Sadowitz tour dates for 2024

Captain Crunch


The Epstein, his usual venue in Liverpool has closed, so £30odd quid for standing @ 02 Academy means I'll give it a miss.

Upstairs only at the forum, shame it's not at the Leicester Square Theatre again.

Trying to remember how big upstairs at the Forum is. He used to do a few nights in a row at Leicester Square Theatre and I'm curious why the change. Last time I saw him there was prob 2018 and somehow his act didn't seem funny anymore and I can't remember why. He was noticeably self-censoring though because there was a scary-looking man in the front row who'd been brought by friends and was clearly taking offence at something early on.

Is he getting bigger? When I saw him in Nottingham 11 years ago it was a in a shitty smallish fairly intimate comedy club. Now he's at the Theatre Royal.

had ticket for his last cambridge show and just didn't go. £30 down the toilet. i need professional help but they won't give it me.

Got tickets for Leeds, have never seen him live before and have never really heard or seen any of his stuff, only read bits online. Going to try and keep it that way, hopefully will enhance the experience.

Bristol Hen and Chickens is relatively small, also I imagine they might get a case of the liberal anxieties before then

Looks very much the same sort of differences in venue size with this tour as when you saw him. First time I saw Sadowitz would have been roughly the the same time as you - that was the Lounge at St David's Hall in Cardiff. That venue is often used for day concerts and with mixed standing and seating, it has a capacity of 300 or so, but this is very adaptable (basically it's open plan and can be adjusted by screens) and for him, it was probably around the 150 mark but could have been a bit less. Not long after, he was playing Bath Komedia, which I think was a sell-out (or very close) - seated capacity is around 600, I think.

On this tour, the Brighton and Leeds venues are 300-400, IIRC. Not familiar with the Theatre Royal, but that's larger. The Hen and Chicken in Bristol is a very small venue - it's often used for acts trying out pre-Fringe material and punches above its weight for who it attracts.

Given their track record, I'd be surprised.

Does he attract different types of crowd in different areas?

A lot of people say to me "What are you doing in my fucking garden, you fucking sunken-eyed, homeless chic, Joe Pasquale rip-off cunt."

Not sure about different areas but he definitely did in different venues.

I've seen him twice in Newcastle, the first time was at the Tyne Theatre & Opera house, a large venue that also attracts very mainstream comics (yer Jason Manfords etc), and I found it a very odd experience. The bar area beforehand felt like a bit of an EDL rally, and there was a definite vibe of people laughing at the racist gear in agreement more than anything else.

For whatever reason his act just didn't land that night for me at all, and I didn't particularly enjoy the experience.

I suppose he didn't enjoy it either as the next time he played Newcastle it was at The Stand comedy club, the crowd were clearly a lot more of a right-on "I'm-here-cos-of-Stewart-Lee" type audience and he was fucking amazing. Just an absolute whirlwind of grotesque self-loathing and abuse, probably the hardest I've ever laughed at anything.

This is all my perception though so could be total bollocks

Sheffield City Hall, The Forum and...The Komedia, that's a weird downsize?

Haven't seen him live since the disaster of the double-act at Reading Festival but getting spat on at The Komeda sounds great.

PaulTMA

Saw him for the first and what will be the last time last night.  Really enjoyed the first 20 or so minutes and of course the magic at the end, but didn't enjoy the atmosphere at all, especially as a fight looked like it was about to break out almost right next to me.  It's fair to say that he is attracting a decent number of complete cunts.  Obviously I asked for it by going and he's clearly a gifted comedian but I just couldn't get the point of it all.  It just felt gross.

I thought two men got up and left when he laid into Farage, but they came back a few minutes later.  Ah well.

No - as mentioned above, there's been such in the past; I wouldn't say that's unique to Sadowitz.

I've seen Sadowitz and one venue, three times and each occasion, there was a different vibe to the audience. Another time at another venue, there was again, a different vibe. With one of the former occasions, there was a very good crowd and Sadowitz looked liked he was really enjoying it - so much so, that it looked to me that he couldn't keep up the relentlessly angry mode and the performance was rather playful with a fair bit of magic.

One of my friends, who has gone with me to his gigs, has said that they find it interesting seeing how different parts of the audience react differently to different material.

The Bolton gig a few years ago also had a super mixed crowd. Some looked a bit far-right and shifty. Not many young people I'd say (20-30yrs, which myself and a friend fell into). Due to this variety, the drinks in the foyer were very hushed and conspiritorial. Such an odd vibe, it was great and slightly nervy. A middle aged man brought his Chinese partner along, who ended up walking out when the racist Chinese bits started. The man stayed and laughed. I did not know how to feel about that.

Noticed a bit during a rewatch of One Foot in the Grave recently (episode "Who Will Buy") where he's mentioned as one of the acts performing on stage before Victor.

- OK,
- Right. Then comes Jerry Sadowitz.

There's then a Sadowitz lookalike at the beginning of the next episode.

seen him a couple of times about a decade ago, both during the fringe. once in the playhouse which was my first and best experience. he said some horrible racist nonsense which a load of skinheads were laughing at. he then goes on a tirade against "our brave boys" which led to many of those skinheads leaving, the sound of the seats flapping up echoing in the auditorium.

one of my favourite bits was him recounting crushing up custard creams, putting them down his urethral opening and spunking them into a mirror. honestly it's the way he tells them...

I'd be tempted to see him at one of his shows in a smaller venue but I suspect post-"cancelling" he's more repentent than ever and attracted a worse crowd. also, his excuse that he insults everyone equally isn't true. I don't think he adequately attacks racists, homophobes, sexists or white people. many of his targets for his more offensive material (e.g. Diane Abbot) is the same as those of dodgy old blokes telling jokes down the pub

Where was it that he said that?

No way that's so fucking cool. Last year I had planned to watch through all the OFITG series, gonna probs do this over Christmas now.

Will there be a load of terfs in the crowd, after they adopted him earlier this year?

He calls himself an 'equal opportunities offender' in Total Abuse (I think).

I would say three people clapped when he did his anti-trangender shite in glasgow a couple days ago, at least near me anyway.

Jerry Sadowitz is a pathetic man, fuck him.  If he enhances your life at this stage then that's a massive admission of
Failure.
