On 15th March 2012, 7 UCL undergraduates and 1 Cambridge University undergraduate took part in Humour Me: Live!, a show organised by Comedy Blogedy and Bright Club. In February, the acts received a training session with Bec Hill, some of which can be seen on the trailer for Humour Me: Live! The acts then performed their stand-up gig at the Wilmington Arms with David Morgan as MC and Naz Osmangolu headlining the show. The week after Humour Me: Live!, the acts took part in a Q&A session about stand-up and the comedy world with Jonathan Grant, Red24 Management. Humour Me: Live! was filmed by Shyam Popat, also a UCL undergraduate. Here’s what the acts thought of the Humour Me: Live! experience…
On Thursday 15th March 2012, 7 UCL undergraduates, 1 Cambridge University undergraduate and the Head of Public Engagement at UCL took part in a comedy show at The Wilmington Arms presented by Comedy Blogedy and Bright Club called Humour Me: Live!
The show was sold out and there was an amazing buzz in the room as everyone watched the acts perform, and for many of the acts it was their first stand-up gig! David Morgan was a wonderful MC and Naz Osmanoglu performed a superb stand-up set, both of whom have certainly picked up a new load of fans!
The show also raised £150 for the charity Mama Biashara!
I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has taken part and supported the show. In particular, Steve Cross from Bright Club and UCL Public Engagement, for all his help and support in organising Humour Me: Live! and running the gig.
Bec Hill who provided a fantastic training for the students about performing stand-up comedy and writing material, which you can see in the trailer for the show filmed by Shyam Popat, also a UCL undergraduate.
Jonathan Grant, from Red 24 Management, who provided a very useful, interesting and insightful Q & A session with the acts from the show about getting into comedy and the comedy industry in general.
And, of course, a massive thank you to everyone who came to the show and everyone who has supported Comedy Blogedy from its inception.
Lots of comedy love,
Editor, Comedy Blogedy
Following the success of UCL’s regular Bright Club, where university staff share a stage with professional comedians and entertainers to dig out the funny side of their work, it’s now time for UCL students to tread the boards.
Humour Me: Live! will feature a line-up of UCL undergraduates and postgraduate students. The majority are comedy virgins and will be performing their very first five minutes of stand-up – a momentous occasion!
