David Morgan was the warm up act, who told stories about growing up in Birmingham and the awkward truths about planning a gay marriage.
The main show was Sofie Hagen, a Danish stand up comedienne, who hosted her show 'Dead Baby Frog'. Contrary to what the title led us to think, the show was not related to animal cruelty but was based upon her family and her experiences growing up with her not-so pleasant Grandfather.
Centred on her relationship with her 'Dad-dad' (Grandfather in Danish), the title was a clever analogy on the theory that a frog placed in boiling water will immediately jump out, but if the temperature is increased gradually, the frog will stay put until it boils alive.
The unusual routine lead to some mixed feeling as to whether the warm up act, with more traditional jokes, was better! Despite the dark story however, Sofie's show provided plenty of laughs and giggles as she engaged with the audience. Everyone had a fantastic time and it was a great way to relax on a Friday evening.
Thank you to Jake Parker-Bishop (Sloan Plumb Wood) for organising another successful event!
