LEE NELSON PERFORMED AT MONKEY BUSINESS TONIGHT
My good friend Lee Nelson /Simon Brodkin who made headlines throughout the world recently with his throwing golf balls at Donald Trump ,and handing Teresa May her p45 in parliament came to perform some new material .
When I mentioned to him that his hands were noticeable shaking at his p45 stunt ,he admitted that he had been genuinely afraid that he could have been badly beaten up or even shot .

AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL SAVED THE NIGHT LAST NIGHT It was an extraordinary situation ..So I had booked four acts /One of the booked acts failed to confirm and I coulden`t get hold of him .(The Northern line was out of order .(Just a replacement bus service )It was particularly quite because of the football .Eshan Akba and Mark Silcox closed the first half with lovely sets ,but I had an hour to fill in before Kate Lucas would arrive (not her fault ) It ended up that three members of the audience helped out by participating to fill in the hour ..Chap in last photo on the end had never been on stage before .but always wanted to for-fill that dream and he was really good ,followed after by an 11 year old girl who I think felt sorry for me and my situation telling a couple of jokes about her family .(She was very funny (thank you G-d for making it a successful evening ! It was then the turn of her dad to take to the stage with his chicken impression .which coincided with his wife going to the loo out of embarrassment .(It somehow became a very entertaining night

Monkey Business last night OK ,It was only a small crowd because of the football ,gay pride day ,and it was hot .but it was a very interesting fun gig .We started off with young Aaron Spalding ,and then Benjamin Bankole Bello who were both fabulous in the first half .The second half was purely excellent with Lewis Schaffer in the form of his life ,Our closing act Kate Smurthwaite was pure joy to watch completing her set singing the song CABARET .Everyone joined in . Oh I nearly forgot there was a little debating session ,and it was hysterical to witness Kate and Lewis have some affectionate digs at each other
