A nicely full house, which was impressive considering that it was a warm sunny evening. The audience enjoyed the comedy.
A great opening act. Hailing from Canada, but now based in Britain, David has very much the ‘Steve Carrell’ about him – he sounds like him and delivers gags just like him. He had the audience laughing thoughout his act. It shouldn’t be long before he is a regular headline act.
I really like this act. It needs a bit of tweaking here and there – which for a new act should be expected. Yet, he act has so much potential. Wilson lives in the ‘rough’ part of Crystal Palace, south London, and as a result has a fantastic London accent. Growing up in a multi-ethnic community, he has absorbed all the various accents and is able to repeat them exactly: Nigerian; Scottish, Caribbean, etc. He also does a small bit about his travels in India and the comparison of using car horns in India and Britain. Very good observational material and an act with a lot of potential
Karl did a short 4 minute act. He is the brother of local lad Paul Adams, who has performed here several times recently. Karl’s act was unusual and had sections of the audience almost collapsing with laughter. He came onto the stage and proceeded to act like a comedian who had completely forgotten his lines and didn’t know his jokes. Instead of walking straight off stage, he proceeded to tell people how much his day had been rotten and to top it all he had just walked on stage and completely forgotten his act. Yes, bizarre, but very funny.
Always worth watching Jonny’s section where he shows his tattoos and getting people to guess whether the people represented in the tattoos are alive or dead.
