We Are Funny Project: Dirty Dicks, Liverpool Street, London, 2012 – 2013
Former TV Producer / Director and BBC News Reporter now comedy promoter Alfie Noakes created the We are Funny Project in London. The project was designed to give new and aspiring comedians a springboard to try out their work whilst also gaining experience from featured seasoned professionals. With as many as 18 acts per night, I went along two or three times in 2012 and 2013 to back try-out comedian Jonathan Boulton and watch him perform five-minute sets. I found Noakes to be engaging and supporting introducing the acts with boundless energy and providing funny stories on everyday life which appealed to the pub audience.
