Comedy Clubs / Live Entertainment Reviews
Newest Review: ... a power cut fifteen minutes before the show was due to start, but we finally sat down at 8.15 and the show started more or less straight away. The comedy was mainly observational which is definitely my cup of tea and the show went on until 10.40 with a fifteen minute interval. Alan made plenty of references to the 80's where the pubs were full of smoke and closed at 11 o'clock sharp. Also when people only had one phone in the house where it lived in the hall on a telephone table complete with padded seat and a cupboard for the phone books. Obviously for any of you reading this who are under the age of about thirty this won't mean muc... more

Last night we went to see Alan Davies who was doing live stand up comedy at Lichfield Garrick as part of the Lichfield Festival which is running from 4-14 July. This was his first stand up for over 10 years as he has been concentrating on his TV career. When I first saw the line up for the Festival and saw that Alan Davies was performing I rang the booking office on the day they were released and bought two tickets as I am a great fan. There were a few hiccups at the actual theatre, they had ran out of bitter in the upstairs bar and only sold Guiness in cans in the lower bar. There was also a power cut fifteen minutes before the show was due to start, but ... Read the complete review

Twelve 25-30 year old friends, in a mixed group attended Jongleurs, Bristol, to celebrate my 25th birthday. From the minute we arrived we were on countdown with frequent reminders to drink as much as we could "Get your drinks before the show..10 minutes left, five minutes, two".Constant calls to get enough drink to last you the first half meant most people guzzling four pint pitchers at a time!The atmosphere was of huge groups getting extremely drunk, rather than having a drink while enjoying the comedy, then being expected to dance in a very confined space. This level of drink resulted in myself being punched in the face and two male friends being assulted, unprovoked. I would never reccommend Jongleurs, will not be returning and am saddened by my birthday ending in injury due to a money hungry company.

My future Brother in Law had his stag do at Jongleurs in Leeds last night. Gotta say that I do not think it was worth the £18.50 we paid each for the tickets. The best act of the night was the warm up guy who did all the inbetween introductions etc. The way their staff patrol the floor chastising people for minor indescretions is bordering on fascist. I had got my mobile phone on vibrate (so that it did not cause a nuisance during the show) so that if there was any kind of emergency at home I would at least get to know about it. During the second act I received a text from my partner telling me that one of our 3 year old twin daughters was ... Read the complete review

Jongleurs have taken what used to be the Mash & Air restaurant (apparently a favourite of Posh and Becks) on the corner of Canal Street / Chorlton Street in the heart of the Village and spent loads of money turning it into a comedy club. We went on a recent Saturday night (admittedly with free tickets - Thanks Toby! - as show is usually £12) to see what it was like. This was my first time in a comedy club. Starting off in the Bar Risa on the lower floor, we were impressed that most drinks were 2 for the price of 1 - apparently this is most nights! 8pm drew near and we were hearded upstairs to the comedy club itself -nicely laid out with a ...
