How do you choose between two posters as gorgeous as this? Thank you Paige Halley.  Of course I chose the one with the pink scarf because it is zany and catches the eye.  The good thing is it makes me look like I have something exciting to reveal. Sadly it does make me look like my mother on heat.

Three gigs in a row this week

Posted: August 3, 2017 in gigs, venues

Three gigs in a row this week:

Wednesday night: Magic Mic. at the Magic Monkey, Kings Cross (it was a full on night, with special guest Tony Woods).

Thursday night: Tudor Comedy at the Tudor Hotel, Redfern (I’m on the first bracket so don’t be late!)

Friday night: Dirty Harry’s open mike at the Ivanhoe Hotel, the Corso Manly.


This is how my Thursday afternoons usually go: I have a conversation with myself about Thursday evening. But I can’t decide because there are so many good rooms on that night.

Me: Shall I go to Crown for a comedy spot or to Mic in Hand for fine comedy?

Me: You could go to Tudor.

Me: No I didn’t get on.

[goes to the kitchen to check if mobile phone has charged]

Me: Maybe someone has sent me a message [checks phone and finds a message from Liam at the Friend in Hand]

Liam: would you like a spot? [the message is from an hour ago]

Me: Can I still have a spot?

[seconds later] Liam: yes sweet!

So I went to the Friend and this is the result. I think it went pretty well since I prepared most of it (not the script obviously), on the bus. Check it out!

Running Order: MC: Aoron Chen, Chris Kearey, Sue Thomas, Jono Lee, Ben Kochan, Bonnie Tangey, Nina Oyama, Headliner: Nick Sun.

Haven’t been to Tudor for at least six months. Its a good room but there are so many good rooms on a Thursday night. I am trying to share myself around.
