Oh dear. The comedy was great, but the audience numbers were really low.
Excellent. I had one punter say to me afterwards “I’ve never laughed so much in years”. Steve’s material is top notch and he is not just resting on his laurels. His 30 minute set included new material on Donald Trump. Great.
Nice laid back act.
A good five minutes of material from local lad, Paul Adams
Revelation of the night. I just didn’t know what to expect from Wizzy, but he just took the roof off. He is severely blind and his material just hit his disability straight on the head. Sometimes, with disabled comedians, the audience laugh out of politeness, but his material was excellent. For example, the problems of walking home at night as a blind person, when the wheelie bins have been put out for collection.
Contary to what the above photo shows, Harry does have a face. He went on after Wizzy who had just ripped the roof off. So it was going to be a difficult job following that. However Harry is clearly a strong act – hailing from Liverpool, his ten minutes centred on a tale of catching a bus home one night and some of the characters on it. Good material.
With only 20 people in the audience, this was going to be a tough gig as a compere. Yet, Rik managed it really well. He is confident, has really good material to dip into and bantered with the audience well. A really good comic that has headline quality material.
