I have been to the comedy club perhaps a dozen or more times over the past few years . It has always been a great night out . Very reasonably priced , with Paddy as compère being as good as some of the acts! Last Friday however ( Sept 9th), unfortunately was not enjoyable . I found the last act’s inability to move on from challenging the heckler on the front row really excruciating . It felt so uncomfortable and tantamount to bullying - with the act refusing to stop criticising the heckler, and attempting to get the audience involved in making him squirm - I had to walk out . Yea he deserved to be challenged as he was apparently rudely talking whilst the act was on - but the cone back was neither funny nor entertaining . I appreciate it was hard for Paddy or anyone else to intervene , but experienced comedians perhaps should be prepared for this to happen, and know when to stop. Also, Paddy didn’t seem to be on his best form He is usually hilarious -occasionally drawing the crowd in by chatting to 2-3 members for a few minutes each, cleverly drawing humour from their jobs, relationships, lifestyle etc. However on Friday far too long was spent focusing on one group of girls - nine of whom were particularly interesting or had occupations from which any humour could be drawn… it was more of a ‘ what are all your names, what do you all do for a living..” conversation.. I think we were all in the mood for a quick fire , quick witted repartee following the somber news about the Queen. Paddy did handle this news really well at the start of the show - perfect blend of respect and amusement , and gravitas befitting of the occasion . I would still recommend usually 5 stars ; this night was an anomaly and I’ll be back I’m sure in a few months .

Thank you for yet again another fantastic night. I enjoyed all three acts and of course I love you paddy. Myself and my friends had all had a tough week and was so in need of Friday nights laughter. Marlon was great and it saddens me That one of the audience treated him disrespectfully. Please make sure marlon is invited Back soon he’s a great young comedian. Hope to get back to see you all next month, with even more of my friends.

Go every month and love it, Paddy is a legend, sometimes a little hit and miss with the other acts, but always a great night.
