Hear the Lion House Roar!
The Lion House function suite was roaring with laughter last Thursday, when we played host to another of our monthly comedy club nights
At the Lion Inn Chelmsford. Why not book comedians or book a comedy night for your event with us?
This was another sold out event, featuring four top comedians, many of which were TV comedians.
The packed function suite welcomed our host comedian Danny Ward to stage as the show went up at 9pm.
Comedian Ward started the evening in fine fashion with a delivery of gags that were up-beat and well honed. His easy-going style relaxed the audience for the 2 hour show ahead.
It was then time to welcome our opening comedian Jeff Innocent. TV comedian Jeff Innocent is now part of the comedy gentry now, and has been a professional stand –up comedian for over 20 years. His act has taken him to perform all over the world and is one of the UK’s top headline comedians. Innocent has appeared on many TV programmes, including Later with Jools Holland, Time and Gentlemen Please, and a role alongside Vinnie Jones in Mean machine . Innocents set was very well received by the Chelmsford comedy fans indeed!
Host comedian Danny Ward then took to the stage to introduce our short spot, Harriet Kemsley. Kemsley being quite new to the comedy scene, had some great observational material, the audience sat tight for 15 minutes and was clear to see it was enjoyed by all.
Host comedian Ward returned to set up the joke competition before taking a short interval.
It was then time for the audience to judge the competition, with the joke being ‘ What’s the difference between Kim Jong Un and a potato masher !’ The winner was whittled down to Hilary Wood, who won two tickets to the next show on October 19th.
The time had now come to welcome our headline act Jonny Awsum. TV comedian Jonny Awsum recently got into the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent, and was recognised by the audience as soon as he took to the stage. The next half hour was upbeat with fantastic silly songs, which saw the audience getting involved and dancing on the stage from George! A truly great night ofcomedy in Chelmsford, we cannont wat to return on October 19th!
