Comedy baby yeah – Chris Ramsey

Chris Ramsey came and performed at the Leicester Square London and he was highly amusing.  However he did refer a lot of jokes about his baby so always using his baby as comical material. This is why I titled my review ‘Comedy baby yeah’ .  So even though his comedy was based mostly on his baby and other family members he really was funny.  I especially liked the part where he was talking about his baby’s pooh situation and cream carpet moment.  Chris really did rock the Leicester Square London theatre stage with his humour and he did not need any tricks or props to make him more entertaining.  I personally think Chris is a very much up and coming rising modern comedian and I think he has what is takes to be as big as some of the older comedians that have been around for decades. I think also what makes Chris so appealing is that he is a genuine nice man.

I managed to get a photo with him afterwards as well and he was really nice. Plus love his comical pose with me.

Code your cocktail – The Bletchley

I feel privileged and I and others from Love Pop Ups London had to the pleasure to attend a soft launch of Lollipops new bar called The Bletchley.

The Bletchley the wartime cocktail bar

Upon entering the bar I was blown away as I really did feel like I had travelled back into time back to the war with it’s dark lit atmosphere and the noise of air raid sirens going off and everyone dressed in war time uniforms.  Everyone is given a war jacket to wear to make making people feel like your in the war down in a bar basement.

Which Agent name will you be given?

All agents (drinkers) are asked to choose their favourite colour. My favourite colour is pink so I was called ‘Agent Pink’ for the night. Now onto the fun part of ordering my cocktail. Continue reading

You can leave your hat on! – Kurious Kittens

Kurious Kittens was my first ever strip show I have ever attended and I was quite apprehensive from the beginning and nervous in what we was going to encounter but yet curious.

Upon arriving at Kurious Kittens we see a line full of eager ladies yearning to see hot blooded men.  The security man at the door that was checking us in was quite abrupt with us girls why I don’t know but I felt he was unpleasant plus my name was missing from the list for some strange reason.   Continue reading

Brick by Brick – The Art of the Brick: DC Legends

Bang!, Wallop! Pow!, Kaboom! The Art of the Brick: DC Legends is the most eye striking art exhibition I have ever gone to and it took me back to my childhood years.   Even before upon entering this exhibition the buildings outer walls are all covered with comic story strips and DC Legend characters.

Joker at the cinema

I walked through the entrance and sitting right in front of my eyes is The Joker sitting in a chair with 80’s 3D glasses on and eating popcorn (yellow lego bricks) with a spare chair next to him and a spare pair of glasses well what can I say but I am a kid and I just had to sit next to him, as “I’m Joanne, fun and silly at the same time”.

Behind the Joker was some benches and a small cinema screen which you could sit down and watch some movie shorts that star lego characters. Continue reading

Firstly Prince Edward Theatre is in my opinion is one of the most loveliest theatres in London. The seats are bright red, very comfy and quite spacious. The balconies above all elaborate with it’s design. I especially loved the miniature ones that come of from the main grand circle which these ones sit from 2 to 4 people.  Continue reading

Drinking the in dark – Pitch Black

Upon entering Pitch Black I felt like I had been time-warped back to the 70’s era with the décor and furnishings in the large space which is quite surreal.  The owner greets us all with a glass of champagne to start the night off with the lights on so we can all mingle and get to know each other.
We are then all then led into a different room. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to feel in sitting in a dark room with strangers and tasting drinks without knowing what they are. There is numerous colourful sofas and stalls with tables in the room to choose from with tables with glow in the dark drink mats on them.  Continue reading

Magical delight of shapes & colour – Magical Lantern: Explore the Silk Road

The Magical Lantern: Explore the Silk Road is a spectacular fusion of art, heritage and culture which is set outside.

This is it’s second year and this year the lanterns created scenes from Europe to China. There was even a scene on Aladdin. All the lanterns were spectacular and full of colour. I especially loved the lanterns which were next to the water as the reflections hitting the water looked stunning. I also love the massive panda bear with its beady green eyes.
