Black Cat Comedy

Some Things Just Aren’t Funny…

UPDATED: See in-house promoter Tallie Kane’s reply in the comments below.

…And that includes the cancellation of tonight’s gig that should have featured Tony Law, recent support on the Stewart Lee tour. I’d like to send my commiserations to the Black Cat Comedy club.

domestic empire wishes Paul and the gang all the best in resolving this current unpleasant situation and a speedy return to doing what they do best, namely hosting the best new and established stand up comics on the circuit. And well done for hanging on to your camera there Mr.Bunkin

One Response to Black Cat Comedy

  1. Tallie Kane says:

    As the inhouse promoter of the Fox I thought I’d just leave a quick note concerning this, as I have seen it referred to within the community and online, unfortunately.

    Although unfortunate, this was a one-off, and the soundman was relieved of his position as we deemed his behaviour to be completely inappropriate and no longer wished to use him. We have changed to two of Southsea’s most reliable and lovely soundmen, Alex and Phil who are best known from their work at the Wedgewood rooms. Since then we haven’t had any trouble.

    In regards to The Fat Fox manager, his reaction was as the result of a misunderstanding which I have heard has been apologised for, in person, to Kyle Bunkin.

    It upsets me to think that a community as strong as Southsea dismisses a whole venue due to one individual whom I had unfortunately given a chance only to be proven otherwise. We have had no trouble since then, and are striving to open our space to outside promoters and give them the support that we can provide.

    Yours, Tallie.
