Hello Boys and Girls!
It was with great excitement that I went along to the Longitude Comedy Night at the Century Club on Monday 16th April. Not only is the venue perfectly located, but the stage was perfect for what was on offer: an intimate evening sitting on cushions, relaxing to poetry, comedy and music….bliss!
Needless to say, you can trust Latitude for choosing only the most talented of folk to perform, and the night did not disappoint. To kick off proceedings, poet and compere Ross Sutherland hilariously declared his undying love for audience member Reuben by tweaking an already prepared poem in his notebook.When it turned out he had made up the entire text and that his notebook was in fact blank, cue gasps of amazement at his incredible talent.
He was followed by the fantastically talented Sabrina Mahfouz who brought to the stage a preview of her upcoming show at the Bush Theatre, whilst re-telling us a fictional story from her show regarding human nature in the eyes of a former stripper. Three words: gripping, entertaining and thrilling.
Next up were Cardinal Burns, and what an entrance they made. The fact that E4 have commissioned a sketch show from the group that will be aired in May is a testament to their incredible comedic talent. They are just naturally funny people and had the audience in stitches.
Finally to finish things off, Sissy & The Blisters rocked the house out.
A great evening from Latitude!
