On Saturday 27th February my wife and I attended a fund raising event for the Funzi and Bodo Trust. The Charity was set up in 2006 by one of my wife’s colleagues to help provide schools, clinics and other much needed resources for the people of this specific area in Kenya. You can find out more about the trust here www.funzi.org.uk
The entertainer that had been booked for the evening was John Archer (Comedy, Magic and a bit of Ukulele) www.john-archer.com
The evening was a lot of fun with some much needed funds being raised for a really great cause. I can honestly say that I was in pain by the end of the evening from laughing so hard and for so long. John Archer is quite simply one of the funniest and talented showmen I have seen in a long time. If you ever get the chance to see him perform, grab the opportunity with both hands. You will not regret it for a moment. This guy held the audience in the palm of his hand and didn’t waver one iota. His magic was outstanding, his comedy was hilarious and his demeanour on stage was captivating.
I wasn’t there in a professional capacity by any stretch of the imagination, but I was asked to take a couple of shots for the event organisers. Here are a few snaps that I took from the table where we were seated. A brilliant evening indeed.
