And now for something a little bit similar...

Because following the success of last year’s comedy sketch night at the Headgate raising money for the Mayor’s Charities, they’re doing it all again.

I Wish To Register a Complaint was the idea of councillor Tim Young to help his wife, Julie, in her mayoral year.

With his family having a background in showbusiness, the popular Young Brothers, and Tim himself often dabbling in the local comedy circuit, he decided to put together a top notch cast of actors, stand-ups and performers to create a show celebrating the very best in British sketch comedy.

As well as selling out the theatre, another feather in his cap was getting older brother, Matthew to take part, and for this year’s show both the younger Young Brothers are making a welcome return.

Matthew says: “When Tim asked me to do it again, I agreed on one condition, that I could be behind the scenes this time and I’m enjoying the challenge, especially moving from one sketch to the other.

“The joy of this is the talent I’m working with.”

This year that includes Darren Gooding, Nicola Goodchild, Dave Hughes, Carl Denham, Joe Geddis, Claire Morris and former head of music at the Sixth Form College, Nigel Hildreth.

“Nigel was one of the hits last year,” Tim adds, “and we decided we needed to get him more involved this around so in terms of the musical interludes, he’s been given a free rein.”

And they’ve also changed some of the source material for their sketches.

“I say you cannot have enough of Monty Python,” Tim smiles, “but it appears other people disagree so we’ve also plundered a whole host of other shows like Fry and Laurie, Mitchell and Webb, Smack the Pony and Not the Nine o’clock News.”

Is This the Right Show for an Argument? is at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester, on February 25, at 7.30pm. With bad language and adult themes, tickets are £10, available from 01206 366000.
