On Thursday 30 July, Metronome hosted a pilot stand-up comedy event with Just The Tonic, as Russell Howard, Ed Byrne, Daisy Earle, Scott Bennett and Quincy took to the stage.
Last week, we were able to open Metronome’s doors to customers for the first time in months. As the UK slowly comes out of lockdown, stand-up comedy could be the next type of entertainment that will be open to the public once again. Metronome hosted a pilot comedy event with Just The Tonic, who brought a stellar line-up of comedians with them.
The Confetti Media Group team been working hard to make Metronome a safe place, with mandatory masks wherever possible, temperature checks upon entry, and social distancing measures in place, as well as numerous hand sanitiser stations.
All customers had a smooth, staggered entry into the auditorium as they found their seats and waited for the show to start. During the show, the audience kept their masks on and the comedians wore visors.
The show featured performances from comedians Quincy, Daisy Earl, Scott Bennett, Russell Howard and Ed Byrne; who was clearly very excited to be back on stage, and spoke about it after his set.
“It felt wonderful to be back on stage. I have been doing some other gigs, but people have been in their cars and people honking their horns at you is just not the same as people laughing. It’s great just to be in a room with people and being able to see a portion of their faces, but being able to hear the laughter and being able to talk to somebody directly and ask them a question and muck about with them. You realise how much you miss it.”
