This was my first visit to the Crazy Coqs nightspot in Zedel Brasserie, but it will certainly not be my last! What a fabulous location - intimate, fun and full of tasty food and cocktails at reasonable prices!
While we sat and waited we all filled in cards with random thoughts, things and sayings - these were dropped into a jar and formed the basis for the entire evening - from the name of our personality "Matthew Discovery", to his place of origin, "Tulsa" to everything about him, his family, friends and life.
Lots of recognisable song styles and very clever wordplay meant that this improv evening went really quickly - we laughed, we cheered and we had a ball! Jason is incredibly clever and funny, believe me.
Ruth Bratt joined Jason on stage for a duet and for the grand finale - racing through most of the remaining cards simply fitting all the words in where they could; clever, funny and very entertaining. Note that each night sees a different colleague joining Jason on stage.
A great evening made better by starting at 19:00 and lasting but 90 minutes meaning we got home at a reasonable time!
Accompanied by John Thorn on piano (also MD), Jonny Gee on bass and Sophie Alloway on drums this was everything I hoped it would be - an excellent evening in every way.
