Room above a pub...

Comedy was never created to be performed in an auditorium, or even in its own special club. No, the pub is humour’s natural home, where comedy feels most comfortable. For the main point of going to the pub is to cut loose, get lashed and have a few laughs with your mates anyway (especially if that pub is a Proper Boozer, like what the White Hart is). An altogether different brand of amusement, room-above-a-pub-comedy can sometimes be hit or miss, many of the laughs coming from the sheer nervous tension in the room. We can say it’s real. But no worries tonight because Josie Long will be upstairs and, y’know, she’s definitely very funny. We hear that this night is run more like a party than a business - a big two fingers up to Leicester Square – which is good news because, after all, you really shouldn’t put a price on laughter. Or, if you absolutely must, it definitely shouldn’t be more than a fiver…
