I’ve always enjoyed my trips to Headliners in Chiswick, even though we don’t normally know the acts in advance I havent seen a weak act yet. Last night was different as we went to see Sol Bernstein, we had seen him before at the Ealing Comedy Festival.
The evening started with Phil Dinsdale as the MC and he proved to be a very good warm up act. His material about going to the gym was really funny.
Next up was Addy Van Der Borgh who had us in stitches. His humour was quite visual with facial expressions adding to the punch lines but very funny.
Then it was the man we came to see Sol Bernstein. A little old Jewish American who looks like butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth. I think he surprised the room with the filth that came out of it. Having seen his act before we weren’t surprised and I genuinely had a stitch from laughing.
Finishing the night was Andrew Maxwell who I’ve seen on the TV on and off for a few years. He was really good. His material was different from the stuff you see him do on the TV. But funny nevertheless.
He rounded off a good solid night of performances well and I ended up leaving with sore cheeks from laughing which I consider to be a good end to a good night.
If you like live comedy Headliners in Chiswick is a really nice venue. It’s in a room at the back of the George IV Pub which in itself is a really nice pub. It’s easy to get to on transport and parking has never been a problem.
You can pre-book tickets http://www.headlinerscomedy.com/chiswick.html or pay on the door if it is not a sell out.
