Nicholas Charlton
I think the MDs is really good at doing what it does, it is a great society that puts on a great Christmas shows each year, and we are often complemented on our writing. But I think there is more we can do. I think now is the time to take the society to the next level. We need to gain more experience performing, in front of the public. Putting ourselves out there and performing regularly is what we need to do. The only real way to improve comedy is to perform it, multiple times, in front of fresh audiences and adjust in response to crowds. This is what all professional comedians do. Before lockdown I had been frequenting both the Bill Murray and the Camden head, both nearby in Islington and part of the Angel Comedy club. They do weekly open mike nights that I would like to arrange for us to test out material at. So much of comedy is in the performance and I think we should turn our focus towards it.
