News: Onstage Marriage Proposal At Comedy Gig

Spencer Jones' gig at the Soho Theatre on Friday night ended in an unusual way. One of Jones' team proposed to his girlfriend onstage. Luckily she said yes.

Jones had just come to the end of his performance of his Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated show The Audition when he invited Kit Sullivan up to thank him for all the work he had done on the production. Sullivan asked if his girlfriend, Natasha Doughty, could come onstage too, so they both joined Jones.

Edinburgh Fringe Preview: Spencer Jones

I will be honest. The first time I saw Spencer Jones I didn’t get it. He was in the New Act of the Year final and I thought he must be a mate of the promoter or just someone who had wandered in from the pub next door, pausing only to put on a pair of stupid white tights. The second time I saw him it was at a Malcolm Hardee tribute gig. He did pretty much the same slapstickish, childlike set, mucking around with props, hardly saying a word, but it suddenly made sense. He really is a gifted clown with genuine funny bones.
