AFTERNOON at Jewish Care Westcliff Southend Essex .I put on their very first comedy show with Lewis Schaffer and Lynn Ruth Miller .Most of the audience were in their mid eighties .Lewis found his audience more challenging then usual but the funniest moment was when he asked an 86 year old heckling woman if she would do him to which she replied no .I rather have a cup of tea she declared .84 year old comedian Lynn Ruth Miller was a big hit with her charming funny story-telling .Photos below

In afternoon I went along with my mum and friend Biba to see my good friend of many years Jessica Martin in her lead roll as Bea Asher in Ballroom at The Waterloo East theatre .Wow ,It was such a beautiful charming production full of song dance and soul .You just never wanted it to end .
The audience were treated afterwards to something very special being that the composer of the music Billy Goldenberg joined the cast to take questions ,and tell wonderful story's about his life.
Afterwards I met up with Jessica for a chat .Jessica might be attending the Monkey Business show in early July which stars Bobby Davro our mutual friend .(Last time at Monkey Business Jessica Martin joined Bobby Davro on stage . .After the show we went to a lovely nearby Cuban restaurant to eat and my mum hit the dance floor to salsa .
