sprite-comedy  Stand Up Comedy and Quillarious


Hi I'm taking a break from Quillarious on Mondays for a while. Feel free to join the facebook group 'Quillarious' and I'll post when I've some news.
Thanks for your interest and support Alastair






Introducing Quillarious! A brand new comedy format!
Quillarious is what happens when a room full of people attempt to write five minutes of stand up collectively in an hour. It’s panel show meets comedy workshop as MC Alastair Sadler leads two teams of point hungry audience through a bunch of exercises designed to fluff out the funnies. Will we succeed? Who knows, but we’ll have a bunch of fun along the way.
Experience required = None! Admission = £0 Embarrassment = None!
Just a huge sense of being at the cutting edge of comedy, joy, well being, happiness, and lowering the possibility of nuclear war (none declared at time of publication) ... and it’s funny.
7.30pm start - 10pm
We're upstairs so use the bar on the ground floor to save a trip :-)

Why not bring Quillarious into your office? More fun than you've ever had in the meeting room (excluding that Xmas party!)

sprite-comedy  What is Quillarious

Introducing Quillarious! A brand new comedy format!
Quillarious is what happens when a room full of people attempt to write five minutes of stand up collectively in an hour.
It’s panel show meets comedy workshop as MC Alastair Sadler leads two teams of point hungry audience through a bunch of exercises designed to fluff out the funnies.
Will we succeed? Who knows, but we’ll have a bunch of fun along the way.
Experience required = None!

...Just a huge sense of being at the cutting edge of comedy, joy, well being, happiness, and lowering the possibility of nuclear war (none declared at time of publication)

"... and the march of a 1000 mile starts with a single joke then gets really silly and we're there in no time :-)" Chairman Mao NOT!

sprite-comedy  Quillarious for corporate events


When it’s a good idea to reward your team with a fun event, the
challenge is to find something that’s fun , new , different that may
even be productive.
Well here it is ... Quillarious the comedy writing game show!

Premise: We use whatever time’s available (usually 90mins or an
afternoon) to collectively write and perform five minutes of stand up
comedy.
The theme of the comedy can be random or a corporate message
e.g. a mission statement. Quillarious is highly adaptable to your
ideas.
We divide into teams, find the funnies and then connect them up in
a back story. These are presented in our ‘Stand Up Challenge.’
And finally, our awards ceremony is where the best contributor
receives one of the highest accolades ever created, a Quillarei!

Why Quillarious:
This is primarily about fun and enjoyment.

Points regarding the underlying psychology can be made if
desired and it’s possible to use Quillarious as part of you
team building strategy.

Quillarious is a challenging activity that’s out of most
people’s comfort zone. By ‘going there’ as a group,
individuals practice supporting each other and reassess
each other's talents.

Creativity is necessary in any problem solving situation. The
clues are there but connecting them up is tough under
competitive or time pressures. Quillarious achieves success
through creating a friendly creative environment, enjoying
failure, but keeping everyone working towards the goal.

sprite-news Events:

Following the success of Deep Salsa this Ocober here's another date not to be missed.
The NEW 'Deep Salsa for Intermediates' Salsa Rapido Intensive course.

This course is not and bunch of moves, styling or footwork. It’s for dancers who are looking to energise their salsa through looking at things in a different way. It uses models and exercises that you may not be familiar with, but they allow you to discover the underlying psychology and ways to change the way you dance if necessary.

Salsa Rapido® Method:
The ethos of Salsa Rapido is the same at all levels.It’s the Fast, Fun and Progressive approach to salsa. In other words I want to get you better faster, while having a heap of fun. If you think teaching should be a dry, boring or an authoritarian experience, be warned you’ll hate this! It's fun and challenging.

Are you intermediate?
My definition of an intermediate is someone who regularly dances freestyle salsa.
I’m the first to admit that’s a wide group of levels but I’m working on the basis that those who dance in clubs should know enough to lead/ follow and can operate at ‘club speed’. Improvers can handle the info but struggle to implement things as fast simply because they haven't had enough ‘real time’ dance floor experience.
If you’re not sure call me 07939012231

On Sunday 29th July, join us as we will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Thames Salsa Cruise! Yes, that’s right, we’ve been running the Thames Salsa Cruise for a whopping 20 whole years this summer! Two decades of dancing on the decks of MV Royalty, up and down the River to the music of DJ Felicidad and partying all the way and what fun it’s been :-) The Thames, the skyline and faces have changed but the boat, the fun, and the energy is better than ever so if you’re new to this event or want to revisit it, we would love you to come and share this fabulous moment with us!

Come and salsa the River as we cruise from the Festival Pier Southbank to the Barrier and back. Watch the sunset as you sip a drink on the back deck, then see the River sparkle as the city lights up; all the while listening to some great salsa music to entice you back to the dance floor.
Four hours of dancing and fun; what a great way to spend a summer evening!
Departs Festival Pier by the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank at 6.45pm, returning at 10.50pm

Get your ticket early because we will probably sell out!
Groups (5+) cost £15 and the regular advanced price is £18. (£22 cash on the day)

Here's my recent review of a Bar + Block Kings Cross – Simply Great Steak

Within earshot of the buzz emanating from bustling Kings Cross station, on York Road, is Bar + Block. The buzz continues inside, as if London’s tourists, shopper and business types have paused for a moment for a drink and a chat at the bar before stepping back into the hussel and bussel of their lives.
We’re seated in the restaurant section behind the bar

After months in the wilderness of Camden Market we're back at the venue formerly known as The Cuban and now called Gabeto. It's a new clean shiny bar in the same building and the decor's more London and less Havana.

Some of the classes will be in Gabeto bar and some in Gabeto Studio AKA Alchemy but come to the bar first.

NEW START TIME OF 7.30pm we will be starting on time with or without you so please check in early.

New Pricing: £10 per evening. We'll be introducing a Cafe Nero style loyalty card.

I'd like to thank everyone for their support over this summer and welcome everyone back to get this night buzzing.
I've set up a new section on the site for Tripadvisor reviews of the 1-Day Intensive Course.
