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”

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””

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.
