Factually Inaccurate #9: Thom Tuck, Luke Rollason, Camilla Borges, Luke Beahan, Ben Lund-Conlon

Ooooooooh this was a nice show. The kind of show that reminds you why you got into being a fictional owl who puts on comedy nights in the first place. Despite being an owl, we were super happy to see a dog in the audience. Waffles sat in the front row and was impeccably behaved,Continue reading “Factually Inaccurate #9: Thom Tuck, Luke Rollason, Camilla Borges, Luke Beahan, Ben Lund-Conlon”

Factually Inaccurate #8: Isy Suttie, Sam Nicoresti, Joz Norris

[Editor’s note: sorry for the late write up. It has been an emotional time.] Crivens what a show! Comedy promotion is a thing of many moving parts, and for this one all those moving parts collided, in mid air, triumphantly. We’re getting closer each month to what the night looks like in our head: thanksContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #8: Isy Suttie, Sam Nicoresti, Joz Norris”

Factually Inaccurate #7: Bex Turner, Charlie Vero-Martin, Richard Vranch, Alex Bertulis-Fernandes and Arthur Smith

Hello! Did you miss us? Omicron knocked out our December and January shows, and it also threatened to do a number on our February return. Two days before the show, both our headliner, Isy Suttie, and our tech hero, Jamie, caught the ‘Vid. Did they catch it off each other? We will never know, andContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #7: Bex Turner, Charlie Vero-Martin, Richard Vranch, Alex Bertulis-Fernandes and Arthur Smith”

Factually Inaccurate #6: Athena Kugblenu, Monica Gaga, Suchandrika Chakrabarti, Dan Willis, and Charlie Vero-Martin

What a show! With every month I feel like we get slightly closer to what we want the night to be, which is good, given our remit is EXTREMELY WOOLLY and, like most humans and animals in society, we really have no clue what we’re doing. As host, I tried a different tack to normalContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #6: Athena Kugblenu, Monica Gaga, Suchandrika Chakrabarti, Dan Willis, and Charlie Vero-Martin”

MJ Hibbett interview: “If gags are all right for Jane Austen then they’re all right for the rest of us!”

Hi Mark! I think I’ve interviewed you in some form or other for every fanzine I’ve ever done. How does that make you feel inside? Hi James! It makes me feel cherished and appreciated, especially as it’s been more than one venture – over the years I’ve got involved with lots of first issues, firstContinue reading “MJ Hibbett interview: “If gags are all right for Jane Austen then they’re all right for the rest of us!””

Gemma Arrowsmith interview: “Sketch comedy is NOT solely the domain of Oxbridge.”

Back in the summer, we interviewed Gemma about this and that. This was of course before the news about Russell T Davies. Hi Gemma! You’re the reason we exist. How does that make you feel? I am so proud of everyone in Next Level Sketch. There are loads of sketch groups, but how many sketchContinue reading “Gemma Arrowsmith interview: “Sketch comedy is NOT solely the domain of Oxbridge.””

Charlie George interview: ‘Marry someone who’s willing to take the bins out & see the glimmer in your trash’

Hi Charlie! We love your comedy. Thanks for agreeing to perform at Factually Inaccurate On a scale of 1-10, how poorly have we explained our own remit? About a 3 I reckon. I remember Maddi leaning over a tin of olives – yes I said tin of olives! – at ACMS and saying do youContinue reading “Charlie George interview: ‘Marry someone who’s willing to take the bins out & see the glimmer in your trash’”

Sharlin Jahan interview: “It’s kind of like the audience and I are in a relationship”

You’re now in possession of my mum’s mobile number, so please use this wisely. Please don’t call her at three in the morning. I’m gonna send her dick pics, is that ok? So, how did you get started in comedy? I did the Asian dream and became somebody in business, and then I was like,Continue reading “Sharlin Jahan interview: “It’s kind of like the audience and I are in a relationship””

Eleanor Morton interview: “I tell people my thoughts under a light that shines as bright as God himself”

Hi Eleanor! On a scale of 1-10 how poorly have we explained the remit of our own night? I’d say a solid 5 – I don’t know what’s happening, but it can’t be THAT different from a standard night, can it? Can it? Can you explain what you do as though you were asked byContinue reading “Eleanor Morton interview: “I tell people my thoughts under a light that shines as bright as God himself””

Interview with Jacob Hatton: “I have never made any man laugh outside a pub”

Hello! How would you describe your comedy to a middle manager from Dunstable, should the need arise as hopefully it never will? Imaginative stand up with a dreamy twist (the dream is the bad one where you are late to an exam and also naked)  You’ve been described as hyper-absurdist, possibly by me, a fictionalContinue reading “Interview with Jacob Hatton: “I have never made any man laugh outside a pub””
