Lusty Low-Life at The Tap

Been an age since I’ve had the pleasure of a (no, not that!) pint of mango cider. The taste of rotten apples is by far superior to the taste of whatever was on your mind (yes, I’m well aware of the quality of my readership, thankyou!)! But it’s been well worth the wait, as I’m…

A Second Referendum

Grunts and Glurks at The Tap

And yet another exciting, ripple-inducing comedy evening, hosted by our emcee, PJ! PJ’s on a bit of a roll already, telling rip-roaring jokes about Europe, pensions and Brownies. Pretty sure that there’s a connection – somewhere – between this trio, but I’m a trifle distracted by the contortions of our emcee’s lips. Somehow the dipped-upper…

Post-Humously Anonymous

Anon. A wise choice of name for a teacher. Especially for a teacher who, in his spare time (what spare time?), parades around pretending to be a comedian. A name that reeks of issues of disassociation with his true vocation as role-model for the young, as ‘surrogate parent’ for our nation of fatherless boys. Further…

Feast of the Feline

On entry to The Tap, I find my gaze drawn towards a long-lashed beauty, perched at a high table on a bar stool, who presents an arresting site. I pause. I stare. I stare some more. Is it rude to stare so directly? To let one’s attention be frozen by one so sleek, smooth and…

Sudbury’s Comedian of the Day

Bill. Bill the newbie comedian. Fresh talent to take the stage.   Bill Newbie And I, Jay Cool, blogger extraordinaire, am here at The Brewery Tap to enjoy a slice of the action. But, first things first! A pint of mango cider, please! With mangoes in hand, I proceed. Fresh mangos comforting each other at…

Angel of the North at Leestock?

Neil Barber, aliases Prince Harry & Kenny Everett Blunt scissors and flat notes. Turns out our Neil Barber, like his doppelganger Prince Harry, is not so sharp after all. “You got the brains; I get the celebrity!” (image labelled as Creative Commons Licensed from ¬†http://www.theurbangent.com/2011/04/prince-william-of-wales.html)   Barber’s notes are so flat that he hates musicians…

Lazy (or Crazy?) Town Star Visits Leestock

  Empty. An empty vessel in a field of festive folk. An empty tent with a no-brain jester’s hat sitting on its laurels, awaiting an audience. Time for action. Time for a filler, and I, Jay Cool, blogger extraordinaire, have just the wig for the job. I take off with my wig, and work the…

The Cool Westgate Duet

He may well have been booted off Britain’s Got Talent by the great man himself (and no I’m not referring to our pal Simon Cowell – the great man is David Walliams, Jay Cool’s role model), but, personally speaking, I confess to having a bit of a soft spot for ‘our’ Martin. Martin Westgate at…
