Bearcat Comedy at The Viaduct: The Viaduct pub, Hanwell, London, 2018
Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
Jeff Innocent headlined Bearcat Comedy at The Viaduct when I went along to the monthly showcase in October 2018 and again at Always Be Comedy in February 2019. Now in his sixties, Innocent has a very funny face for comedy and his stage appearance resembled a Cockney old boy straight out of a British gangster film – immediately making the audience laugh before he even said anything.
The natural stand-up showed the audience his metal after having played the clubs for years. He delivered his extremely funny jokes with confidence and style completely taking control of the room. The cockney comedian’s cultural comment the UK’s North / South divide, age and race went down a storm. Upon meeting him after the shows, he came across as a very warm, sincere, funny man who had seen it all, as well as a truly great comedian. Innocent comes highly recommended.
