Blighty to host ‘The Gil­lies’

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

En­joy a night filled with laugh­ter at Blighty Foot­ball Netball Club’s ‘The Gil­lies’ com­edy event this Satur­day.

Named in hon­our of club le­gend Gil­bert Bain, the event will fea­ture per­for­mances by funny-men Johnny Kats and Evan Hock­ing, and will be hosted by Blighty’s very own Jed Brain and Matt ‘Jok Bok’ Boyd, more com­monly known as ‘The JB Show’.

Event co­or­di­na­tor and JB Show mem­ber Matt Boyd said ‘The Gil­lies’ is a must on the club’s so­cial cal­en­dar.

‘‘The Gil­lies is on the day of our last home game, against Pi­cola United, be­fore fi­nals kick into ac­tion,’’ he said.

‘‘It will be a great evening full of laughs — Evan Hock­ing per­formed at a com­edy night at the Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club last year, and it was hi­lar­i­ous.

‘‘We’ll also have our mock academy awards, The Gil­lies, named in hon­our of Gil­bert Bain.’’

The Gil­lies will see club mem­bers recog- nised for their in­volve­ment at the club, no mat­ter how unique.

‘‘We have awards for rarest per­son at the club, best new talent, the per­son who speaks highly of them­selves, best cou­ple and more.’’

Set to start at 7.30pm, the Gil­lies will be held at the Blighty Recre­ation Re­serve and guests are asked to dress in dou­ble denim.

The cost is $30 per per­son, which in­cludes dinner and en­ter­tain­ment.

Co­me­dian Johnny Kats has been mak­ing au­di­ences laugh world­wide for al­most 15 years, and is known for his en­ergy and im­per­son­ations.

Evan Hock­ing, who is in­volved with the highly pop­u­lar Face­book page and com­edy show The Sub­ur­ban Foot­baller, is a reg­u­lar at sport­ing clubs, and presents what is de­scribed as a ‘‘punchy de­liv­ery mixed with ob­ser­va­tional hu­mour and sto­ry­telling’’.
