I was lucky enough to go to the second Comedy night hosted by local Michael Dryburgh at Backhaus&Co. He is certainly one of my favourite comedians I’ve seen live and it’s the same for a lot of other people I’ve spoken too. Unfortunately on this occasion, Mum duties came into play and I had to leave early so I only saw the first act. The first act was Jon Pearson, he was hilarious and really engaged with the audience which made it even better. My friend that came with me spoke to him a few times during the act and the banter they had was so funny for them and everyone in the room.
As my Mum duties arose and I had to leave as Lily was very upset, I spoke to a few other people that attended the event and got their views. So you really get a lot more views than just mine on this, which is even better!
Amy Turner who attended said “The headliner was incredible, he was so funny! It’s great to see new acts from around the UK that you normally wouldn’t see and the calibre of the comedy was great” She also said she would go again and “It’s just what Coventry needs more of – things to do in the evenings that bring joy!”.
Jodie King who loved the night said “All the comedians had a specific genre of comedy but it all meshed really well together, excellent job to Michael who organised it.”
She also said “Comedy is important because life is hard and stressful, being able to laugh is a great release to remember to enjoy the little things. I would definitely go again, the organisers knew what they were doing which made a fantastic night where I laughed heartily. There was such a diverse crowd which goes to show how much diversity there is in comedy.
Comedy is certainly something that can lift your mood in an instant, the atmosphere is amazing at Backhaus&co alongside the scrumptious food and drinks (wine & prosecco for me) its a perfect night out for anyone.
