Thank you to everyone who came last Friday. Those who couldn’t make it missed a treat, and those who did will be talking about it for some time to come.
Although we started late, partly due to technical issues and partly because our MC got stuck in traffic, our wonderful punters understood and waited patiently for one of our best shows so far.
Opening was the brilliant Alasdair Beckett-King, who had us in hysterics from start to finish, comparing himself to numerous beings including a Siren and a Bond villain, never once mentioning that he could have posed for a painting of Jesus or John the Baptist.
The sassy, no-holds-barred Nicole Harris followed, whose detailed descriptions of her nether regions simultaneously scandalised and terrified the audience, with one man in the front row looking as if he wanted to leave but was physically unable to move. (Perhaps Nicole is a secret Siren, or to be classically correct, a North London Medusa the Gorgon?)
The legend that is Rich Hall then blew us all away with a superb set, starting with some coruscating observations on his homeland, lamenting at one point that Trump losing the election had robbed him of 25 minutes of material. After that he brought out his guitar and entertained us with some hilarious songs, one of which listed numerous towns and villages not far from Ickenham, proving he had ‘done his research’.
MC Meryl O’Rourke held everything together and also had the room rocking with laughter.
It was lovely to see so many of you there enjoying the show and I hope even more will turn up to the next one which is in less than two weeks time – Friday 8th July. Our headliner will be the amazing Laura Lexx, who as well as appearing on Live At the Apollo in her comedic capacity, has just had a book ‘Pivot’ published, which is getting excellent reviews.
Supporting her will be Gareth Richards and Ali Woods. Further details and ticket bookings can be found elsewhere on the website.
Keep supporting live comedy – we wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
Thank you to everyone who came to the Bunker last Thursday and enjoyed a memorable evening.
Opening was Fatiha El-Ghorri whose razor sharp observations on being a Muslim in the UK kept the punters roaring throughout her set. Next was the quirky Tom Little whose reflections on crisp flavours, among other things, made us look at everyday objects in a completely different light.
Our headliner was the brilliant Bob Mills, a comedy icon who is not afraid to say what many of us are already thinking. His trenchant comments on modern life brought gales of laughter from the appreciative audience.
Our MC was the lovely Jonathan Elston, who kept the evening rolling along in fine style.
The next Bunker night is Friday 24th June and tickets have been selling for several weeks already,
Headlining is the legendary Rich Hall. Support acts are Alasdair Beckett-King and Nicole Harris.
This is going to be something special.
Don’t miss it!
Thank you to everyone who came to the show on Thursday 5th May. You were a wonderful audience for our brilliant bunch of comedians.
First up was the hysterically funny Kelly Convey, self-confessed chav, who had us by the throat in more ways than one, followed by the hilarious Mad Ron, literally dropping bricks on stage. Our headliner was the delightful and quirky Tom Ward with his unique take on the world. The evening was held together by MC Mark Cram, who spared nobody in the front row, but they all took it in good part.
Tom Ward will be on Live At the Apollo again in a few months, so there is a chance to see him again,
What a lovely night we all had on Friday 20th May. Opening act Jon Pearson’s audience interaction and hilarious set had us in hysterics. He was followed by Arielle Souma whose direct approach regarding personal matters left us with some fresh knowledge, and one particular chap wishing he hadn’t sat in the front row. Headliner Christian Reilly’s parody songs were spot on and finished the evening in great style. Our MC was Nick Wilty who kept us entertained with some excellent anecdotes between acts.
Although audience numbers were lower than usual, the intimate atmosphere meant everyone felt included.
I hope more of you will come along to our next show, on Thursday 9 June. The wonderful Bob Mills is headlining, and support is from Fatiha El-Ghorri, who has a number of TV credits, and Tom Little. Further details can be found elsewhere on this site.
Mad Ron Spanners, who is appearing at the Bunker on Thursday 5th May, has just reached the final in the Not So New Comedian of the Year competition.
The force of nature that is John Robertson opened, with a blistering set which had him verbally abusing his surroundings and also physically rearranging the furniture (and, because he’s well-brought up, putting it back at the end). Richard Todd followed with his equally crazy but slightly gentler humour in which he literally looked at the world sideways. Headlining were the Raymond and Mr Timpkins revue who are just bonkers. They have been to the Bunker before and although we were treated to some old favourites there were some up to the minute topical jokes as well.
Our MC Keith Farnan who is also a Bunker regular had a lot of fun with the audience members, including two of my friends in the front row, who may never return.
