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.

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

Welcome to the Salsa Rapido Method 09/01/2017
The last two weeks I’ve been gradually integrating the new Blend Format at Camden.
It’s a new way of operating an early week evening that literally ‘blends’ the party and the classes creating an atmosphere of buzz. Fantastic to participate, engaging to watch.
It’s taken a long time to create and I’ve waited until we’re back in Gabeto (formerly The Cuban)
So what’s Blend Format all about?
Within an evening of two and a half hours e.g. 7.30pm - 10pm there’s 105 minutes of tuition fulfilling the needs of beginners through to advanced. This is presented in 15 or 30 minute sessions, Whole group active interspaced with Free Dance time.
There’s constant music and a buzzy mixing and mingling as groups come and go.
Come for the evening, stay for the evening, dance for the evening, socialise for the evening.

Why?
The world has changed!
Our classes are aimed at intelligent career minded people who want to wake up fresh the next day. More and more people respect the ‘not on a school night’ lifestyle. Blend means that dancers don’t have to sacrifice their free dance after the classes for an early finish, as there’s a significant amount of free dance opportunity during the evening.

I’ve spent over twenty years developing salsa teaching so people can learn quicker and better, so Blend has to offer real advantages for tuition.
The free dance sections allow techniques to be discussed, digested and practiced before another load of info arrives. After the free dance you’ll return to the session refreshed in mind and body :-) Finally, Spoiler Alert, the best way to learn salsa is to dance salsa! Freestyle salsa is where you find out if you know something or not.

There’s no doubt that Blend is a long way from the traditional evening class format but I think you’ll find it a rewarding learning experience, more fun and more social.
Whenever people try something new there’s always a little resistance between the familiar and unfamiliar. I know I’ve got form. The 1-Day Intensive courses that seems a familiar part of the salsa scene was once unthinkable. Until I did in 2003.
Enjoy Blend and please let me know what you think :-) Alastair
We're Back!!!
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.

Join Moe, DeLarry and Me for a bunch of classes and fun

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.
If you've been on the course recently and would be kind enough to review it please go to

Thanks in advance :-)
