Comedy night at Equinox this evening was okay, a few guffaws, at least one belly laugh but I get very bored with practically a whole set talking about drugs. Figures suggest 1 in 3 people have taken illicit drugs in their lifetime, so jokes about drugs are leaving two-thirds of the audience cold - unless comedy audiences are more susceptible to drug jokes than your average joe. I suggest comedians select topics that the majority of people will relate to, not the minority. I enjoyed the bill-topping Graham Wooding but he seemed to run out of steam and tailed off, while Devin Monaghan chose drugs as his main vehicle of comedy.
