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 musiciansContinue reading “Angel of the North at Leestock?”

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 theContinue reading “Lazy (or Crazy?) Town Star Visits Leestock”

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 atContinue reading “The Cool Westgate Duet”

Bloomers and Beer

  I, Jay Cool, am back and feeling chipper. Just as well, as I’m in for a treat with Aaron Chipper, first comedian of the evening. It has to be said that Aaron seems a tad insecure in his abilities to entertain. He’s introducing himself as ‘white, male and American’ and as akin to DonaldContinue reading “Bloomers and Beer”

Un-named Item in Baggage Area

I’m not lost .. But, I am late. You might not think it possible to get lost in Sudbury, but you are very much mistaken – and you are not me, Jay Cool. Only two weeks ago I, Jay Cool, got lost on my way to our Horse and Groom venue – and its onlyContinue reading “Un-named Item in Baggage Area”

Fresh & Flappy

  Unfamiliar territory. A new venue for the Comedy Club. Fresh. I, Jay Cool, Blogger Extraordinaire, am here. Feeling as young and rejuvenated as ever, I’m dressed to kill. But, somehow, I’ve got it all wrong. The punters are all wearing a uniform of grey-branded-zip-up casuals and shapeless denims – but my legs are living-it-upContinue reading “Fresh & Flappy”

Fancy Footwork

Closure. BMW Bike – a Creative Commons image from Wikimedia.org Don Mackie‘s going for it full throttle – he’s replaced his tricycle with a motorcycle and he’s revving up the audience at The Tap, whilst I … I, Jay Cool, the one and only once-was-ginger Blogger Extraordinaire, am … … very busy eyeing up theContinue reading “Fancy Footwork”

Fresh Beards

Poor wee-lost Dylan Dodds. Shame he’s left The Tap and gone of looking for the ‘rest of his car’, because in a skinny sort of way, I found him kind of cute. Kind of cute in the same way that drinking a skinny latte at The Mill Hotel is kind of cute (when the built-like-an-ox-ginger-beardedContinue reading “Fresh Beards”

Bragg’s Bootiful Brogues!

Christmas is over, New Year’s Day has passed, the mother has returned to her own abode, and it’s almost time to take the decorations down – what now? I, Jay Cool, am bored. Bored and deflated (I farted out the last of the mince pies this morning!). What now? Never fear, Jay Cool, you areContinue reading “Bragg’s Bootiful Brogues!”

Up for Grabs?

‘Seventy-three and up for grabs?’ It’s Janet Benisworth! At last a genuinely ancient comedian; not just some early forty something undersexed male, claiming to be middle-aged, trying to get the female sympathy vote. And, even better, I’ve never seen such an old specimen sporting such lustrous-dark locks. I sit up and take notice. A greatContinue reading “Up for Grabs?”
