What a great
show, showing the full range of British comedy - from comic
songs to straight stand up to bizarre comedy.
First act was An Audience
With Peter. Songs and banter, Peter definately showed
why he is being compared to Kenneth Williams. Non-stop movement,
meant this blurred photo was the best I could come up with.
Second part of the middle section was Bullett
& Gunn. They have only done 6 gigs, but they
were brilliant. Their acts consists of them showing the 4 different
ways to create a comedy song. The highlight was them showing
how to create comic effect from combining the lyrics of one
song to the tune of another. Or in this case combining the tune
of "Hark the Herald Angel" to "Kill the Police"
by Niggers With Attitude. They made the audience stand and handed
out song sheets. So you had the surreal image of the audience
standing singing a Christimas Carol with the words "kill
the police, O kill the police" - top material
Headline of the night was the Bastard
Son of Tommy Cooper. In the above photo he is hammering
a 6 inch nail up his nose....and this is no trick! One member
of the audience fainted and had to be carried out when he did
his sword swallowing trick. There was also a mass walk of members
of the audience who couldn't stomach any more!
In the middle we had a short section from Brummie Andy
White who was trying out new material. The new material
was superb, showing why he is now regular headline material.
Compere was Glaswegian Charlie
