Far too few updates to this blog to consider myself a true recorder of my life experiences of late. The Fringe went very well, so well, in fact, that I didn't have time to write about it much. I do have notes of every gig I performed or watched. I shall try to do a summary of the gig side of things and record some opinions on what I saw.
Some facts/statistics would be pertinent.
Total shows I performed in - 67
The Musical! - 23 shows plus one "Best of the festival musicals"
Audiences - in The Musical! we must have played to over a thousand people.
Reviews - on the whole, good
Audience reaction - occasionally astounding, largely enjoyable
Most shows performed in one day - 5
Best show of The Musical! - 22nd August
Best stand-up show - 28th August - Laughing Horse - the audience were immense - they screamed
Smallest audience I performed to - 1 man in When Hedges Attack - there were more comedians than audience in ratio of 2:1
Largest audience - The Musical! once beat the 70 mark (plus company passes).
Longest set - Did 33 minutes headlining the Capital Comedy midnight show.
Now I'm back to the usual life of late nights spent on the nation's major roads in between working and gigging.
I'm tired but jolly.
