The Greenwich Comedy Festival came to a close yesterday with an impressive crescendo of Ed Gamble, James Acaster, Tim Key and David O'Doherty.

Set in the grand setting of Greenwich's National Maritime Museum, the festival drew a packed audience who were raring for some Sunday night comedy - here's out top five moments from the evening.

1. When compère Gamble mocked the wine coloured trousers of a man called Tom who wasn't wearing any socks

Being picked on in the front row can be tough, especially when you liken the colour of your trousers to a bottle of Malbec.

Luckily all those unfortunate souls in the front row took the teasing well, with one well-dress gentleman from Harrods even posing for a selfie with a grinning Gamble.

2.When Acaster told that well-known fable about the sloth and the goose

Retold with precise comic timing and hilarious sound effects, it had the audience cackling with a heady mix of equal parts comedy and confusion.

3. When O'Doherty lobbed water at Gamble's crotch just before he returned to the stage

Having to explain his questionable stain - which never really fully dried - and convince an audience it wasn't urine was, I'd argue, a highlight for all.

4. When Tim Key's beer exploded all over him as he opened his routine

Whether planned or just a comical accident, the frothy explosion kicked off his set consisting of poetry stand up fusion, all delivered off the back of an assorted pack of cards.

5. When O'Doherty proved he is a keyboard playing comedy god

Closing this year's festival O'Doherty did not fail in his quest to entertain.

Amongst other topics and songs, he talked of the euphoric moment his hometown of Dublin celebrated for marriage equality and the messy consequence of mixing white wine and protein powder - or "Chardonnwhey" as O'Doherty likes to call it.
