Bobby Davro - Comedy Genius

I went to a jazz night in Wimbledon on Tuesday night. It was a treat for myself and April from Jenny and Steve, but in truth it was a treat for all of us.

The night was held in a restaurant in a very nice part of Wimbledon ‘Village’, and was £50 a head, not including booze, I paid that part 3 or 4 bottles of wine and a bottle of champagne.

We must have been the youngest group in there and the food wasn’t great but it was still good fun.

The main performer was Kenny Lynch, I can remember him from years ago and was very good, quite Sinatra like. The band was good and so too was the small set of a singer / saxophonist (not at the same time, although it would be a good skill for Britain’s Got Talent’s next series).

The highlight of the evening was the appearance of Bobby Davro! We’d joked about him earlier in the evening as apparently he’s good friends with Kenny Lynch and they were on tour together in the past but not in our wildest dreams did we think that he’d be there too.

He ended up doing a 5 minute stand up which included a few impressions and then he did a couple of songs with Kenny.

Comedy gold!

All in all a very enjoyable evening.
