BrightSparks Comedy Scream!

February 19, 2007

If you made it down to our BrightSparks Comedy Gig last Friday, well done-you did the right thing. If not, tut, tut, you only have yourselves to blame-but we’re sure you must have had an excellent excuse.

In the end we sold out. 85plus people (they were a bugger to count) took the Guildhall prisioner and showed no mercy in their descending on the buffet. They also laughed, applauded and cheered with gusto throughout the evening. Highlights have got to include the excellent compering of Nick King and Rob Gee, the bizaare genius of the ‘I killed a snake’ song, by Grant Paton, Steffi Pointons ‘Poppy’ and of course Ralf Horris..but of course there was SO much MORE…
