Stand and Deliver was back on Friday night with another delicious cocktail of hilarious comedians.


First up Welsh compare Ellis James who had a full fountain of knowledge on Preston but later confessed he had memorised Wikipedia before the show. He was successful at getting the crowd warmed up for first act The Ginge the Geordie and the Geek, a name which does not need explaining.

The Ginge the Geordie and the Geek are a three piece who create side splitting sketch shows which are a little bit surreal and a little bit silly. From the evolution of Scottish chavs David Attenborough style to the story of a crow falling in love with a scarecrow the boys are fast paced and extremely clever.

The second act of the night, and another Geordie, was Kai Humphries. Having seen Kai perform before in Newcastle I knew what to expect and knew I wouldn’t be disappointed by his performance. If you are partial to a rather rude style of comedy then you will love him. Although he preformed the same set on Friday as I saw him perform in Newcastle I still found him hilarious so much so if I stopped laughing my cheeks hurt!

Headliner Geoff Boyz discussed the trials and tribulations of staying at a friend’s house and gave away some of the deepest darkest secrets of manhood. Impressions of Robert Di Nero got the most laughs from the audience who were fully engaged in the comedy all night.

The next Stand and Deliver is on Friday 22nd October at 53degrees. Ticket Prices: £8 NUS £10 Public and are available online, on the door or in the UCLan Students’ Union.
