A few weeks back on a Monday evening, Jordan and I graced our presence (hehe) at London's best stand up comedy night 'Laughing boy', an event that takes place at the Brick House, hosted by the extremely funny and Charming Jamie Howard.
Laughing boy has been established over the years as London's finest urban stand up comedy night, showcasing upcoming and established talents from the music industry to the comedy circuit.
Having had acts such as Jessie J and Ed Sheeran peforming in its small but chique venue, you are surely guaranteed a night of pure entertainment and laughter- also a great place to bump into or meet rising talents and dance the night away to live music.
That evening we were lucky enough to witness acts and music from Josh Mackenzie, better known as Labrinth's older brother, non the less, a man of many talents himself. He is also recognized as the UK's finest drummer, working alongside household names such as Lily Allen, Tini Tempah and Wretch 32,- By golly gosh, Josh (aka Mcknasty, as we discovered!) is a very established musician.
We managed to grab a sneaky interview with him after his fabulous performance, where he let us into the secrets of his mysterious backpack, the low down on Labrinth and his hidden talents!
Josh was absolutley lovely and a real pleasure to talk too, the interview itself stemmed half the laughs of the night!
Comedians that performed on the night were Tom Deacon, one of the hottest, young stand-ups on the circuit today, who had us all in fits. He was absolutley hilarious and I'm certain he is going to be massive, he's already hosting his own show on BBC Radio 1, which broadcasts every sunday from 7-9pm...check it out!
Another comedian who performed was Kay Kurd, very new to the comedy scene, but non the less a witty character whose jokes about being from a Kurdish background made the crowd giggle.
Funny enough, both Jordan and I already knew him from the Kiss 100 Chosen one presenting competition in 2010, as we had all reached the finals together! We also managed to grab an interview with him after his performance, where we all had an "accent off"- talking in our American , Scottish, Irish and Australian accents!
The night however, would not have been the same without Jamie Howard, whose hosting skills kept the crowd thoroughly entertained through his extremely dry humor and painfully sarcastic jokes.
All I can say is that it's a shame the event doesn't take place every Monday, as more frequented nights at the laughing boy, would be sure to lift the spirits of those many dull, solemn faces that dread the full working week ahead!
