Upcoming shows: Thom Foole’s Houseparty, The Old Queens Head @itsunknownuk @thomfooles

A couple of months ago I attended the Its Unknown launch party in London. It’s Unknown are  experts at creating bizarre but amazingly fun evenings based on something you kind of recognise, jazzed up a bit. DANIEL_SIMONSEN_TFHP-optimised

For over a decade Jonny Unknown & the team have been creating some of London’s most innovative nights out.  Their aim – to take people just far enough out of their comfort zone that they wholly engage and leave with a lasting impression of an extra-special occasion.

At the launch party, after quite a few drinks, I got to experienced  MUSICALBINGO and GOSPELOKE – Musical Bingo consists of regular bingo, but instead of shouting out numbers siongs are playeds ongs!maxresdefault Each round takes on a different theme of song choices, these could be based on either a decade, genre or a just a random quirky topic. The audience are then encouraged to dance and join in with this cabaret style bingo before winning  typical bingo prizes – hand whisk anyone?

And Gospeloke – is exactly what it sounds like – Karaoke, with a gospel choir!

I am working my way through all of their events and being ticked off this week is THOM FOOLE’S HOUSE PARTY . Promised are clowning, comedy, storytelling, mischief and  party games! What more could we want to deal with the midweek blues?  1510653_957196584323089_8619200879321212964_nPreviously described as “TGI Fridays meets Live At The Apollo via Little Britain” – following this quote it says  that if you think about all these things mixed together, you’ll have some idea what to expect – I am not sure I do….but I am sure it’s going to be fun.

Special guest, Daniel Simonsen – star of Vic and Bob’s House of Fool’s

Host, Oh Standfast – “The next generation of offbeat comedy gold”
