Admittedly, these were not anonymous faces. No, it was down to the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to show their support and sit through what can only be described as a wide-ranging experience.
Overall, I think we managed to pull the show off. There were one or two moments which were hairy to say the least, and maybe I can see some places where cuts are possible, nay useful. But we held our audience's attention, which has to count for something. It's been a few months since we started rehearsing the show and I'm still finding new ways of delivering the lines - this pleases me. I really like being in this show and I'm looking forward to taking it to Edinburgh.
Anyway, must shower and go to bed. This week is, as they say in the world of stand-up comedy, something of a swine. Tuesday and Wednesday see me in London and Edinburgh respectively - more miles on the old car, there - and then Thursday evening will be in Durham... a little closer to home. Friday night is a break and then it's 4 gigs in two days on the weekend... that should be... well, evil! But it should also be fun. If I make it to my bed by this time a week today, I'll be happy. I'll be returning from Dundee! Zoiks!
