Big TV star from the eighties Bobby Davro was our headline act ,and making it all very especially exciting was that I managed to get in touch with his co star of THE eighties Copy Cats Jessica Martin.I haden`t seen her since 1986 ,but she has kepted very active with comic drawings as well as acting in West End productions like Spamalot.She also briefly took to the stage with Davro

Here are some photos taken from the night

Our singles night attracted many more girls then guys


The story of Cliff Richard and Monkey Business gets front page on Chotle

 London's Monkey Business comedy club has been taken in by a man who claimed Sir Cliff Richard wanted to try his hand at stand-up, kicking off with a mere two-hour gig. Owner Martin Besserman was convinced that Eithne Pozzi was the singer's personal assistant, even though he misspelled his alleged boss's surname 'Richards' more than once. 'Sir Cliff is famous for his hit singles like Congratulations. Cliff would like to try his hand at stand up .Would you be interested in having Sir Cliff performing stand up set at Monkey Business,' Pozzi emailed. After Bessman said yes, he replied: 'Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. Sir Cliff Richard is sitting opposite me right now and has given me a big thumbs up. A big thumbs up and a smile that could light up Lisbon.' Pozzi swore Besserman to secrecy, but the promoter couldn't help but post the news on his Facebook page, promoting a telling off: 'Oh Martin - that was very unprofessional, PLEASE DO NOT TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT THIS. Sir Cliff Richards is now having a serious rethink.' The next day he repented: 'OK Martin, Sir Cliff Richard has said, "These things happen. Martin is clearly the man."' Pozzi then asked for the two-hour slot, but to maintain secrecy wanted to be listed as 'Sir Harry Webb' – Cliff's real name, and not exactly a secret. Eventually Besserman twigged, after Pozzi refused to hand over any sort of contact number. 'Sir Cliff Richards is not happy we have to be so cautious,' he posted. 'Jesus be with you.'

A wonderful comedy night which included




New Years Eve 2014

Like last year I held three New Years Eve shows which were all very well attended .

It was reported that the shows at both CoCobamboo and Sir Richard Steele went well .

Unfortunatly our show at The Oxford was spoilt for some by chatting drunks .

who refused to belt  up regardless of being requested to do so many times.

I am trying to get hold of everyone who attended that show to be given free tickets for another show of choice.

In terms of quality acts Monkey Business could hardly be beaten . 

Lee Nelson performed a secret gig at all three venues to everyone`s huge delight . 

The line ups also included Patrick Monahan ,Christian Shulte Lau , and other enjoyable acts.

We also booked 80`s star at The Oxford to sing,and she got them all dancing / 

We also included a free veggie buffet to provide extra value.


It was our last night at The Sir Richard Steele after 10 years of bringing lots of laughter
