Comedy Hour
Our host Fonda Cox presents our comedy hour with our friends...

Julie Jepson
Julie burst onto the comedy circuit only last year when she reached the final of the Funny Women Comedy Awards 2005 on only her 3rd gig.

Since then she has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, the Brighton Comedy festival as well as being invited onto the Funny Women National theatre tour.

She regularly performs in comedy clubs up and down the country. Ms. Jepson is an arresting and animated comedic presence. She mixes bubbly, conversational and wonderfully pithy stage patter with an array of wonderful comic voices whilst persuasively guiding the punter through her curious worldview with a disarming charm.

David Meech
My name is David Meech and I was born and raised in the Deep South West of england - fleeing to the city as soon as I learnt to drive a tractor! These days you can find me yapping on at unsuspecting audiences across London and the UK about anything and everything from my love of bingo to the state of the world we live in! Camp, filthy and full of west country charm, I have been doing stand up since July 2005

Rosie Wilby
Rosie regularly performs on the LGBT circuit at clubs such as Comedy Camp in London and at festivals including Pride, Homotopia and Glasgay. In 2007, she performed at ‘An L Of A Night' at Victoria Theatre in Halifax with Rhona Cameron and at The Gay Comedy Night at The Y Theatre in Leicester with Mrs Barbara Nice. She was also part of The Queer Choir in the late 90s, performing at the ICA, Drill Hall, Union Chapel, Pride, Connaught Hall and more.

We then went on to release our second single 'One More Night Alone' which went in at number 13 shortly followed by our debut album 'Times Like These' which is out in the shops now and available to download on I-Tunes.

We are currently writing and producing some new stuff which we will post to get your opinons on. Thanks to all of our fans and all our new friends!

make your mark, support the night, raise awareness and help us support the International Day Against Homophobia


In a world where 77 countries punish women, men and children because of their sexuality an International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) provides a platform for everyone to make a powerful statement to demand improvements for peoples quality of life Overseas and in the UK. 

On the 17th May 1990 the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders. Now IDAHO exists to provoke action to end Homophobia.


Throughout history and in a large part of the world today, LGBT have been under attack with constant pressure to remain “closeted” and removed from mainstream society. Every living person has a sexuality and this is part of who we are as individuals. Activities and events that help raise the profile of the existence of the UK and global LGBT community also help to demonstrate that sexuality does not make you less of a person.
