I was sent this dress so long ago, but never got the chance to wear it in the real world.

At the end of June, it was my friends Birthday and we went to a comedy club. I wasn’t sure what to wear, then remembered this beauty I got last year.

I’ve never been to a comedy evening before and I didn’t think that I’d find it that funny. I have such a weird sense of humour and don’t tend to find typical humour very LOLALBLE:

  • Inbetweeners? Don’t get it, they’re just dicks.
  • That shit my family made me watch at Christmas. Mrs Brown’s Boys or something, well, it made me want to die.

Not because I was laughing so much, but because it was just too stupid I was wondering why this was something everyone was so THRILLED it would be on CHRISTMAS DAY.

Luckily there was an 8 year old there to entertain me by putting flashy LED extensions in my hair. Oh, and there was port.

Anyway, what was my point again? OH YEAH… I was going to this comedy club and expecting it to be like, totes awks.

We had a work function a few years ago, they had a comedian on for a bit and he ended getting really mad because nobody was listening to him or laughing at his jokes. He ended up walking of stage. I reiterate: #TOTESAWKS.

So, we went to Jongleurs, in Leeds. We queued for our tickets and had our photo taken just before entering.

We were directed to our seats and there was a little confusion around where we were being seated. We went to the bar and got drinks before the start of the show.

Next to the stage, they had screens either side that were projecting the photos everyone had taken by the entrance on a slide show, which was a nice touch.

They also had their Twitter handle on the screen and the DJ was holding competitions. The first one was to do a #selfie and Tweet it to them, I won! I won a bottle of bubbly and some tickets. Okay, it was cheap bubbly, but you can’t complain at free, right?

The comedians came on and it was such a good night. Three different comedians with three different sense of humours. I did massive laughs, many massive laughs, holding my belly type of laughs and would LOVE to go again.

The only thing that bothered me was that it was so hot in there, there was no air con and I thought I was going to pass out at one point. I had to go to the toilets and take my tights off for a bit of extra air!

Now I’m getting older, I’d much prefer to do something like this than go out clubbing. I’m really not into waking up on a Sunday with a hangover, £60 less in my bank account and not knowing what the hell happened the night before!

Have you ever been to a comedy club?

  1. Oh! I thought you have enjoyed this time. I feel older too because I would rather stay at home with my computer reading blogs or watching series. Anyway…I loved the dress you chose for this experience. Kisses, Corinne:)

  2. This looks like so much fun! I would love something like this! Never been to a comedy club, and have only heard of this one ‘cos Michael McIntyre talks about it in his book :’) I also don’t get Mrs Brown’s boys, so weird. I hate The Simpsons as well but everyone seems to love it?! xo

  3. That sounds like fun!!! And congrats on winning the tickets and a bottle of bubbly 😀 – ps: that dress looks nice on you x

  4. A really lovely dress definitely need to wear it more. I really enjoy comedy nights, I think they are all hot too many people in a small location. I am writing a post about port at the moment and was thinking who is likely to read this. Hopefully from the fact you had port at christmas I might have one person read it. Lucy x

  5. Sounds like my kind of night out! There’s a comedy club in town I keep meaning to go to but still haven’t got round to it! I know what you mean about the aversion to clubbing, I mean I like a couple of places every now and again but I hate waking up the next day and loosing the rest of my weekend all because I had one too many (hello old age!)

    I went to an amateur comedy night a while ago…oh man….totally awks would have been a perfect way to describe a couple of those acts!

  6. Me too, I would much rather have a nice evening than go out drinking. I like to go to a nice music concert to dance and sing but a comedy show, I would quite like to do that too.

    My sense of humour is a little off too, I never really got Mrs. Browns Boys, it just isn’t funny. I’m not a big fan of one liners really. I’ve only ever been to one comedy show, Jimmy Carr and I fell asleep! I don’t find him funny either.

    I do love the dress though!

  7. That dress is so cute! Louder dresses can be so cute sometimes.

    I’ve never been to a comedy club, but I can see how it’s a better alternative to clubbing!

    Congrats on the free (cheap) bubbly!

  8. such a gorgeous dress! i love the print

  9. I’m so glad you had a nice time! I’ve never been to a comedy club, I have to try it sometime… And that floral dress is really lovely!

  10. I’ve never been to one. I’ve been to comedy based theatric performances (because I had friends performing lol) but that would be as close as I’ve gotten. I do find everything funny – even stupid stuff makes me laugh. I’m worse when I’m fuelled with booze. Come to think of it I’m not sure if there are any comedy clubs where I live. Obviously I’m sure there are but I’ve never noted any. I might have to check it up. Though I also highly doubt there’d be a selfie contest to win free booze. Even if it’s cheap, it’s still free. Free = WINNING any day!

  11. This looks like great fun! I’ve never been to a comedy night, but have been stand up gigs for Dylan Moran and Milton Jones. Would love to go to a comedy night as it would be good to see a different variety of comedians.

    The WORST is places that are too warm, but hope that that the free bubbly cooled you down 🙂
