Well, 4000 words to go (yesterday I did stacks of research, really). I can do 4000 in a day. Ahahaha.
I best do my comedy festival list, as it’s starting… now? Soon? Now?
So, here’s who I’m seeing. Some people might remember from last year (no link, just check the archives, I can’t be arsed. It was March-ish) that I’m somewhat of a comedy junkie. Though I’m very picky about my comedy, I usually go to a few dozen events, some twice (Daniel Kitson) but this year it’s tight. So, here tis, some people for whom I already have tickets:
Adam Richard Saw him two years ago and LOVED him. I don’t listen to the fox (or is it mix?) so I never hear him on radio. But my god, he ruled. I’m very excited about this one.
Andy McClelland Hi Skool knows him. He’s pretty funny. His pirate show, and the show with his BFF Lawrence Leung, were both great.
Arj Barker Hi Skool and I see him every time he’s out. Yes, he’s funny, but he usually does old material. But… god we love looking at him. We’ve spoken to him a couple of times, once (as he’s a filthy manwhore) he was all, ‘so… where’s cool to go out? Are you guys going out now?’ we just kind of giggled. In all fairness, we were about 19. In less fairness, we’d do the same thing now. Fucking fanboys.
Call Girls Not sure about this one. A play about call centres. I think I’ll be going by myself, hee.
Dance of the D-Cups I actually had no choice, I got them free. I’m scared. The women aren’t pretty, and I think they… do stuff with their boobs. Hmmm. I can’t back out though, for various reasons. Don’t ask, seriously.
Daniel Kitson Siiiigh. One of my favourite people in the entire world. I can’t tell you how much I love him. His story shows had me in tears (both kinds, even!) but he’s just doing stand up this time. Which is still awesome. He is just so cool.
Demitri Martin Um, kind of like a cross between Arj and Daniel? I saw him last year, he was great.
Lawrence Leung Is a funny man. I like his documentary style of show.
Vaya Pashos Jaxx really wants to go, so I’m doing him a solid.
If I know you IRL and you wanna come to some of these with me, please email. You know I love you.
I wanted to see Greg Fleet, but he was too expensive. Ditto Ross Noble. Also, I may check out Tim Minchin; I’ve heard good things.
So, who are you going to see? Please note if you say Carl Baron, Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes or anyone of that ilk, you shall be mocked. Mercilessly. And you know you deserve it.
