Now we get to find out why these men of the cloth were in such demand at social functions with the baldly titled ‘Some Vicars With Jokes’, a half hour of genial clerics cracking wise and acting the goat. And that’s pretty much all there is to tell. The wisecracks themselves are, shall we say, of a certain vintage, and all sound as if they’ve been ripped from the Dave Allen jokebook, but there are at least couple you might find yourself slipping into your own repertoire.
The decision to place the drollery against a flat, putty-coloured, computer generated backdrop is rather offputting, but the saintly stand-ups are good enough company to give this a look. Pick of the bunch is Reverend Paul Turp of St Leonard’s in Shoreditch who comes across like a depressive Micky Flanagan by way of Harold Pinter.
The London Loom
This weaving school in Haggerston comes from Francesca Kletz and Brooke Dennis, a duo who fell in love with freestyle weaving and decided to showcase why. Classes (Japanese and tapestry) last from between one and half hours to five hours, with materials included.
Venue says: “Tapestry workshop, Thursday May 4! £55 - and you keep the loom!”
