In my last post I mentioned David ‘Geli’ Geli, one half of the team behind Up The Creek Comedy Management. And here he is, in the ‘box’ at Up The Creek Comedy Club in Greenwich running the Open Mic night. He brings the lights up and down, cues the music, and also does the Big Booming Voice that tells everyone to return to their seats and give the next act a big hand.

I’ve known him for several years now, but when I was down there doing the stills on the Open Mic night I wasn’t aware I’d be hearing his voice over the speakers and at first I was absolutely convinced it was someone else – he does the ‘Radio DJ’ voice to perfection, it does not sound like him. How we laughed after I realised…

Shot in B&W in-camera on my D700, with a few tweaks to exposure and contrast in Lightroom 5 later.
