Funny As Muck (Merseyside Uncut Comedy Kollective)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

Six stand-up comedians and thirty-odd slightly rain-drenched people shuffle into the back room of Bannermans pub, ostensibly for some comedy, but mostly just to get out of the rain. Opening with a magician in this situation is probably a wise idea – particularly one as good as David Alnwick. Following it with a completely misjudged and poorly delivered set from Ben Blazer? Not so much. The following three acts scramble to salvage something from the mess, and succeed for the most – Jonathan Paylor’s insightful set on class and sexuality is particularly brilliant. But the damage has already been done. There is, however, a varying lineup and you might well get a slightly more palatable one. As seen? It needed trimming…

Bannermans, 4 – 27 Aug, 3.00pm (4.00pm), free, fpp n/a.
