Actually, it was really good doing a gig there last night. It was a rather odd setup. The audience was intimate and the sound and lighting equipment wasn't functioning. We did it all "unplugged". But it was fun. It was just under two years ago, early August 2002, that I got into a taxi just outside Blackpool pleasure beach and said "You know 'Baby one more time'? that was originally recorded by George and Zippy." and then I came out with a "recreation" of that. It's on video somewhere. I didn't realise at the time that, some four months later, I'd be dying on my arse in my first comedy gig... and that, some 11 months later, in desperation, I'd be pulling that trick out at a gig to discover that it gets big laughs.
It made them laugh last night too. Good.
