WANT TO help to get a comedy show on to TV? At a legendary East End venue, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, the chance has arisen to do that.
Obviously, the event might never get on to the little screen. (Who can see into the minds of TV commissioners?) But it might, and you should still have had a good night’s entertainment.
It will not cost you much: Loving Dalston subscribers, readers and followers need pay only £2 on the door. Details below.
Caroline Hardie wrote to Loving Dalston: “I am one of the production team for a small group of comedians trying to do things a bit differently. We’re setting up an indie-funded – though barely – TV work-in-progress show, Gorgeous Bastards.
“We’re aiming to have control over the product that is finally sent to a TV channel. The comedians, led by me at the moment, are putting the taster/pilot together, then taking the show to production companies.”
In Gorgeous Bastards, acts will be set challenges by one another and by the audience.
Hardie adds: “The show will be playing about with ideas and reintroducing risk to make things more exciting for the audience – and the acts.”
“Its chosen home is the fantastic Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. If you haven’t been to it, this is the night to try it out.”
