Went to the Lone Star Comedy night at Lanterns, and it was ALRIGHT! Wasn't quite the show that was advertised, but as an added bonus we got in at a discount, so it all pans out. This was a civil service special, worked out a fiver each on booking a table of 8, you might want to ask about that.
The support act was Dave Dynamite, a chav character with an annoying voice, but funny enough. A bit like Ricky Grover but less hard.
There was no open mic spot this time, this is probably good, this spot can be excruciating. So, we had more drinking and chatting time and no enthusiastic amateur trying things out on us.
The headliner wasn't Matt Welcome as advertised but Matt Kirshen, a fresh faced young comic who got the audience on his side by SHOCK POWER - he looks about eleven, you wouldn't expect him to say those things. Good work feller!

This is my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a frenzy of excitement when I first came here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
