Now in its new Stoke Newington home, HiS was a belter of a night with an insane number of acts and an audience that took every seat in the room. Jack Brooks (pictured) did the MC honours and Currer Ball and Kathryn Ferns turned in great sets amongst others.
Tales of the Unexpected and West End went down well with some of the best crowd reaction of the night as far as I could tell. Possibly in part to bringing music into the proceedings rather than another talky tight five. I enjoyed every second. Afterwards, a transsexual pensioner seemed really taken with it in particular and came over for a chat so I'll definitely take that as an endorsement.
In other news, the venue for Edinburgh Festival is confirmed. Now begins the really hard work.
