Amy Gallivan reviews Jongleurs On The Road at The Corn Exchange, Ipswich
A mid-week comedy evening made for a whole barrel of laughs as four brave comics stepped up to take the mic within the Grand Hall at The Corn Exchange last night.
With an almost full house, the audience did not know what they were in store for as the Jongleurs ‘On The Road’ crew let loose with their hilarious antics and gags.
First on the bill was multi award-winning comedian and compere for the evening, Tim FitzHigham, who generated a few early laughs when he revealed he was genuinely from East Anglia, living in a small village near Diss.
FitzHigham, who named Ipswich a ‘metropolis’, being a Diss native, recounted tales from his earlier experiences of travelling via train from Diss station and the local Diss newspaper, which gained a few whoops and cheers from the Wednesday night crowd.

Next up was the superbly witty, and at times controversial, Time Out Comedy Award-winning Sean Meo, who recounted his day-to-day experiences, stories about his wife and he even threw in a few jokes about his drunken escapades.
With a crowd thoroughly warmed up, Irish comedian Eleanor Tiernan took to the stage, firstly describing her journey to the hall and her hilarious miscommunication over her job title with the taxi driver. She later went on to describe her take on what a model might be thinking as they strut down the catwalk.

The final act on the bill was Jeff Innocent, a popular and experienced stand-up comedian, who went on to say how often he was mistaken for a member of the audience or even an event bouncer, going on to describe himself as ‘looking a bit dodgy’.
Jeff, who took command of the stage, drove the crowd wild with hysterics when he spoke about his choice of pet dog and a few other controversial tales, which cannot be written in print!
