September 14th Review: Chris Conroy, JellyBean Martinez, Stakatto Blue
Howdy, firstly let me say the September 14th show has been receiving lots of positive reviews, we had a lot of new faces and a nice batch of old faces. One of our performers pulled out with this mad cold that’s going around at the moment; however, she was replaced by one of our favorites. I’m glad to say that we SOLD OUT again and we gave Vendetta a great send off so thank you guys. I ( owner of Enterteasement / writer of report) sadly wasn’t at the show so I can’t really give a full report of what happened. However, from what I’m reading on the survey’s and from a few people I’ve spoken to I’m told this was one of our best shows yet and I’m getting glowing reports about:
- Chris Conroy as being very friendly, funny and got the crowd going superbly well.
- Stakatto Blue tore the roof off the place with her LED Hula Hoop routine
- JellyBean Martinez brought the house down with his unique blend of comedy & singing
If you have not filled in the survey please do because all feedback is appreciated, listened to and considered. It’s totally anonymous and is only 9 questions long.
I’m getting lovely reports about how Star handled the Stag do and surprisingly how the Stag do were really well behaved. I’m also hearing about “The Vibe” in that we create a nice friendly vibe. Someone once said “they felt so relaxed watching our show it was like watching it in her front living room” We love that and the performers love that they can jump off stage and interact with the audience. I’m also hearing that the audience were a bit scared at first with Chris because they thought they might get picked on. At Enterteasement we know this is your Saturday night and we want you to come back so we don’t book those types of acts who will be horrible to you. So next time, sit back, relax and if the compere talks to you feel free to chat back. I’m told that once you got going and believed Chris wasn’t Frankie Boyle in disguise you opened up and gave the acts a good response so thanks for being nice to my acts!
We’ve also had some feedback about the venue not being big enough, not enough chairs and the set-up of those chairs being cabaret over theare style. I want to point out firstly that we really appreciate your feedback and we do listen. The Admiral Bar is our 4th venue in 2 years and we moved because we listened to our customers. The Admiral have been great with us and they believed in us back in the days when we were bringing in 60-70 people. Now we’ve grown and we’re managing to fill the place we’ve even personally purchased 14 chairs for the Admiral and we’re trying and get another 6 but unfortunately that’s the best we can do. If we moved to a bigger venue, we’d lose our intimate feel and truth be told…there aren’t any other venues that are city center, with a good PA system, stage, lighting & a changing room. The Admiral staff have also been very accommodating with us and there team are very laid back and friendly which fits with our ethos.
There seemed to be a problem with some people paying with paypal via Eventbrite. If this happens could you let us know what it is. We’ve used a few ticket systems in the past and Eventbrite is the easiest to use for us and for our customers. However if it’s causing any problems we’re happy to leave them. As Jerry McGuire would say “Help me Help you”
Special Thanks to

The Stag Do: After a bad start of turning up late and having a chat they settled in and behaved nicely and joined in on the fun.
Kate for coming back after a few months away and bringing a lovely crowd, dressing up and being marvellous as always. When I saw her she said, “I’d get up and give you a hug…but I can’t”
