Birdies Comedy: The Savoy Tap, The Strand, London, 2019
Manchester born comedian Alex Perry stood in for resident compere Brendan O’Donaghue at Birdies free comedy showcase that I saw in October 2019. I had seen Perry do the sane favour for James Gill when he was unable to compere at Always Be Comedy and knew we were in for a good time. Perry had trouble but made light of a loudspeaker which murmured all night and turned into a comedy prop. Perry was effortless with a relatively quiet audience getting the best out of them by playing games before the main acts were introduced.
