Previous Show - 9th June 2015

A full house and great comedy.

Ahir Shah

A very interesting act. He did material from his forthcoming Edinburgh Show. His style of comedy is similar to Richard Herring – very intellectual. Indeed, at the end of his performance he joked that we had seen either a great comedy act or a great university lecture.

His material is very political and best described as ‘geeky’ left wing. He even joked that he saw Ed Miliband as ‘normal’.

As a ‘work in progress’ for Edinburgh, it clearly needs tweaking, but it has to be appreciated that political comedy is a difficult genre, since it is a very fine line between an unfunny lecture and uninformed cliché political jabs at the usual targets.

Ahir is certainly an act to keep an eye out for in the future.

Alexis Wieroniey

An American who has lived in Britain 10 years and now has British citizenship.  Witty observations about the differences between English and Americans.

Paul Adams

Local lad Paul did 3 minutes of new gags and they were good gags – indeed I was re-telling one of his gags today. Paul is a bit of an enigma: he appears to lack stage confidence, but his gags always get the audience laughing out loud.

Patrick Casey

Patrick is relatively new to the comedy circuit, but based on his stage presense and quality of his jokes, you would think he had been performing for years. His gags about life in his quiet Wessex village are top notch

Donald Mack

I really liked Donald's performance last night. He engaged with the audience well and one of his chats with one of the audience members about their job as a shoe recycler, had me howling.

Danny Buckler

An excellent performance from Danny – half stand up and half magic. He was a real ball of energy, that had the audience one moment howling with laugher and the next moment thinking “how did he do that?” Worth seeing.
