AAfter their first act in June, British comedy club The Comedy Store is due to open at the Palladium at High Street Phoenix , in December.
To welcome these first-time visitors, Jarred Christmas, Jeff Innocent and Phil Nichol, to India, we decided to put their comic humour to the test on seven topics. This is what happened..
Phil: I don’t have any material on him.
Jarred: He’s the sexy guy. That’s what Italians like – they don’t care about how corrupt someone is as long as he’s good-looking. He looks good on a Vespa.
Jeff: Every day is a bad hair day for him.
Phil: Umm, I’m gonna pass the phone to Jarred...
Jarred: We went to a house party last night and had very delicious food, which was all vegetarian. I thought it was meat!
Jeff: I have not stopped eating it since I got here.
Impressions of Delhi.
Phil: I have not seen anything of Delhi. All I’ve done is been in this hotel all day giving interviews. I’ve seen someone mow the lawn and eaten lunch.
Jarred: Everyone’s vehicle seems to ask me if I have got the horn. I don’t know what that means...
Jeff: I have been asleep since I arrived.
Phil: Nothing on them.
Jarred: I dated a half-Indian woman in the UK and that was the good half. I broke up with her, but I would have been happy to keep going out with the Indian half.
Jeff: Well, I’ve had a couple of women fall in love with me here already and they are so in love, they are fasting...
Phil: I really like him. Nice guy. (sarcastic)
Jarred: Old news.
Jarred: I love the idea of being in a group of people and suddenly breaking into dance and everyone joining in. It’s a great world to live in.
Jeff: I have never seen a film for longer than five minutes… Don’t print this, I don’t want things thrown at me.. they seem unwatchable.
Phil: (Silence) Look, I do anti-comedy… I run around and shout at people… I don’t come up with quips and spur-of-the-moment stuff.
Jarred: There are like 1,000 per person. Everyone runs a newspaper here.
Jeff: I’m afraid I’ve not got anything more to say
Phil: Knock Knock. Who’s there? Dwayne. . Dwayne who?. Dwayne the bath tub, I'm dwowning
Jarred: Any of Jeff Innocent’s...
What’s the best joke you have ever heard?
Jarred: What’s orange and sound like a parrot? A carrot.
