Glitter & Doom #5 – feat Gemma Whelan & Tom Webb – 5th Jan 2011


Some people would say that it’s madness to try and run a gig on the 5th day of a new year, but those people can suck on the big one ’cause we’re doing it anyway.

Dust of the bow-tie and haul out the whale-bone corset, because on Wednesday the 5th of January, Glitter and Doom is stuffing itself into the The Betsey Trotwood like a well-dressed sardine and kicking out the jams comedy-style.

Joining us on this christening of the new year will be Funny Women Variety winner Gemma Whelan and the man voted “Most Likely to be Mistaken for Tom Webb”: Tom Webb, both stirling comics who are sure to both amuse and delight.

As per usual, Kent and Julia will be singing, growling and outstaying their welcome; Sam will radiate cool from his chair and the most excellent Charlie Pyne (female) will keep it all together with a bass line that tickles you in the naughty places. Plus, Mystery Musical Instrument will be making it’s un-asked-for return.

So if the new year hasn’t tickled your fancy by the 5th of Jan, then join us as we crash into 2011 like a freight train carrying comedy, music and radioactive isotopes.
