After the lights came up he took centre stage and added: "It's gonna be a good gig if I can't even get my intro right"
He talked about his love of the city: "It's the only place in the UK, actually probably the world, that could maintain a shop called Vegetarian Shoes!"
Joel riffed about the fact that just over a year before he played this show, he did a gig at the Caroline of Brunswick, in Hove, to just three people but "eat an animal's dick on TV and suddenly everyone's interested!"
At his request the lights dimmed so he could tell the audience: "How funny my show could be if I still lied at gigs" and then sung a song about how he killed his girlfriend with his "laser dick" and shone a bright green laser up at the ceiling from within the crotch of his jeans.
He added: "The worst lie I've ever told" when he lied to his best friend Steve to avoid paying to fly out to his wedding, citing "family problems" as his reason to not pay £2000 to fly to Thailand for the event, only for his family to be at said wedding."
After a short break Joel returned and pointed out the on stage confetti cannon and gave over control to a member of the audience with instructions "to press the trigger when it felt appropriate, you'll know when!"
He opened-up about the time he tried to "woo a lady that led to a lot of you seeing my dick" (referring to his leaked sex tape) after talking to her online for ages, she asked him to have Skype sex, to which he agreed, he then never heard from her again and about six months later a rather dodgy twitter handle called Celebs Busted UK added him so he clicked on their profile and the bio read "if we follow you then we have naked pictures of you".
They told him to pay £2000 to stop the picture being made public. He snorted "if I had £2000 I"d have gone to my best friends wedding, you"re not gonna release it, I'm not famous enough, it"s done."
Several months later he went on "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here" (where he came second behind Scarlett Moffat from Gogglebox) and they released the video - "shit," he exclaimed.
It was a fantastic night full of laughs-a-plenty and Joel knew how to handle his audience (even when he had to tell them off!).
