There were some sparkles this year, there was also a lot more misses than one would have expected. I won’t name and shame the misses, but the words ‘experimental’ were used about a few of the comedians in a way that isn’t positive.

5 Star Comedy Preview

By   /  April 27, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs, The Liberal Agenda  /  1 Comment

The 5 Star Comedy preview is easily the best comedy preview show in the coemedyfest line up. It has the 10 best international talents which means you are guaranteed an excellent night out with none of the awkward moments of locals stumbling and struggling on stage. While that’s fun, that’s a more Monday night at open mic sadism, this was held on a Wednesday night and I’m wanting bang for my buck midweek.

THEATRE REVIEW: Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat – 4.5 stars

By   /  April 20, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs, The Liberal Agenda  /  2 Comments

I never thought for one second that I would be a lover of live musical theatre, but having a 7 year old daughter changes that perspective. The pure magic and joy she gets out of going into the City at night with me to watch singing and dancing on the stage of the magnificent Civic is a priceless moment that makes me Dad of the year while keeping her relatively quiet for 2 hours.

It’s a win win.

Happy Easter – let’s crucify consumerism

By   /  April 15, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs, The Liberal Agenda  /  22 Comments

For me Easter isn’t about the rebirth of the Christ child as human manifestation of God, it’s about the largest unbroken block of holiday time we all get. For me Easter is about family, about friends, about spending quality time with the people in your life who the busyness of working for the man robs us of.
