Famous First Words at The Gunners

Another Monday at The Gunners and there was a solid night of comedy to be had, plus an unusual poetic ending. Like Hilarity in Shoes, Famous First Words has an informal vibe about it with an audience largely made up of acts plus a scattering of real audience.

All three organisers: James Harris, Nick Purves and myself did spots with Nick holding down MC duties for the night. Revisiting Craft Fair for the first time in ages went down well and I kept it to one song simply to accommodate the ever expanding bills we're getting.

Elsewhere, Sheraz Yousaf gave us another eight minutes from his forthcoming show about manliness, Dyland Dodds (pictured) mulled on life's troubles and Belle Busby talked about being simultaneously agoraphobic and claustrophobic. 

The night was unexpected rounded off by a poet taking all his clothes off and talking about how the British have no genitals. Certainly a first for the night.
