UK EVENT: CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER AND EDDIE GRIFFIN LIVE IN THE UK

For those of you who missed the “news flash”, US comedians Cedric The Entertainer and Eddie Griffin will both be perform live stand-up gigs here in London.

Choice FM is the promoter behind both shows and apart from promoting both events on their website, the station’s “promotional activities” so far can only be described as shambolic and laughable! 

Most of my Twitter peeps who work within the world of entertainment here, didn’t know anything about Cedric and Eddie’s up and coming shows.

My friend happened to mention in passing that Cedric would be appearing live on stage in London on the 20th June. I was stunned.  This was news to me. 

And the only promotion that I spotted for Eddie’s gig  was a shabby little poster advertising the event, hidden behind a dust bin in South East London.

Choice FM you are a joke and a disgrace!

Anyway I’ve decided to help promote both shows, seeing as Choice have proven themselves to be completely useless.

  1. And they were paid to promote the events? SMH so hard right now.

    I wonder what jokes they would crack on satge about this kind of choice fm promotion. Hm

  2. I knew Cedric was coming a few months back, but only becos my friend bought tickets… never knew about Griffin though.

    I reckon it will sell out, if it hasn’t already… 🙂

  3. The other morning I heard Choice for the first time in many many years, but got caught out being stuck in a Naija cabbies car with him talking too loudly over his speaker on his phone to hear me ask to switch over (why they no realise that the technology may be small but the speaker volume is clear-u don’t have to shout into it).Anyway, my point is that the only way I realised that it was Choice was that there was a jingle and the presenter had one of those accessible East London ‘Im salt of the earth’ accents that many black men adopted in the late 70s and early 80s and that Kiss FM thought was the way forward. (think Trevor Nelson) Aside from that it could have been Radio 1 or Capital content wise but a poor mans version…We know what appened to New Nation. I await the official demise of Choice coming to a blog near u…..

  4. THIS IS SO TRUE, I DIDNT KNOW EDDIE WAS GONA BE HERE UNTILL I SAW THE ADD POSTER ON QUEENS ROAD ON WHAT APPEARS TO BE A RUBBISH BIN, I DEFF WILL BE THERE .
