TV stars shine at clean comedy night
The Diocese of St Asaph proved once again that clean comedy can also be very funny after three top comedians entertained more than 150 people at Llangollen Pavilion on Saturday 8 June.
Compere Tony Vino warmed everyone up with some audience participation before introducing TV star Jo Enright.
Jo has appeared in shows like Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and Life’s Too Short. She entertained everyone with stories of her childhood in Birmingham and the things she managed to learn at drama school.
After the interval Tony introduced the headline act – Barbara Nice. Barbara played Holy Mary in Phoenix Nights and her unique brand of comedy had everyone laughing as she sang and danced her way to the front. After finally making it onto “the stage made out of wallpaper pasting tables”, she ably demonstrated how doing the hoovering had helped her learn to keep control of the microphone lead.
With plenty of audience participation, Barbara finished the evening by releasing helium balloons into the air to leave everyone feeling “high”.
The Comedy Night was organised as part of the REACH programme – a series of events designed to bridge the gap between God, spirituality and everyday life. It’s hoped the next evening of comedy will be held in October.
