I did an audition for the Jongleurs Stand and Deliver competition in Birmingham on Saturday. I had hoped that they'd take my audition towards the Leeds heat in July, rather than the Birmingham Heat two weeks today (which I am unable to attend). Sadly, I just received a call offering me a place in the Birmingham heat and I've had to turn it down. The first rule of being a new comedian should be never to turn a gig down. Aaaagh!
Hopefully they'll put my audition into the Leeds pile, rather than the "ungrateful bastard" pile. I guess I'll find out in 3 weeks.
