The wonderful thing with comedy is that you don’t need a big stage or audience to have a good laugh and a great time.

Three weeks in and I haven’t missed a show so that must be testimony that the gig is good.

Hosted by the St Kilda Comedy Club, 25 Blessington Street, St Kilda is the place to be on a Tuesday night from 8pm.

Resident MC CJ Fortuna warms the crowd for a night of open mic with a smattering of seasoned pros.  With host Paul Blackburn working his butt off serving the odd free cocktail to punters that can hold the vibe and win the trick questions. Always the entrepreneur Paul suggests that you get there early to secure your seats.

Remember back in the day when the Espy hotel was in full swing? Back when stand up comedy ruled the Gershwin room every Sunday afternoon?

A glorious mix of new and seasoned comics would strut their stuff in front of a packed enthusiastic crowd.

Back in the day when Hughesy was on the dole, Rove was in a double act with his old mate Duff and Pommy Johnson’s song Psycho Chicken could be heard bellowing through the sacred hall to an eruption of applause; the punters getting drunk off laughter alone.

Those were the days. It was a comedy show with a rock’n’roll vibe. Espy comedy was the best thing in town.

Imagine if ‘back in the day’ was back tomorrow or more specifically back on Sunday the 24th of September at 2pm.
That’s right the Hotel along with the St Kilda Arts Crawl and St Kilda Comedy Club are opening the doors to the Gershwin room.

For a one off special event bringing back the glory days of comedy in Melbourne.
