It's Friday, y'all! Time to do the Friday dance, and time to get out there and find something fun to do. Here are my suggestions, predictably comedy-centric as they are:
Smooth-talking Georgian Reginald D Hunter is on at Just the Tonic tonight. Don't be fooled by the laid-back, deep-south charm he exudes on numerous TV panel shows every week, his stand-up shows are a lot more controversial and hard-hitting, and no subject is taboo for this former drama student-turned-massively successful stand-up. As far as I'm aware, Reg is opening tonight so get there on time! Also on the bill are Pierre Hollins, Brett Goldstein and compere Matt Reed. Tickets and more info on the support acts are here: http://www.justthetonic.com/Leicester-comedy/shows/friday-23-november-2012/805/
If that's not your thing, get thee over to the Cookie Jar, where for just four of your British pounds will gain you entry to the first Leicester heat of national student comedy contest Tickled Pig. Hosted by loveable scamp Jack Campbell (now with added Movember face-fuzz), the line-up tonight consists of Shaun Turner, Martin England, Curtis Young, Sarah Keyworth and Reuben Williams-Smith, all performing 7-8 minute sets of original material to try and win their way through to the Regional Finals in 2013... Good luck to 'em all! More details and tickets here: http://www.thecookiejarleicester.co.uk/events/tickled-pig-leicester-heat-1-2/
Those are my suggestions for tonight - ignore them AT YOUR PERIL!!!
