SAT JULY 25TH – THE FEATHERS, RICKMANSWORTH 6.00 pm – Clean Show. Over 12’s 8.15 pm – Over 18’s SUN JULY 26TH - THE WATERS EDGE, COWLEY, UXBRIDGE 7.30 PM Tickets: http://www.angryboater.com New Video from the Apsley Homecoming Show: http://www.angryboater.com/?page_id=38 SHOW DETAILS: Before becoming The Angry Boater, Joel Sanders grew up in Hillingdon, ran a successful comedy club in Ruislip, headlined leading comedy venues across the USA & lived happily at his flat in Watford. One day, on a bit of a whim, he bought a boat in Uxbridge and moved it up the canal to Hemel Hempstead. HE HAD NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY! So what went wrong? For one weekend only, Joel brings his 5 star rated comedy show back to the area where he spent his formative years (went shopping sometimes). Living the dream or surviving a nightmare? What’s it REALLY like living on a canal boat? Determined from an early age to prove his father wrong (“Jews Don’t Live on Boats”), 20 years on, Joel struggles to do just that …. full time … with zero practical skills … and a short temper. During its 2015 residency in East London, as well as consistently giving the show 5 star ratings, here’s what real audience members said about ‘Angry Boater Live': “Entertainment for boaters, boating curious’ and … simply a good night for anyone who wants to meet diverse & interesting people and have a laugh. Joel connects with the audience, engaging with every single person, before during and after the performance… making this a really personal and memorable experience.” “Great midweek show, very entertaining and a nice informal relaxed atmosphere.” “Amusing anecdotes and life stories – half centred around canal boat living. The Jewish angst added to the eccentricity of it all. Highly recommend for a pleasant evening.” “I was expecting someone really angry and sort of scary. Joel Sanders is a very funny guy with a nice evening of stories to tell…. he chats with his audience but never victimises them.”
hi there, I was wondering if any one could advise. I will have my dad looking after our boat as we will be away for a week in the summer. Now, he's a keen angler and i was thinking about getting him the license so he can fish from the boat. It is likely to be Denham/Uxbridge/Rickmansworth area and I was wondering what else is required (apart from the license from EA) to be able to fish legally. Many thanks!
I'm trying to track down an old working boat that I was born on in 1974 (well we were in Leamington Spa when mum had to dash off to the hospital to give birth) I'm not a boater now but I was born onto the canals and spent my earliest years between Rickmansworth and the Midlands, and living at Braunston for a short time. My dad, Kim McGavin, ran coal up and down the GU on boats Grace (Originally no.88 of the Samual Barlow fleet), then Avon (?), then the boat I lived on, Sirius (Built in 1934 by Walker's of Rickmansworth), which is the boat I'm trying to track down if it's still afloat. He then switched to group tours on Hawksbury (which I believe is still around). The photo attached here was a postcard made without mum's knowledge or permission (Braunston 1975) and was found much later by accident in a shop (surprise!) but it's where the information comes from, leading me to the Historic Narrow Boat club website. https://hnbc.org.uk/boats/sirius So any information or leads on Sirius would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe
