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”

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””

An interview with Alex Berlulis-Fernandes

Note – lots of extremely sensitive topics are discussed below. So, hi! How did you get started in comedy? Who are you? What’s going on? I started doing stand-up in 2019. I’d been working on a book about my mental health issues and the editor I was working with said “I can see this beingContinue reading “An interview with Alex Berlulis-Fernandes”

Factually Inaccurate #5: Sharlin Jahan, Jacob Hatton and Tom Crowley

This month’s review is going to be a slightly strange one, for two main reasons: one, we have no photos of the performances, [1], and two, I am suffering from some form of flu, which means that my recollections from the night might take the form of some crazed fever dream. This was our firstContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #5: Sharlin Jahan, Jacob Hatton and Tom Crowley”

Tom Crowley interview: “All human beings want to be understood and appreciated”

We are super excited to be having Tom Crowley perform at our show on Monday, so here’s a sneak preview of the interview we did with him for the fanzine. Can I call it a sneak preview when I’m publishing it in its entirety here? I’m unsure, but i hope you enjoy reading nonetheless. TicketsContinue reading “Tom Crowley interview: “All human beings want to be understood and appreciated””

Factually Inaccurate #4: Elizabeth Smyth, Richard Vranch, Eleanor Morton and Joz Norris

We did it! We came back for another show! With your MC and host struggling a bit with his brain and on only 3 hours’ sleep, and the co-producer battling a migraine, this could have been a comedy disaster. Instead it was our best show yet, thanks to brilliant guests with typically fun and variedContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #4: Elizabeth Smyth, Richard Vranch, Eleanor Morton and Joz Norris”

Foolishness, ferrets and failure: An interview with Joz Norris

Ahead of his performance at our show this coming Monday, Joz Norris very kindly wrote lots of interesting things for us in an interview. It’ll appear in issue #3 of our fanzine, but in the interests of curtain-raising, here it is in full “online”. Why not print it out and carry it around with you?Continue reading “Foolishness, ferrets and failure: An interview with Joz Norris”

Factually Inaccurate #3: Thom Tuck, Jenan Younis, Sharlin Jahan, Drew Stearne, and Michael Cumes

Another sell-out show! But you know what they say, never work with children, animals, or projectors. And our deepest apologies to Michael Cumes, who opened up for us with a wonderful set about being a creepy twin (I might be paraphrasing slightly). Due to a miscommunication between myself and Maddi, the latter had no ideaContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #3: Thom Tuck, Jenan Younis, Sharlin Jahan, Drew Stearne, and Michael Cumes”

Factually Inaccurate #2: Yuriko Kotani, Luke Rollason, MJ Hibbett, Vix Leyton, and Kate Martin

I don’t know what the stand-up comedy equivalent of “that different second album” is, but I went through all the usual anxieties before Factually Inaccurate #2. Will anyone turn up now we’re no longer new? Is it possible to maintain the lovely warmth and inclusivity of show #1 with an entirely new audience? Should weContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #2: Yuriko Kotani, Luke Rollason, MJ Hibbett, Vix Leyton, and Kate Martin”

Factually Inaccurate #1: Felix Trench, Charlie Vero-Martin, and more!

I am writing this a few weeks after the event, so memory has been fogged by the passage of time and also BOOZE. Apologies for any factual inaccuracies contained herein, even though our name also acts as a general disclaimer. The set-up Does anyone truly know how a projector works? I have been outsourcing programmingContinue reading “Factually Inaccurate #1: Felix Trench, Charlie Vero-Martin, and more!”
