This should be a good one — I’m just doing stand-up this time but it will be fun watching our pals fighting it out — particularly Seizure Kaiser and Simon Kennedy who have already been sparring on the net!

Magic Mic (Mike?)

Posted: June 15, 2017 in gigs, photos, venues

I had a bit of trouble finding the Magic Mic site on FaceBook.

Here is the event posting for Magic Mic comedy for last night (June 14, 2017).

A little badinage:

Me: “Trying to find Magic Mic FaceBook page and have inadvertently “liked” a page for a movie about male strippers – not so bad. Lol”

Anthony Skinner (who runs the room): “Sue we all saw you at the premiere, don’t deny it haha”.

Anyway it was a great room, friendly bar staff, logical snacks. Last night was off the wall good. Everyone was firing off like crazy (you know that kind of night where the same old jokes magically sound like gold.

The audience were young city dwellers (and possibly tourists I don’t know), just my kind of people, they seemed to be enjoying themselves and at the height of the evening the place was full. A win win situation is what I call it.

This is what it looked like (I am in the shadows on the far left).

The Mark and Justin (Working Title) video is a surprise for me — I never knew I was in the video. Still its lovely to see the old place and people like Justin Lodge and George who were great pals that we haven’t seen for a while. They are probably having serious lives, not like us still joking around. Good on them!

Check out the video, it is a blast from the past. The William Hotel was a big welcoming room that we enjoyed playing in – unfortunately it got turned into a strip club. I did consider continuing there but we moved to the Chippendale Hotel instead – my pole dancing days were over anyway. Lol.

I have seriously lost weight!
