Wednesday 29th April - Back by other means!
Obviously these have been unprecedented times for all of us these past few weeks and those of us who were working in the world of live comedy have of course had our lives turned upside down. Clubs are particularly badly affected - they rely on being open to sell tickets and drinks, and operate in a way which totally goes against the concept of social distancing. It is going to be very hard to reopen under the so-called 'new normal' expectations.

However, ever-innovative and optimistic, comedians, promoters and comedy clubs have been experimenting with ways of getting comedy to people directly through online means, much like the way TV and radio have had to adapt, in what is now an existential fight for financial survival. Some may thrive and survive but many may not. Those that do nothing will not.

Anyway, The Stand Comedy Club is doing its best to provide some light relief in these sobering times by recording and uploading free online content. Their next 'Saturday Night Live at The Stand' will be shown on Saturday 2nd May from 8:30pm. And yours truly has recorded some one liners which may be used in the show... Enjoy!
