Laughter Factory lets the sparks fly

Comedy club impresses at JamBase

The Laughter Factory needs no introduction really as Dubai’s only regular comedy circus. This month’s trio were exceptionally sparky (as you would be if you were staying in the Madinat for a few weeks). East London Jeff Innocent kicked off proceedings, playing on his distinctive look – that of an inner city bouncer who’d found an alternative religion at a festival ten years ago – and rounded it off with a routine about the difference Crocs made to his love life. Ava Vidal (a regular on UK’s Mock the Week) proved that women can be just as filthy and funny as men, while headline act Glenn Wool pulled a fantastically political, Bill Hicks-style rant out from under his hippy hat, delighted in the novelty of being able to smoke on stage.
