Venue Review – East meet jest

East Meets Jest run their new material night in the upstairs bar in Belushi’s.

It’s a very intimate venue. Well it’s the size of a large living room. But that forces the audience together and magnifies any laughs. As is usual for most of these open mic nights there were at least as many acts as audience but because of it’s size the room felt full.

The compere, John Hamiton , got people on and off efficiently. And unlike some other nights I won’t mention it doesn’t drag on. It’s done in two hours, leaving plenty of time to go out in the West End, or, if like me you have to get up before it’s light in the morning, go home and sleep.

Worth doing, even more so if you are in and around Central London anyway.

PS It looks like they have another new material night in Clapham.
