ED2012 Comedy Review: Tony Jameson And Katie Mulgrew Tell Tales (The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2012

Are they or aren’t they? A double act or comedy partners? Actually Tony Jameson and Katie Mulgrew are like comedy flatmates sharing a venue on separate stand up shifts. With shared Northern origins there are similarities as their warmth and charm creates an amiable atmosphere in an intimate venue. The differences lie more in the down to earth delivery of “Football Manager” Jameson and more theatrical style of “Posh scally” Mulgrew. Accessible themes include Geordie shore, pet owners, family members and Ann Summers parties but although I laughed heartily and often at this show, there were a few gags that didn’t fully escalate. I am encouraged to see either comedian again as they continue to develop their art and unique selling points.

The Stand Comedy Club, 4-26 Aug (not 13), 1.10pm.
