Arnold Brown’s 80th Birthday Bash: The Comedy Store, London, 2016

John Dowie was a guest at Arnold Brown’s Birthday Bash that I saw at The Comedy Store in London in 2016.  Dowie overlapped different groups of comics between folk club stand-ups of the seventies such as Jasper Carrott, Mike Harding and Billy Connolly and the alternative comics of the Comedy Store and the Comic Strip in the eighties where he encountered among many others Arthur Smith, Alexei Sayle and Arnold Brown.  In 1991, he retired from stand-up comedy and his contribution to Brown’s Birthday Bash saw him paying a rare glowing tribute.
