Previous Show - 14th March 2006 - Oxfam / Fairtrade Charity Fundraising Night

Brilliant night - packed out. Special thanks go to all the comedians who performed for free, so that all the money raised on the door could go to Oxfam and Fairtrade campaigns

Karen Bayley opened. She was excellent. She warmed the audience up perfactly

In the middle were two acts, Johnny Sorrow and Craig Deeley.

Johnny Sorrow comes from West Bromwich in the Black Country and talks with a strong Black Country accent. He plays this character who is very manic who has failed in all the Working Mens clubs of the Black Country and is determined to make it big "Johnny is on his way back! Johnny is on his way back! Johnny is on his way back!" is his catch phase whenever he gets laugh. I personally enjoyed him - there's something of the Vic Reeves in his character. So you either get the character and find it hilarious, OR you don't

Craig Deeley has come on a treat. He did 20 minutes and it was solid. Quality gags from start to finish

Andy White headlined - excellent. He audeince were rolling on the floor from start to finish

Barbara Nice - I'm never quite sure how she does it but she has the audience in the palm of her hand from the start. She had them singing pop sings, playing 'past the parcel', got them hyper-excited about a raffle where the prizes were tat from Kings Heath High Street (she had one member of the audience modelling a bag of dubious fashion quality and who then wouldn't hand it over to the prize winner ) - give Barbara her own TV show, I say!
