Are you not doing Lausanne anymore? Aah, the days of Funny Laundry in the pub next to FNAC...

That's a blast from the past....it was a deep, black hole in the fabric of space and time, disguised as a seedy nightclub....

Lausanne shows should be back on in the autumn. Normal service hopefully resumed. Apologies, there has been some not inconsiderable damage to infrastructure, from storms up here in Zurich, this year

yes a blast from the past, early days, but that's when you had that feeling that you'd discovered a cool thing only few knew of, and entry was also cheaper if I remember.


looking forward to your return to Lausanne, and some acts worth watching!

Price went down to 28 francs after the crash: poor old corporate employees on UK wages who thought they'd lucked-out when they got their placements....bless 'em. Prices are always kept at the lowest possible: more fool me! As English speaking comedy has been completely ignored by just about everyone in Switzerland (apart from when an act too big to ignore has been over, and then, when written about or interviewed, never linked to me or my work, so no one knew I existed...) it has always been silly expensive to bring it over and run it: the system here is not conducive to real entrepreneurs, sadly. Only rich ones. ANYWAY, overnight, it appears as though it's the flavour of month, though the majority of what is being offered doesn't leave a very good taste in the mouth, from what I know of what's being presented.... it's too easy to hold a mic on stage, steal some gags off reddit, and declare yourself "A comedian", these days.....which is why there is so much crap out there. In London, there are supposedly 15,000 comedians now: probably no more than a few hundred actually are, or ever will be. Hobby comics they are called, or Plastics. Shows will be back in Lausanne: and only the best of the bunch will be on show. As always.
