so messed up i had to film it.

the action man-type figure in her hand has had crow make-up put on it...almost like it's some kind of Heath Ledger / Brandon Lee voodoo doll.

after waving it side to side, she then starts stroking her face with the things hands..

and salutes the end of the song by holding the doll-of-wrong aloft almost as if she wants her little plastic pal to see the band soaking in the audience's adulation

it's fat tuesday tonight...

the guy who runs the event was telling me last week that he'd lined up either simon amstell or russel howard to perform [can't remember which one of the two as i was quite inebriated at this point]1

am placing a ticket order in about an hours time, gimme a shout if you want in.
you can get them here

1: i cannot guarantee them being there as tiernan told me he'd not made it public knowledge as they'd canceled the previous time he'd booked them...

however, also performing are:

after some 34 hours straight1 spent packing and cleaning, things are going relatively smoothly; have sorted storage space and nearly packed everything although this last 10% of my possessions is proving somewhat difficult to box up... maybe best just to chuck the stuff that's costly/inconvenient to replace later on.

am really not looking forwards to attempting to get the deposit back off the landlord... the pikey bastard's tighter than a gnat's chuff and describing my knowledge of the procedure as scant would be an overstatement to say the least.

anyways, best stop this procrastination and get back to work.

1: candice & i somehow found the time to see alterred at the islington academy... thoroughly enjoyed their performance, although the audience were nothing short of appalling: i don't think it would have been possible to find a more lackluster bunch of morose individuals.

What's worse than being a podgy, swotty, virginal schoolboy? How about your dad's the headmaster too? For his 24th Edinburgh Show, the star of 'Oh Fuck, I'm 40' dusts off his old diaries, rekindles memories that might best have been left forgotten and picks off scabs from wounds that he thought had healed to discover if he can blame his upbringing for his adult failures.

despite the earlier setbacks, tonight's comedy offering was pretty damned sweet.

after arriving late [my fault] at the wrong tube station [my fault] we got a taxi to hammersmith in good time to grab a place right at the front of the queue.

we sat down, close enough to the stage to hear bill's asthmatic wheezing and to watch each and every glistening bead of sweat that formed on his forehead from inception to brow wiping demise.

but, just before the start of the show, some idiot dropped their phone underneath the tiered seating.

as the show was being recorded, they went and told the usher who was evidently making sure no one attempted to storm the stage and pay impromptu homage to the comedic maestro we were there to see.

so, anyway despite the potential havoc of having an unanswerable phone ringing during the show, bill strolls on stage and begins his show. 5 minutes in, announces that some numpty had dropped their phone under the seats and then asked them to shout out the number so he could call it.

they did, he did... sadly, the phone was on silent.

not particularly funny or noteworthy, i know. but, i do now have bill bailey's number.

other highlights included the assortment of bizarre heckles1 the best of which was person who gave bill a pint of lager at the start of the show repeatedly insisting that he consumed the beverage.

the tube ride home was interesting, i got befriended by some muppet that insisted on talking shit at me until he got off the train.

you all love bill bailey, right?

his animal related quips and humorous musings on philosophy and drugs sure tickle our funny bones, yeah?

and doesn't it just suck that his current run of shows in a nice small venue is sold out?

well, thanks to a certain fairweather friend who shall remain nameless. ahem. geoff. ahem.. i now have a spare ticket for the show tonight.

so, who wants to see bill bailey?

just submitted my pay claim for the last 2 months.

lookin' forwards this weekend to:

some hot pablo action, fixing the fixietron & tree clubbing
daf: (myspack)
saw stewart lee last night in the toilet that is ginglik. the venue was superb, they shoved us right up at the front on big comfy sofas reserved just for our party :]

mr lee, whilst being more rotund, wasn't as funny as his old comedy foil & counterpart, the legendary richard herring. in my drunken state, i decided it was a good idea to tell him this. fortunately he didn't eat me but continued to tout his - decidedly bootleggy looking - live dvds.

paul "the openly gay asian doctor" sinha also performed... he was as clever and trivia filled as he was amusing.
daf: (disco stu)
saw this little tyke at the anti-racism festival at finsbury park last weekend just after the inimitable nathan "flutebox" lee had performed...

is he not the cutest dog you've seen

out of the bag )
daf: (disco stu)
still got 2 tickets at my table for stewart lee next tuesday

gonig thus far are

myself, [livejournal.com profile] ahura_mazda
[livejournal.com profile] natbombat & kai

daf: (myspack)
