Joke Party.

This is a fairly new comedy night at The Wilmington Arms which falls on the first Tuesday of every month and features William Andrews, Colin Hoult, Anna Crilly, Katy Wix, Tom Bell, Ed Weeks, Sophie Black, Briget Christie, Mathew Baynton and Andrea Donovan.

The audience were a little strange and un-responsive which brought the show down a little bit. William Andrews was completely ace and got a pretty good review in TNT Magazine:

A young bloke in his twenties, saunters on to the stage and, after an exchange of pleasantries, pulls out a roll of gaffer tape.

"I'm going to use this as a metaphor for my job", he claims, wrapping the tape two of three loops around his head, "because, like my job, it's easier going on than coming off."

The audience reacts with raised eyebrows, but the comic than whips off his shirt to reaveal that his whole torso has been taped up as well. A miniature xylophone appears from stage-left and the comic begins to reel off one-liners, some whincingly corny, some clever enough to keep the audience laughing. In between each punchline, our experimental gag-man plays a brief ditty on his little xylophone. It's different.

And then, after a pause, he spits out the best line of the night: "If God truly is everywhere, then I came in his face this morning."

Colin Hoult and Briget Christie were also very, very good. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

A thought.

I find dieting easier when i've had enough sleep. I lose all will power when i'm tired. Sleep = fruit. No sleep = chocolate.
