HAVING A GIGGLE WITH JUNIOR SIMPSON


L


ove thy Neighbour is the message comedian Junior Simpson is spreading ahead of his


performance at Watford‘s The Giggle Inn Comedy Club on Sunday May 1. The Luton born comic spoke to us about the


rivalry between the two towns. He said: ―When you look at both places there are similarities in terms of population, etc. I know it‘s mainly a football related thing but seeing as I‘m from Luton I don‘t know that much about the game.‖ Having displayed his diplomacy Junior took us


through a whirlwind of world travel, supporting our armed forces, being single and much more. His career has seen him appear on radio, TV


and theatre as well as travelling the world doing his stand-up routine. ―I‘m off to the French Rivera in April for a few gigs then off to Mumbai for a couple of weeks as The Comedy Store has a new club there, before hitting Watford. ―I‘ve known the Giggle Inn‘s owner, Phil


Butler, for years and I know it‘s going to be a fun night because he‘s put it all together. Having said that I‘m also expecting to have put out the chairs, do my slot, help behind the bar and chauffeur people home at the end of the night. ―My set changes from week to week. I‘m single


at the moment so I feel I‘m in a great place to be bitter about relationships. If I don‘t get lucky before the audience can expect one angry brother.‖ On a more serious note he spoke about his


trips to entertain troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. ―It‘s easy for people to sit in a wine bar or a


pub and criticise or praise the troops out there. But until you‘ve been there and experienced the heat, dust and danger they live with daily you can‘t imagine how hard their lives are.


Personally I think they are the greatest fighting force in the world and it was great to go out there and show them people are thinking about them back home.‖ Junior encouraged people to come and check


out the show. ―Let‘s face it there‘s not much entrainment in Watford on a Sunday night so pop down and check out the gig. It should be a great night and if there‘s something you don‘t want to miss on TV Sky+ it and watch it when you get back.‖ Junior Simpson will be appearing at the Giggle


Inn, at The Pump House Theatre and Arts Centre, Local Board Road, Lower High Street, Watford, Hertfordshire, WD17 2JP on Sunday May 1. To book tickets call 01923 35 11 07.
