Headliners Comedy: George IV pub, Chiswick, London, 2019
John Fothergill compered Headliners Comedy Club when I went along in 2016. The fearless Geordie comedian’s stamp of authority with an audience was evident when his banter with the crowd was extremely smooth, delivering filthy one-liners based on the responses to questions asked to the crowd. He had a snappy attitude that created laughter and warmed the crowd up for the main acts.
Fothergill topped the bill at Headliners Comedy Club in London when I went in March 2019. The Geordie comedian blended some fantastically funny and filthy one liners and jokes with arrogant affronts and slick teasing of the crowd. With the experience of knowing how to get continuous laughter and understanding of the audience, he delivered a great set comparing Northerners with Southerners and effortlessly winning over the crowd.
