Anyway the act that had attracted me to the gig was Alun Cochrane who I used to think unfunny but now appreciate - he's part of the Frank Skinner Absolute Radio Saturdays Breakfast show most Saturday mornings.

The No.5 club also gives the chance for new comedians and last night there were 2 very good female comedians - with original style including the first Kenyan Comedienne I've seen (working under that title anyway).
If only buildings could speak..TV Centre
On my way to an appointment the other day I passed what had been/could have been called (I suppose) the home of British Entertainment the old BBC TV centre.
|Good and Bad|
Well the site hgas been sole and I expect it'll be shops and flats soon (perhas some offices too).
What would the building say about Top of The Pops or the Two Ronnies - we can only speculate as modern scientific thought indicates that most likely buildings don't talk and share memories.
|How it once was|
Near the Pub was the Middlesex hospital - it was knocked down some time ago but the new development is moving forward, due to open in 2014 flats and shops I expect.
I remember being at ITN in 1980 when Peter Sellers died at the hospital - not a lack of laughs when on-stage there but heart issues.
