In pictures: the Gregg Jevin Memorial Concert

Thursday, March 08 2012

The comedy world has been in shock and mourning since the death of comedian and Twitter joke that went mental, Gregg Jevin. So a stiff upper lip and best foot forward, as LiF brings you some images from GJ's memorial concert at Soho Theatre



Michael Legge
















Your host and chief mourner, Michael Legge (all pics by Mairead Palmer)



Bridget Christie
















Character comic Bridget Christie dealt with things by dressing up as a shambolic, drunken version of Louise Mensch MP and feeding coal to a toy baby



Al Murray
















Al Murray, despite looking chirpy here, had hit the bottle hard and was devastated at losing "a great English comic"



Simon Evans

















Simon Evans – not the only comic on the night who claimed to have had "relations" with Jevin



Dave Cohen
















Slightly less appropriately dressed than Evans was Dave Cohen



Tony Law
















Tony Law, who didn't really pay much attention to the whole Gregg Jevin thing



Rachel Parris
















Comedy songstress Rachel Parris poured her heart out with a mournful song written especially for Gregg



Barry From Watford


















Here's octogenarian Barry From Watford with "Ronald"



Shappi Khorsandi

RIP Gregg Jevin















Here's to you, Gregg
