His dialogue inbetween was witty, ranging from topics such as Ebay and his voluminous leather trousers.
David Johns is probably the most relaxed man ever seen on stage.
His excellent visual humour had the audience giggling.
He relied mainly on the crowd for inspiration and, despite a couple of lulls, his natural stage presence lifted the mood.
There was nothing fluffy about Ninia Benjamin.
Her frank and “no prisoners” style made the Bury audience squirm, although cheeky Benjamin struggled with what was quite a tough crowd which was not quite ready for her strong language.
She managed to lift herself out of it to get the room laughing when she left.
The whole event was compered deftly by Alex Horne who has a frenetic style and some fantastic one-liner's, and managed to have a bit of fun with sound.
