Gigged for injured troops.

So I was asked if I’d like to be part a comedy gig for injured troops at the army’s rehabilitation centre, I obviously jumped at the chance even changed my work commitment tools it possible.

Now as I myself spent some time at Headley Court in my army days I know how much these guys would appreciate some laughs. Unwashed running late because of the M25 traffic but when I arrived the gig was already on full swing And two acts had already been on, ink new the other acts in the bill and was delighted to be part of such a strong line up, the would have been a great gig wherever it was but the fact it was here made it all the more special to me.

It was my turn to do my set, now I’ve done army gigs before and know how dark humour goes with squadies but these guys with all they’ve been through in typical forces fashion wanted darker, I told some jokes on would only ever do on rowdy stag/hen type gigs and that lapped it up!!

After the gig I stayed back in the bar talking to some of the guys and girls, the injuries they had varied from missing limbs to a good old wrist strain and in the forces way, one guy who’s legs got blown off in an IED was ripping into someone who has sprained his wrist, then they showed me some pretty cool tricks with their new legs (at £30.000) each these things where phenomenal. But the best thing was when sitting down you could bring the pneumatic leg up to make a beer rest!!

All in all what a great gig and a top bunch of guys. And to top it all off I received a letter on behalf of the CO of Headley Court.

Comedy @ The Savile Row Café Bar 3

20130512-093509.jpg

What an amazing night was had @ The Savile Row Café Bar.

We had our second sell out gig with a packed out room. All the acts were fantastic and the audience loved each and every one of them!
I didn’t have to do any work as MC so I went into a running gag of “so this bomb disposal lark ….”

Thanks to Daniel J Kennedy, Anthony Murphy, Callum Scott, for doing a fantastic job, although they could have done new stuff they gave their solid sets and as a result I’m gonna get them back to Hull for paid middles on my Pro night.

Special mention has to go to Dave Smith a new act from Hull, doing his second ever gig and I have to say he had the “Jack Gleadow affect”

(I must explain this)

Basically when I saw Jack doing his first ever gig I knew he was going to be a top act and he totally blew away all the comics on the bill that night and we was right he is doing brilliant on the comedy circuit.

Dave was on stage and he is so natural
with super strong observations and he doesn’t hold back when it comes to personal stories from his past.

Whilst sat watching him Jed Salisbury whispered into my ear “Jack Gleadow”
I instantly knew what he meant!

Oh, that brings me on to the next bit.

Thanks to Jed for stepping in and filling for an act that couldn’t make it and thanks to Mike Morris for doing the same, Hull is quickly getting its very own little comedy circuit and every local act is ready and willing to step in at short notice and after Dave’s performance I’m sure he will be added to the panic joint message I send out to local acts when people pull out of my gigs.

Jim Bays headlined the night, and headline he did! Slipping away from his usual set list to talk to the audience making sure they had a top night, at one point he said “I don’t even need to do material I could just talk to you guys”

And he was right, what a top comedy audience we had in!!

Can’t wait to do it all again next month on the 15th of June. And if an act drops out maybe Dave can fill in!!

And we’re off!!!!

After the last two months success with Comedy @ The terrace night club in Hull im so happy to announce that it will now be a monthly gig!!

 

This is my first residency as a Host (MC), I’m also being given the reigns to book the acts!!

using my advantage of working all over the country I will be bringing the best up and coming acts as well as some fantastic well established headliners that I have had the privilege to gig along side! I personally think this is far better than just reading reviews and booking acts, plus as I gig in Hull on a regular basis I know that a Hull audience won’t just sit there and listen to rubbish, with that in mind I only intend to bring the best to my nights!!

and on that note, take a look at May’s line up!!

The planets must have aligned

Well this week my day job and night job have come together better than ever!!

Basically I asked the owner of the Company of which I Freelance with the most, if there was any work near the O2 arena as I’m going to see Louis CK on Wednesday with two comedy friends, James Beatty, (Promoter and owner of LOL Comedy) and comedy hero of mine Patrick Monohan, He only came up trumps!! I’m looking for bombs about 500 meters away from the O2!! And I can leave my vehicle on the site so I don’t even have to pay for parking!!!

Then as a bonus, the hotel I’m staying in is literally 300 meters away from a gig I am doing on Thursday night!!

If only every week as the only bomb disposal comedian was like this!!!
