TWO of the most enjoyable – in fact, cathartic – evenings I’ve spent in the last few months were in the heart of Bethnal Green.
It’s not just that the stand-ups are entirely unconstrained by woeful wokery, but the audience is pretty game for a laugh too. And it is a club-like atmosphere – incredibly friendly. If you don’t see somebody you already know, the chances are you’ll find yourself chatting to like-minded dissidents and rebels and making new friends!
Comedy Unleashed is the brainchild of the quite fabulous Andy Shaw – otherwise known as The Andy Bore @AndyShaw1 – and Andrew Doyle, the host of Free Speech Nation on GB News and inventor of the spoof queen of woke character Titania McGrath.
The acts they draw in are invariably great and the ‘comperes’, or hosts, are worth the Tube ride on their own (and only a short walk from there). If you want to strengthen your immunity to the daily abuse of political correctness, virtue-signalling and bullying our cancel culture routinely subjects us to, then this is the booster you need.
The good news is that they have an event coming up next week – Wednesday March 30 at 7.30 pm. It’ll be featuring (‘Before I’m Deleted Again’) Dominic Frisby and The Gilets Jaunes Band.
The night will include all the old favourites – I Am A White Man and I’m Sorry, 17 Million Eff-Offs, and I’m Gonna Marry Gary – plus future classics The Ofcom Song and Gammon and Proud. We will celebrate the end of times and the downfall of civilisation through the medium of comic songs.
