Went to see DJ Derek at Komedia. Derek was of course great but the venue was a very bad choice. Seemed to me that Komedia had oversold the event then decided to give the majority of their staff the night off! Night began with ridiculous queues stretching up the entire road to get in as you were unable to collect tickets in advance so one member of staff was checking e-tickets manually; which clearly caused huge delays. Once inside you were treated to yet more lengthy queues to hand your coat in. Once you had completed all this we went inside to realise Komedia had only opened one bar and were running it with minimum staff; waiting for over 30 minutes to get served drinks is simply a complete joke. Surely the management at Komedia were aware they had sold all the tickets and might have thought that perhaps around 4 bar staff might struggle to serve 600 odd people? All in all; if you want to spend £15 on a ticket, then spend the majority of your night queuing for entry, drinks, the toilet etc and subsequently miss most of the acts you paid to watch then go for it; Komedia's for you!
