In the comedy groove

Gina Yashere - top drawer comedian
Top drawer stand-up comedy at Pontoon this evening with Gina Yashere and Emo Philips. It's best that I don't comment on the compere and move swiftly onto Emo, who churned out a bellyful of 1-liners and typical surreal humour, allied to his eccentric appearance and weird voice, all of which went down well with the big audience. Emo's been doing his routine for many years, its a well-crafted and finely-honed set and it showed. His greeting cards prop was a classic. However, Gina Yashere brought the house down in my opinion, with her brash and acerbic wit, observations and general piss-taking. Loved her to bits. She was definitely worth waiting for. Rumnea found Emo funny but hard to catch quite a few of his meanings, but Gina was much more in your face and obvious (especially her dick deck routine) and I wasn't the only one to leave the gig singing the praises of the London-born gag-mistress.
 Emo Philips - a well-crafted performance
