Laughter Lounge Continues to Tickle
Share This Article:
No other event in my SUSU schedule seems as consistently enjoyable as Laughter Lounge. As a conseur of television comedy, a laughter junkie if you will, it is easy to forget the simple pleasure of attending stand-up, live and uncensored. Watching live comedy is to see the comedian in it's natural habitat, unchained and ready to ridicule your housemate at any moment on their choice of attire for the evening. Bryan Lacey did a stirling job of comparing the evening, with material mainly focused in the groinal region, raising that age-old question of what to name your own genetalia. Several intimate revelations later, Liam Williams came to the stage, taking an irreverant look at some of the high-octane entertainment coming up in SUSU, highlighting the upcomming 'Vinegar Dipping Evening' as particularly noteworthy. 'You're living the dream', he added. Williams' set was an amalgam of slow-burning one-liners and explosive enactments of his subject matter, nearly hacking the mike stand in two as punctuation superhero 'Grammar Man'. However, he was surely at his best spinning lyrical yarns about his youth in Cambridge's answer to Jesters, engaging the audience with vivid portraits of detestable clubbers.
