Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity

I’ve wanted to do a playlist on the theme of Women’s rights and solidarity for a while, and honestly it’s a travesty that I’m only now just getting it. But while we’re seeing at best naïve useless advice and at worst victim blaming bootlicking from the police and their sympathizers in the aftermath of theContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity”

Thank you for coming to our first live show back after lockdown!

Contributed by Jonny Collins Well, we did it.

Plagued with technical hiccups, performance anxiety and…well…the plague, I’d be lyingContinue reading “Thank you for coming to our first live show back after lockdown!”

“If EVERYONE says putting musicals in your show is a bad idea… make your own mind up.” | Tony Basnett talks Trapdoor, 2000 Trees and roadtrip tunes

How did you get into comedy? I loved comedy when I was growing up, I got in trouble staying up watching stand up repeatedly. A friend of mine told me I should try it and I was dreadful, I’ll be honest, I think he only did it to prove I wasn’t as funny as IContinue reading ““If EVERYONE says putting musicals in your show is a bad idea… make your own mind up.” | Tony Basnett talks Trapdoor, 2000 Trees and roadtrip tunes”

“My first memory is of comedy.” | Umby Winters on sharks, kittens and ten years (sort of) of comedy

How did you get into comedy? My first memory is of comedy. When I was only a couple years old, my Dad would lie on the floor of our flat in North Shields and watch whatever was on that time of night.
