arse, so that I can have cheaper petrol for my car. Brilliant!". One half of the audience just looked at each other shocked, the other half pissed themselves laughing

Act of the night was Helen Kane as Marilyn Monroe. She absolutely stormed it. She got the Marilyn Monroe impersonation just perfect and had the men in the audience in the palm of her hand. The audience were rolling about the floor as she persuaded one man from the audience to be Elton John, whilst she sang Marilyn's own version of 'Candle in the Wind'. True brilliance. This act is going to be massive and this is only the second time she has done this act in a comedy club - remember you saw her here first.
