Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
#SaveLiveComedy: (Show 2): The Clapham Grand, London: Online: 2020
Mawaan Rizwan took over the stage at Always Be Comedy when I saw him in September 2019. Wearing sequined suit and matching trousers, the extremely energetic song and dance comedian delivered daft, infectious rap accompanied by an amazing beat on such subjects as the fact that he has never been skiing. He had a member of the audience on stage with him dancing and brought down the house to a very enthused audience.
Rizwan appeared at the second show for #SaveLiveComedy that I watched online live from the Clapham Grand in August 2020. Again, his singing and dancing comedy skills were hilarious.
I hope that my blog reflects my love and respect of live stand up-comedy as its future appears to be extremely fragile because of the worldwide pandemic of 2020. It would be an extremely sad day to see the genre completely disappear. Stand-up comedy is one of the most positive things in life and it gives confidence and joy to those taking part and watching.
