Laughs All Round: On the Pebbles Festival Stand-Up Reviewed

Cassi reviews one of the most anticipated events of On the Pebbles, a stand-up show put on by Comedy Society.

As part of the much-loved On the Pebbles festival, the St Andrews Comedy Society ran a side-splitting stand-up event in the casual setting of Sandy’s Bar last Sunday. With near 10 routines, each unique and hilarious in their own way, the stand-up was well worth the £3 entry, and had the entire crowd roaring with unrestrained laughter.

Despite arriving reasonably early, the venue was already packed to the brim, just barely offering enough seats for the number of guests. Yet, the crowded bar only emphasised the enthusiasm the audience had for the show. With no stage to separate the audience and the comedians, the night was characterised by a nonchalant, intimate atmosphere, as the performers worked only with the microphone and their wit. From the very words said by the host of the night, Andrew Martin, the energy of the crowd was apparent, as they cheered as soon as the show began. The audience was immediately engaged by Andrew, as he playfully mucked around and teased a few audience members who unluckily sat at the front, with several jokes about his Mo-vember moustache.

The first act that was soon introduced was that of Harrison Rice, who was clearly very at home in front of the audience. With his relaxed manner, he quickly established a warm and close relationship between himself and the audience. Unfortunately, the set was over too soon, but his performance proved to be a fantastic way to set off the sets of the night. The second performer, Sasha Gisborne was radically different to Harrison, with his dramatic entrance onto the stage. Despite his choice not to use the microphone, Sasha had a formidable presence, and was not afraid to venture into the more controversial topics, poking fun at issues like abortion.

It was clear from Sasha’s performance and his banter with his fellow comedians of the strong relationships between the different members of the Comedy Society, emphasised with the subsequent set by Aoife McAtamney, who mocked the whirlwind of Sasha’s performance. Aoife brought a fresh feeling to the night, as her set was obviously new, as she spoke about her very recent graduation. Her performance was entirely unique in terms of content in comparison to the other sets of the night, with her whole set centred around on her hilarious but slightly strange experiences on the app Fiverr.

One of the highlights of the first act was the set by Adam Bumstead. Whilst starting with a classic opening, “So, I’ve been going on a few dates recently…”, he preceded to continually upturn what was expected, offering very sophisticated humour despite his quieter energy. Kicking off the second act was Joe Mendenhall, the sketch representative. Whilst similarly embodying a quieter, perhaps even nervous energy, Joe skillfully wielded this shyness into his comedic persona through his series of small jokes with killer punchlines. Despite his dipping into hilarious topics like the nine lives of cats, to Kanye West, to wheelchairs, Joe created a lot of laughs through his deliberate pauses, building humorous through rhyme and repetition before neatly tying up the several threads of his sert into one brilliant joke for his finale.

One of the concluding acts of the night featured the witty Sarah Clark, her confidence and charisma immediately evident from the get-go. Her performance was very candid, openly exploring more “nasty” topics, as she herself described. She likewise dabbled in repetition for comedic effect, such as ‘No-Nut November’. Following her was Paulo Flordia, only recently, as the host Andrew put it, ‘comedy de-virginised’, as this show was his second ever stand-up performance. Paulo mixed in a few different mediums to his act, as he introduced a little bit of karaoke that saw the rest of Sandy’s joining in, before moving on to a running joke involving a heavy Scottish accent.

The night was brought to a close with sets by Joseph Ickowski and ComSoc President Christoph. Joking about his experiences as a 2nd generation Italian-American, Joe’s set was fairly wholesome and child-friendly compared to the themes that coloured the previous performances. Once again, his set was a casual, intimate one that appealed to the audience through the reliability of family antics. On the other-hand, Christoph bought the night to an explosive end with a brilliant mockery of both millennial and generation z humour with a dramatic, loud performance.

All in all, the stand-up on Sunday was worth above and beyond the £3 entry. The wide-range of brilliant humour saw many audience members leave clutching their sides for air, but still excited for the next show. It cannot be recommended more highly for anyone keen for a casual night of laughs.

  9. Thanks for revealing your ideas with this blog. Likewise, a fantasy regarding the banking institutions intentions when talking about foreclosed is that the bank will not getreceive my payments. There is a degree of time which the bank will require payments here and there. If you are far too deep inside the hole, they should commonly call that you pay the actual payment in full. However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of repayments at all. In the event you and the loan company can have the ability to work anything out, your foreclosure course of action may halt. However, in the event you continue to miss payments underneath the new plan, the foreclosed process can just pick up where it left off.

  20.–do-not-use.php is a scam
    Hi all, got scammed by this website. Saw that there were a couple of post informing about this but just wanted to give more details
    Paid for the three day offer and with the confirmation of the subscription, got two mails from and asking me to confirm my email. Didn’t pay attention and deleted them.
    I immediately canceled the subscription in without any issue and on the last day it changed to a standard membership so since it was bs site, cancelled the account as well.
    So I was happy and watching a movie when I got an sms from my card provider telling me that I got a 71.78 euros charge from fry Never heard of them, so I called my card provider and cancelled my card and will request the return of the money as well.
    Then I realized that maybe these two websites also by some miracle signed me up to a paid subscription… so I logged in… had to recover the passwords because they were not the one I used in… and surprise, did signed me up for a paid subscription without me being aware (pretty sure that somewhere during the signing process in flirt there was something checked and didn’t pay attention.). So I had to cancel subscription and account in these two other sites.
    So, sorry for the long post but in summary…. do not use at all!!!
    Yes, FLIRT.COM it is a scamming website. It sign you on multiple websites like . It bombard you with emails that you receive messages, and you need to pay to see them. After you pay you see the messages. All messages are from BOTS. No real person.
    It’s subscribing to automatic renewal and it’s hard to cancel renewal. They push you to a complicated scheme. I’m not even sure the renewal canceling works. After
