Modern Art Variety 7th July

  • by Viki Jackson

Summer loving had me a blast, Summer loving happened so fast… The sunshine had gone to our heads as we found ourselves in the mix of the second Modern Art Variety, beautifully themed as our summer ball. The night kicked off with a Grease singalong and a beach ball toss before the Viking (David Hoskin) took us sailing into the night. 

James Pendleton was our stand up act of the evening and taught us how Duolingo can help you get laid in Spanish. Then we had our audience act of the night. I should explain this, at the start of the night the audience had a chance to sign up to do a set. One was picked at random and this time it was Oliver. He had one shoe on and we’re still not quite sure why.  

Next was Charlie Jackson who took the modern art theme very literally and did a set as a portrait of a man in the bath. I guess a bath is close to a pool right?

Eric was up to his usual tricks and found any opportunity to get into the paddling pool between acts. We also had our raffle which had amazing prizes including a volcano making kit!

Cameron Sinclair Harris took us to the stars and taught us a thing or two about Mercury. We rounded off the night with Stephen Catling’s set which couldn’t BEE any sweeter. As in his act involved honey. A lot of honey. And a very messy stage. 

No summer ball is complete without a water fight which ensued between Eric and Viki. We’re not sure who won, we’re not sure why we are so wet but we sure did have fun! 

The night was MC’d by Josh InVain and Viki Jackson. Special thanks to Small Beer Brewery for having us back!
