Previous Show - 22nd September 2015

Brilliant show. In fact it was so brilliant, people will be talking about it for a long, long time. It was also very full.

Nick Page

A fantastic act who normally headlines shows. So it was a real treat to have him opening. Nick is a great wordsmith who could give Stephen Fry a run for his money. He does not do the conventional comedy routine of having a bit of banter with the audience, he tells us straight away he is not interested in what members of the audience do as a job. Instead he is here to talk about himself and get paid for it. Further he is here to tell us what a disaster of a life he has had, which he can prove in numbers: 19 jobs all of which he was marched off the premises; 3 failed marriages; 9 times being the best man, but never asked to be the godfather of any children…and so on.

He did 30 minutes and the audience were demanding an encore and he was the opening act!

Houssem Rhaiem

A new act, who made the audience laugh throughout his ten minutes.

Athena Kugblenu

Excellent act who is very cutting edge. She is mixed-race: half Ghanaian, half Indian, so she is able to deal with racism from two perspectives and she does it brilliantly. Very good section on how life would be for a ‘black’ James Bond – the local police constantly stopping and searching him, etc.

Pete Dobbing

A great compere. He interacted with the audience wonderfully. Indeed there is something of the 1970s BBC ‘Play Away’ team about him that made the audience instantly relax in his presence

Russell Hicks

Star of the evening and he didn’t disappoint. He was advertised as having “no two shows alike” and I am confident people will talk about this performance for a long time. It was both great comedy and great theatre. His performance of 47 minutes included: crawling along the floor and pleading with a couple not to leave; using a member of the audience as an on-stage decoy, while he crawled around the back of the audience to catch a heckler off-guard; getting the audience to start a conga on-stage….and finally persuading the audience to end the show unconventionally with them leaving the room, whilst he stayed on-stage.

Pure genius
