I love my graduates coming along to support my latest comedy course fledglings in our New Act Night show. Former New Act Night and Comic Boom MC my fast rising graduate Romesh Ranganathan turned-up last night with his amazing Mum. She was a total star in Rom's brilliant BBC series "Asian Provocateur." We swapped catch phrases from the show and Rom introduced me to his beloved Christmas jumper (pictured). It lights up and flashes too...(the jumper).
I was so proud as my Autumn 2015 stand-up comedy course fledglings took to the stage last night and every single one of them stormed. The room was actually shaking with applause from our super lovely supportive audience who just went for it, from the moment our fantastic MC Angela Barnes stepped on stage.
It's not that long ago Angela was one of my comedy course fledglings making her stand-up debut in my New Act Night show at Komedia Brighton. Since then she's won awards, appeared on television and she's about to record her own radio series.
Watching my lovely newbies taking their first steps in stand-up I couldn't help but wonder which ones will follow in Angela or Romesh's footsteps. And be back at Komedia one day to MC my New Act Night show.
