Crowd Surfing at Comic Boom

We saw March out with a wonderfully surprising and slightly surreal night at Comic Boom at Komedia (www.komedia.co.uk/brighton). Iain Stirling rocked the headline spot - no surprise. But our new to Boom local comics Rue Barratt and Nick Dent were just shockingly brilliant. And last minute stand-in comic Ben Target turned it surreal when he wandered off stage, stood on a chair in the audience, persuaded all 270 of them to stand up, raise their hands above their heads and then he crowd surfed gently across the room. If I could run any comedy club in the world I'd still run this one.
