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!!
