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!

What I did last night — its a great little room with lots of potential. Be there!

This is what they said on FaceBook: We did it! Molotov is back! Opening night jitters were quickly tossed aside as Sydney’s favourite open mic choo choo trains arrived at the station. Big thanks to the very attractive, cool and popular Alfie Cannock and Tom Sanderson for hosting.

Special mention goes to the NSW State Government whomst requires us to have three security guards on the door after 9pm. Better get your heckles in before nine because after then you just might get BOUNCED. See ya next week.

Here’s the running sheet for the first bracket — I was in the second bracket and had a lot of fun and yes, I stayed to the end.

Monday Running Sheet:

Cameron Duggan (MC), Gerard McGowan, Sue Thomas, Justin Jones — [Break] — Angie LavoirPierre, Mick Meredith (Headliner).

I did the Silent Witness story with two new sign jokes — the plastic folders joke got a belter and Mick Meredith noticed that. Cool. I got a lot of kind comments from audience members (4), including a lady who liked the set because she liked the silent witness show and in spite of the fact that she described my stuff as “inappropriate”. LOL My favourite bit about the night was the $20 drink token which is pretty much the same as being paid. Excellent!

Wednesday Running Sheet:

Pat Doherty¬†(MC), Justin Jones, Sue Thomas,¬†Gerard McGowan, Dan Muggleton¬†— [Break] — Jen Canivale (Headliner).

I did the Silent Witness story again giving it a bit more pumping up and with a lot of minties to help with the phlegm. Hemingway’s is a upmarket bijoux establishment and I was surprised how many people they could pack in. The audience must have¬† been locals, they were all very friendly, and a mixture of young and old. One young guy said on the way out “you were my favourite”. So we can chalk that gig up as a job well done!

Here’s my set from last Thursday 27th April at the Friend in Hand. Thanks Liam and Wayne for thinking of me and putting me on with this incredible line-up of comics, veterans and rookies. Trevor Crook was the headliner and he was very funny, likewise the incredible Julia Wilson, I love her stuff!

Here’s the trailer for Womb Cop for those of us that don’t have a 3 minute attention span. LOL. Its even funnier at 10 seconds! Check it out!

This is what director Corey Farrell posted on FaceBook:

Womb Cop “the ultrasound” aka. VFX/Grade breakdown…

Although it’s a silly little short a lot of hard work went into making it look as good as it could. Here’s a little vid to highlight that x

Special thanks to Clem and Yavor and Heckler
