Birdies Comedy (2 shows): The Savoy Tap, The Strand, London, 2018
Jimmy Bird runs his own free comedy night Birdies Comedy in London. The showcase is principally for comedians starting out but it also is a place for professional acts to try out new material in a friendly supportive environment. I have been many times and twice in 2018 (in January and September). It is always great to see award-winning Bird perform on the stage. On both occasions in 2018, he effortlessly closed the first half with a blisteringly five minute set with jokes on subjects ranging from growing older to fatherhood which had me and the audience in stitches. Bird is very, very funny and highly recommended.
