Previous Show - 6th May 2003 - BBC New Comedy Awards

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.

Ten comedians battled it out, with Geoff Whiting hosting. Not enough room to name all the comics, but just to mention the highlights:

Scott 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.

Ian Monro

Ian Hunter had excellent well thought out material. He definately going to be a regular at the Glee Club and Jongleurs in the near future.

Karen Bayley 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

Geoff Whiting our host. Unknown to the audience, Geoff was in agony throughout the show having twisted his back earlier in the day


Dean Garbett. Dean definately has the cruel Brummie wit. The audience were rolling on the floor laughing as he left no taboo subject untouched.


Simon 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!
