Last night saw the monthly outing for comedy and music open mic at Isaac's in Glossop. With 9 acts signed up it was a real whirlwind of variety from local talent plus visitors from New Mills, Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds.
Some of the highlights included Tom Short re-enacting famous film genres slapstick-style selected at random by the sort of turning wheel usually found at village fetes, some sharp observational comic material from Ciaran Mullins opening proceedings and Ellie Pollard's song about an awkward family dinner. All acts, however, kept the energy high and the audience enjoying themselves.
As usual, I opened each half with a song. One of which features in my latest Youtube series, Parodies from the Peak. For a tune about terrible hotels click here.
As ever, the next show will be on the first Wednesday of next month, November 6th. Sign up starts now if you'd like 5 minutes / 2 songs.
