Joke-e-oke (4 stars)

This article is from 2008.

This strangely simple but effective pub game lets punters try out their favourite comedian's routine, with help from an autocue. Just like karaoke, a mix of real talent and boozy have-a-go heroes come out the woodwork to copy Richard Pryor, Dylan Moran or booby-prize Bernard Manning. Wrong accents or new twists seem to work especially well. Don't be surprised if the mini-craze spreads to a bar near you sometime soon.

The GRV, 220 2987, until 24 Aug, 9pm, free.
