Back for another evening of side-splitting laughs, Quincy’s Comedy Lounge promises to keep audiences giggling at Stratford Circus this Sunday.
Stand-up comedian, presenter and writer Quincy, along with his company of entertainers, will host a nostalgia-filled evening of jokes and sketches.
This time the theme is “back in the day” with subjects ranging from when television had only three channels to how cheap drinks used to be.
Quincy said: “In this show I will be doing the majority of the stand-up along with Curtis Walker. I also have guests on the night who I will be interviewing.”
Quincy described the show as a cross between Alan Carr’s Chatty Man and Dave Chappelle.
It will feature sketches and a larger-than-life dance with moves spanning across four decades, from the sixties to the nineties.
Quincy said: “You have that mix of Afro-Caribbean and East End culture and the two of them go quite well. With my shows I always blend the acts and I have international acts. We are all naturally jokers.”
He started his Comedy Lounge seven years ago as an answer to the dearth of comedy in his native Newham.
Quincy said that comedy seems to suit east London well.
He explained: “The East End is quite tough and, throughout the hardship and perseverance of everyday life in Newham, you have to look at things and laugh about them. I think that’s what makes comedy so popular; it’s in our DNA.”
The show starts at 8pm and is for over-18s only. Tickets priced at £12.50 can be booked on 0844 357 2625.
