The stage was set for two hilarious comedy acts, Josephine Lacey and Tony Law. The audience was welcomed by a sparkly Susie Simms and warmed up at least three times by Tim B’vard in his usual inimitable way before the sound and light glitches were sorted. 

Josephine Lacey was an energetic powerhouse, surprising and sympathetic at every turn. Her comedy was as raw as it was human. 

Tony Law’s self-deprecating talent of regional accents conveyed his smooth but surreal, crazy comedy. His use of props was bizarre with a fast-paced warm brilliance – a refreshing ‘out out’ experience. 

Both acts had the audience in stitches, the loud laughter often causing people to miss the next line – not that anyone minded! 

The fun continued with Alan Funki Francis playing some classy grooves. 

Look out for Kamikaze Komedy – they’ll be back!
