that's such a rubbish reason to dock points

I agree with them, if the venue is hard to get to and that ruins the night then the night is ruined.

I'd also dock points off Milton Keynes Bowl and Stadium which have started to get these big only UK shows recently. Just by being in Milton Keynes it makes the gig worse!

London? Roundhouse is OK for a largish venue, but I love the Lexington. Used to like the Scala but had a bad experience there a few weeks back. Union Chapel also great.

 

Outside London, Ramsgate Music Hall is decent, although the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge probably my favourite. And for comedy, the Stand in Edinburgh is the best venue in the world, bar none.

Alexandra Palace has been my least favourite venue for a few years but I recently moved to within walking distance so I'll be forcing myself to like it. Black Midi, Metronomy and Khruangbin booked so far. Hopefully the theatre is good and I can find the secrets to enjoying the big room.

Of my favourites only Roundhouse could stand a chance of topping list.

Alright Mardy. How you doing? Long time no speak. Had to delete the Twitter for my sanity. Anyway:

Genuine question: What makes a decent / great comedy venue (as opposed to a music venue with great sound / acoustics / viewing visibility, etc)?

Aye and getting back from. If you're ending up with the choice of leaving early or missing the last transport home the venue ain't good. Sorry.

“When are they gonna get to the acts touring around Glastonbury 2022?”

New to the forum. My mate reckons Frankie Valli could do a Glasto set Friday or even Sunday afternoon given these dates:

I am very hopeful Diana Ross is still the Legend given her O2 Arena dates on the Thurs, Friday and Saturday leaving Sunday free.

Woffy, come here and give us a kiss you magnificent bastard. How's tricks?

For comedy, i reckon you want a) to be downstairs, dunno why, but it feels important, something about going down the steps b) a low roof, I think the laughs need to be contained and not escape upwards/outwards c) a low stage, 9-12 inches max. d)Stage should be pretty small, one mic, couple of spots. no frills. e)the backstage area shouldn't be literally backstage, the comedian should have to walk through the crowd a bit to get onto the stage. and f) there needs to be no space at the front, no real gap between comedian/crowd. A ramshackle arrangement of chairs, not neccesarily in formal rows

Diana Ross will surely play.

Frankie Valli... That Friday is possible I suppose.

But yeesh, I'm not really so sure who'd enjoy it. This is all a bit cruise ship entertainment. I'm pretty sure he doesn't sing either.

it's not hard to get to. it's accessible by bus and not far from the centre of Leeds

I was surprised to see he still does do three nights on the run so it is possible. Feels unlikely but I guess he could do an afternoon Pyramid slot or maybe headline The Acoustic.

There is no way on this earth that he is hitting those notes.

Favourite venues:-

Nottingham Rock City (hard to argue with those saying it’s the best. It’s just got *it* right, whatever it is).

Glasgow Barrowlands

Glasgow King Tuts

Glasgow Academy is a good space though the drinks choices are a bit shit.

Manchester Apollo

Mwah! All good buddy! Literally just found out I can drink alcohol while taking the antibiotics I’ve been prescribed. Result. 
 

Wow. Impressive. You REALLY know how to comedy.

I would really like to investigate it further, but I would also like to never hear it again.

I strapped in and delved into the YouTube comments. 

Apparently he’s been lip-syncing to the same recording since 2013. 

The consensus between his Italian American fans seems to be that they know this but really DGAF.
