Christmas comes to South Street
December 20, 2002
The energetic Jarred Christmas is said to have a character of his own and a sense of delivery that makes the most bizarre thoughts and observations totally acceptable to the listener.
Last year, the man with the perfect name for that precise time of the year made it to the finals of the Daily Telegraph Open Mic, the BBC New Comedy Awards, the Lewisham Comedy Festival and the Amused Moose New Act.
The affable and upbeat Al Pitcher is known to have a hilarious take on those everyday things we can all relate to.
But be careful, because the man also has a wild imagination, and you might get carried away in the midst of his rather strange and surreal lines.
Meet the lot at the central Reading venue at 8.30pm for £7.
Call the box office on (0118) 960 6060.
M IF YOU think you could do with some sobering-up after the end of the year's festivities, well try out Richard Herring and his ‘little chap'.
The comic will take the matter in hand as part of his new show - Talking Cock - when he comes to Bracknell's South Hill Park Arts Centre on Saturday, January 11.
For those who ever wondered whether or not size was important - and if not, why are there no two-inch long, pencil thin vibrators - and how many men fake orgasms to please their partners?
He will answer these questions and more.
The show, which became a sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival, is said to be the equivalent of the Vagina Monologues - with balls.
Tickets cost £12 and the show starts at 8pm. Call the box office on (01344) 484123.
M IF YOU have got nothing better to do on New Year's Eve, the newly opened Jongluers at Bar Risa may still have a few seats available for the special night.
The line-up at the Friar Street venue includes Sean Percival, Anthony King, Milton Jones and Stephen K Amos. For tickets, call the box office on (08700 787 0707 or log on to www.jongleurs.co.uk.
