Viv Ellis reviews last week's show and what's coming up....
If you want something more than a night out at the local, Bearcat Comedy at the Viaduct on Uxbridge Rd in Hanwell is as good a way of spending a Friday night without breaking the bank that I can think of.
This last Friday I especially liked Nathan Cassidy, who reckons he narrowly lost out to Jason Orange for a place in Take That, but who made the crowd laugh with routines on pop tribute acts (he looks a bit like Marc Almond) & Britain’s Got Talent.
And Brennan Reece, clearly just a beginner but was very engaging, dealt brilliantly with the audience. Definitely one to watch.
Meanwhile April Bearcat draws to a close with a Beautiful mix of Comic styles from a varied cacophany of ethnic backgrounds including Werewolf...!
Special Guest ROGER MONKHOUSE has been described thus ...
"his laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind" The Guardian
"unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air" Chortle
"packs in more observations on the human condition in a twenty minute set than a whole lecture on Jean-Paul Sartre" Venue Magazine
"Highly regarded by his peers on the circuit - he's shaven-headed, topical, good, and nothing to do with Bob" Evening Standard
ROGER MONKHOUSE - in other words (as Tony the Tiger would say) He's Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat! - but what does he look like..? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aHtzZcH4pU
