Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
James Dowdeswell: Beers of A Clown: Clapham Fringe 2022, The Bread & Roses Theatre, Clapham, London, 2022
Collywobblers Comedy at Sambrook’s Brewery: Sambrook’s Bewery, Wandsworth, London, 2023
James Dowdeswell made a rare appearance at Always Be Comedy in November 2019. The world that Dowdeswell created on stage was so imaginatively daft and weird that the audience loved his take on everyday things. His stories were funny, silly and daft yet with an intelligent undercurrent.
Dowdeswell performed his solo show Beers of A Clown for Clapham Fringe 2022 in London in September 2022. Describing the history of brewing and growing up in a pub, the comedian was extremely witty and intelligent in his thinking. It was wonderful spending time in Dowdeswell’s company, having a beer with him after the show and purchasing his brilliant book The Pub Manifesto: A Comedian Stands Up for Pubs.
It was great to see Dowdeswell perform the show again as the first act on the first night of Collywobblers Comedy at Sambrook’s Brrewery in July 2023.
