A full house
saw a great night of entertainment with the Midlands
Heat of the BBC New Comedy Awards..... Mays thanks
to a great audience. The BBC and Comedians were appreciative
of your support and making this easily the best heat so far.
battled it out, with Geoff Whiting hosting. Not enough room
to name all the comics, but just to mention the highlights:
Denyer started the night off. I warned him
that the audience are very quiet at the start, but he rose to
the occasion and got them laughing straight away.

Hunter had excellent well thought out material.
He definately going to be a regular at the Glee Club and Jongleurs
in the near future.
taken in my back garden.
kicked some ass! Karen is like the pounding of a Black Country
Steel Press. The gags come constantly and with a punch. She
is heading straight to the final in Edinburgh!
Alek Maxwell. This
guy was excellent. He had the confidence and timing of a pro.
I would definately like to see him do twenty minutes
our host. Unknown to the audience, Geoff was in agony throughout
the show having twisted his back earlier in the day
Garbett. Dean definately has the cruel Brummie
wit. The audience were rolling on the floor laughing as he left
no taboo subject untouched.
Hewitt. If Scott Denyer thought he dug some
depths, Simon by-passed him by a mile. He warned me he had a
dark sense of humour - wow! he has!
