Are you a frustrated comedian?

1 June 2009
This year London’s Comedy Store is 25 years old. In the 1980s the club established itself as a prime hotspot to see the new wave of alternative comedians such as Ben Elton, Jo Brand and Paul Merton. When Don Ward, the club’s owner, began his search for new acts, he placed adverts in trade magazines to find people in other professions bored with their current work who desired to pick up a microphone. “I was flooded with applications after I put adverts into magazines for grocers and builders saying 'are you the funniest person doing the wrong job?'," he said. There must be a few frustrated comedians in the world of procurement, so we want to give you a chance to express yourselves on the SM blog. I’ve posted a joke below to get you started – Q. Why don’t vampires make good goalkeepers? A. Because they are afraid of crosses. I admit it won’t be difficult, but I challenge you to do better.
