Been to three comedy shows this month, will make it a fourth next week. Tonight was the best of the bunch so far. Richard Herring's Oh Frig I'm 50 was brilliant and I highly recommend anyone who is even vaguely aware of him, try and go and see the show.
The first week was just a local club, but it has made me look up the headliner and I'll be looking to see if the Aussie comic, John Robertson, is doing some gigs near me soon. The support acts were obvious work in progress kind of deals, but entertaining.
Last week I saw Ed Gamble. It was good, despite his own ad-libs occasionally putting him off his stride. It's worth seeing for the Marathon/Massage part of his routine alone.
Next week I'm seeing an Irish comic called Jarlath Raglan and the Comedian's Comedian host, Stuart Goldsmith. Until booking the tickets, didn't reall know much about either, but just wanted to go to four shows, in four different locations.
All in all, enjoyed these nights out and think I'll carry on going to at least a gig a month.
