With its mega regeneration project, King's Cross reached for the stars and has become an area finally fit for kings. What more evidence do you need than the Star of Kings pub? Bringing you a new dining experience every three months, there is no room for yawning in the court. There is, however, lots of room for laughing, because aside from the food, they also boast a rich heritage of music and entertainment.
On the 27th May step down into the basement for Victorian style entertainment brought up to date for the twenty-first century. The long standing and popular tradition of variety shows are brought to a staggeringly comic realisation in The Spectacular Spectrum of Now. From 7.30pm onwards experience a night of audio clips, comedy shorts, live acts, and musical merriment inspired by yesteryear.
There is no need to book, just pay £5 at the door or £3 for concessions. First on stage will be Holy Burn, a stand-up comedian, actor, and officially trained clown. She will be followed by Joe Rowntree, who unfortunately does not give out free fruit pastels, but is non the less a very funny presenter and writer, who gave Anne Robinson many of her snooty put downs to contestants on the Weakest Link.
Then the Twins Macabre will perform dark comedy sketches for those with a twisted sense of humour. You will also get to see comedy actor Cassie Atkinson, and a presentation of clips from the Honky Bonk Comrades.
