Hey everyone, it’s Beth again.
Firstly, thank you soooooooo much to everyone who came and supported the show last Friday – especially with the dreaded ‘c’ word going around. Honestly, I had such a great time and was slightly overwhelmed by how you guys laughed with me (at me?) and took time out of your evenings to listen to the deaf girl be funny.
I think it’s fair to say the acts were amazing and Olly makes for a cracking host. Also, fun fact, I actually had to pee BAD whilst performing and was not just pretending for the sake of one poem. I swear Mr Fruit Salad made it seem like he was about to finish every five minutes and then it led me into a vicious circle of ‘I’ll go now, wait no he’s finishing, okay NOW, never mind I’ll be on soon’ until I was actually on stage about to wet myself. I didn’t. I did have one of the best wees in my life after my set though.
Who knows when I’ll get to see you guys again but hopefully it’s soon and I hope everyone keeps well.
Hi there. My name is Beth Fox and I’ve been in the stand-up comedy game for a little over a year now. I’m a drama student here at UKC and fell into comedy by pure chance as I chose a module called Popular Performance, not knowing it was about comedy, poetry and spoken word. Since then, I have organised monthly comedy gigs at Bramley’s (watch out for April’s gig) and performed a few places around campus. I was absolutely GASSED to be asked to do Funny Rabbit and broaden my comedy horizons.
I was recently told that I’m losing my hearing and all I could think of in that moment was “nice, more comedy material” so expect deaf jokes; they don’t call me Deaf Beth for nothing. Writing comedic poetry became a trait of mine a few months ago not for any reason other than people laughed more.
Olly, thanks for giving me a platform to perform on and I can’t wait to perform at the Gulb for you guys.
It’s me, Alf White, back with the second instalment of the Funny Rabbit Blog. If you don’t know who I am, you may remember me from such things as the first instalment of the Funny Rabbit Blog. If you were at last Friday’s show, I was the guy that came through the audience, played three minutes of classical guitar, told a made-up story about pocket money and then showed off a cartoon penis on his stomach. A penis which, by the way, due to the indelible nature of the pen I used to draw it, is still very much on my stomach. This would be fine, except for the fact that I sleep face down and consequently it has transferred itself firstly, onto my bed sheets and secondly, back onto various other locations on my body. So don’t ever say that comedians don’t make sacrifices for their art.
I digress. Thank you very much to everyone who came along and stayed on board through what, even by my standards was a particularly challenging set. It was a very varied bill in terms of style, which for me, always makes for a great gig. I hope you enjoyed my set, and of course everyone else’s too. If you didn’t, you try drawing lots of willies all over your body and see you like it.
Lots of Love and do please come back next month,
Welcome to the first Funny Rabbit blog!
Hello! My name is Alf White and I’m a comedian/performance artist/general cool dude from right here at UKC. A year ago, I was one of the first two student guest acts to perform at Funny Rabbit and since then my burgeoning stand-up career has taken me to places as widespread and diverse as two further Funny Rabbit guest spots and Blean. In all seriousness, I’m very excited to be back and do please keep asking me to do it, Olly.
At this point, some of you may be thinking: ‘But Alf I’ve seen you at Funny Rabbit before and frankly, I’m amazed that you’ve chosen to spend your Valentine’s day with us, the lovely Funny Rabbit audience, instead of taking advantage of one of presumably many, many offers of company on this most romantic of evenings. I for one can’t wait to see your imaginative, surreal style which creatively incorporates musical comedy and props again, but I simply don’t understand why you’re here.’ And to that I say, none of your business.
Aha lol seriously tho lmao. Thank you very much to Funny Rabbit for having me on again. It’s always a fun show and it’s got a really lovely community feel about it. As a student comic it’s always nice to gig with those who are a little bit further down the line and ask lots of questions, etc. If you enjoy my set tonight, then you can come to the Chortle Student Award heats at Goldsmiths University of London on March 12th and laugh at me and no-one else, because that is what comedy is all about.
Lots of love,
