The BIG COMEDY NIGHT will be back!
See you in October 2020
Andy Pethick and Nicholas Shaun met in a small back room in Tring, brought together by a love of comedy, a desire to perform standup and a distinct lack of comic talent. Eight weeks later, having been given guidance and encouragement by Mr Logan Murray (a veteran of the standup circuit), they stepped out on stage to see if they could make a room full of strangers laugh out loud (while remaining fully clothed). Fast forward a few years and Andy and Nicholas formed the Blithering Idiot Group who promote and perform stand up comedy in and around The Chilterns.
Andy writes carefully crafted jokes about supermarkets and scout leaders, all delivered in a world weary style that makes Jack Dee seem rather jolly. He is well known for wearing a suit on stage, but seldom wears a hat. Aside from looking debonair (his words), he believes that if nobody finds him funny, at least his mum will be proud.
Nicholas is both a happy dreamer, and consummate bedwetter. He hopes one day to perform live at The Apollo, but recognises this will most likely be a Greek taverna. He has gigged in numerous pubs in the local area and was once invited to perform in Sweden - to an audience who, it became apparent halfway through his act, did not understand a word of English.
