Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB1)
Before the plague and WW3 I was a chortling, apple-cheeked blacksmith and now I am a scowling wretch in a tattered cloak. The show is observational comedy for people who think they don’t like observational comedy. A mixture of high-brow and low-brow references from five-star receiving, award-winning, hit podcasting, Frank Skinner-supporting Pierre Novellie. “Why can’t I just enjoy things?” as in “why am I unable to enjoy the things others do” and “why am I not left to enjoy the things that I do enjoy”. Some positive press:
‘Packed full of belly laughs’ ★★★★★ Metro
‘Hilarious’ ★★★★ Times
‘A stand-up masterclass’ ★★★★ List
