The smell of delicious pizza is upon you as you enter. The venue itself is the half and half option, Compass Pizza is half restaurant bar and half performance venue serving whole pizzas with Supreme Comedy delivering the laughs on the first Saturday of each month.
Host Liz Skitch provides a good base for the all female and LGBTQIA comedians to layer on their humorous toppings with a well timed delivery at an affordable price. With new guests each month the launch party gave us five different acts plus whimsical games and gaffs between acts by Skitch herself to keep the night moving.
Annie Louey brought us into her world of extraordinary certificates and knowledge. Strong quips and man scented air fresheners earns her another degree of humour.
Joke of the night goes to Fiona Scott-Norman and her rice paper role. A well written dark set, perhaps more of a writer than performer as the content was read out from a script. If you like your comedy black with some burnt bits this lady is your choice of the menu.
Some of the sets were unfortunately under-cooked which is a shame as the content was strong and considered but just lacked the final preparation and delivery to make it palatable for the audience.
Kelly Fastuca headlined the night with a messy but flavorsome set. Fastuca was hard to follow at times due to a lack of articulation but she brought the comfort feels and the audience was welcomed into her fertility turmoil in a very laughable way.
Skitch and Compass Pizza have created a safe space for female + LGBTQIA comedians whilst providing a great night of entertainment and food.
Supreme Comedy is a pizza with the lot, with some ingredients working better than others. There is a flavor for everyone here though including those special people who like their anchovies and pineapple.
