Brockley Central discount - Happy Mondays

Happy Mondays is the regular comedy night at the Amersham Arms, New Cross. We saw Richard Herring perform there a while back and think it makes a great venue - you can read the review here.

Organiser Jon has been in touch to offer BC readers a discount on the upcoming gigs:

Just wanted to let you know that the Happy Mondays comedy night will be starting up again at the Amersham Arms on Monday 4th October, and then every two weeks after that. Here are the headliners for the first 4 shows;

OCTOBER 4th - Alex Zane (Rude Tube, Popworld, Xfm)
OCTOBER 18th - Milton Jones (Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow, Mock the Week, Radio 4)
NOVEMBER 1st - Jack Whitehall (Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 cats, Big Brother)
NOVEMBER 15th - Richard Herring (BBC 6 Music, Fist of Fun)

All hosted by resident MC Holly Walsh (8 out of 10 cats, Mock the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks)

Tickets are £6, but on October 4th if Brockley Central readers say "Brockley Nick Told me I could come for a fiver", then they can come in for £5!

£5 to see Richard Herring - bargain! Tickets will sell out for that one really quickly.

It's throw, anon. Throw!!

Isn't Jack Whitehall that youngster who thinks shouting, staring and wacky hair are acceptable substitutes for comedy and timing?

That's the one

Can you pre-book tickets or is it done on the night on the door?

Ugh, I can't stand Jack Whitehall. He's the personification of Brockley children.

From Wikipedia on Jack Whitehall:

"Whitehall was born in Westminster, London,[1] to actress Hilary Amanda Jane (née Isbister) and Michael John Whitehall. His father was an agent for Judi Dench, Colin Firth and Richard Griffiths, and wrote the memoir, Shark-Infested Waters. Whitehall has a sister, Molly Louisa (born 1989) and a brother, Barnaby William (born 1992).[1] He attended The Tower House School in London - where he was a fellow pupil with a future star Robert Pattinson. He then went on to attend Marlborough College, an independent school in Wiltshire. Whitehall took a gap year where he decided to pursue a career in stand up comedy. He briefly attended the University of Manchester to study History of Art, residing in the Owens Park Tower.[2]"

Yes, just like your average Brockley child. Do shush...

Yes, so born to an upper middle class family in London...

Have you actually been to Brockley, Anonymous?

Brockley Nick said...

You either don't know much about class in Britain or you don't know much about Brockley, if you think that his story is representative of the average child in this area.

missed the point said...

Ah, I thought anon@11.28 was saying that Jack Whitehall behaves like Brockley children are alleged to behave by some on here - shouting etc.

Never heard of him myself, but I don't like shouty comedians generally.

Brockley Nick said...

No he's (for it is a he, as sure as eggs is eggs) saying the place is overrun with dreadful middle class types.

Ed (comedy snob) said...

You think he might be good as he is so confident but then he shouts and pulls faces and before you know it it has ended without a single snigger. Still Michael MacIntyre is apparently the nation's favourite so I think Jack will go a long way.

Ah,Micheal Macintyre,now Jon Culshaw has him off to a tee.

Michael McIntyre is the new Bill Hicks-you heard it hear first folks!

Give it 5 years and it will be Michael who?

drakefell debaser said...

If we buy tickets in advance, which is probably wise for some events, will they give us a refund on the door when we tell them Brockley Nick said we could come for a fiver?
