The lovely Bella Fiorentino put on a great night once again at Parliament Cafe on Sunday 8th July. It was a lot of fun. She had me as the “feature” artist and it was a lot of pressure because I always think of myself as an ensemble kind of guy. Still I gave them all I got. Maybe a bit more.

The other acts, as always, were standout particularly the first guy Paul was great telling poems about Bondi (my home town), very lyrical and pure. Bella sang a song with her clear haunting voice. It was a very nice laid back night, just like the night in April.

This is what Bella said on FaceBook:

Bring your instruments and spill your woes with some whisky and caffeine, sprinkles and whipped cream! Another night of madness, music, poetry and a saucy erotic comedian, the dearest Sue Thomas! Some StayFly artworks will be on exhibition, the one and only YOORI will be painting the night away and all ticket proceeds go to a charity chosen by you! We wont be voting or ringing any bells for time limits! Just a poem or song per person & if times left you can go again. Hope to see you there!

Sign up is 5.30 with a 6pm start, jam starts around 7.30 and if you would like to sell or exhibit any artworks or handmade thingamabobs (I took some tee shirts and booklets — I know that was a bit cheesy but I sold some, so there!)

Sunday 17th June was my third go at this excellent room (What She Said). The whole set up is amazing. The room runners (Naomi, Sophie and Alex) are very supportive with pictures and videos and encouragement which is the most important thing. I love it. And the audiences have been very warm. I couldn’t believe my luck.

This is what they say:

What She Said is a weekly all women comedy night packed with stand up, storytelling, sketch and musical performances from Sydney’s best comics.

Every Sunday at The Chippo Hotel at 6:30pm
Tickets $10 online, $15 on the door
Food and drinks available to purchase on the night

I had a great experience last month at the Loose Leaf Literature event. Here are the February recordings from Loose Leaf Literature and as you can see there are a lot of other excellent artists on this site. I hope you enjoy them. I will definitely be going back, hopefully to perform, but certainly to watch.
