Café and a Pool Hall Collaborate on Comedy Night

Over The Road Café & Spots & Stripes pool hall are teaming up and starting a new venture born out of lockdown. Adapting businesses has been well highlighted over the past year or so and this is an example of it. Café and a pool hall = Comedy nights and new music. It’s an obvious equation right?!
The first installment of an ‘Over The Road @ Spots & Stripes’ comedy night is on 19th May.

Jeff Innocent

The amazing Jeff Innocent headlines, one of the finest comedians on the UK comedy circuit, with MC David Ward, along with special guests Darran Griffiths, Janet Garner and Mark Simmons on this rescheduled night of laughs.

Jeff Innocent has won many comedy awards with his philosophical East End geezer act that combines someone who will smash avocado on his toast for brunch as well as smash a lot more before breakfast. (

Darran Griffiths – Essex Bwoy – has won awards with his routines on race, class, gender and sexuality. (

Janet Garner sounds like the busybody who stands outside the corner shop gossiping with the neighbours – She’ll call her mate a slag and then headbutt you for saying the same thing.

Janet’s skills have been honed through constant gigging and is now at the top of her game.  (

Mark Simmons excels at the one-liners, and that skill won him a place in the Best Joke of The Fringe in Edinburgh in 2017. (

And holding it all together is Master of Ceremonies for the evening, David Ward, a comedian who may talk about being banged up in Wandsworth, or addicted to gambling, but still be funny and upbeat.

Southwark is on the road to recovery with the gift of laughter.
