I’m doing a comedy gig in London next month. I will be one of a number of performers at ‘Happy Birthday Jesus!’, organised by the people who do Last Orders / Happy Hour at the Greenbelt Festival. It is on Wednesday 15 December at All Hallows On The Wall, 83 London Wall, EC2M 5ND from 7.30pm. Tickets £5 on the door.
I realise it’s a school night, but if you wanted to come along then that would be lovely.
I have, if you remember, done one or two gigs like this where I show some cartoons and talk. Mainly read out the captions. It sounds like it wouldn’t work, but it seems that it does. I call it cartoon stand-up. (Note that it may be performed seated for comfort reasons.)
Here (above) is a picture of me doing this in front of 3000 people at Greenbelt (Thanks Bex for the photo). I am turning around to look at the screen in an unattractive manner. Also I wasn’t convinced by the pink hair – you could have cut the ice with a stick at my meeting with the colourist.
Anyway, at this London gig it will be all to do with Christmas and that kind of thing. And a little bit longer than I did at Greenbelt. And there will be new material. There are some brilliant people taking part doing sketches and this and that. Sarah Dean, who is ace, is behind it, then you’ve got Tom Wateracre and Rev Gerald Ambulance and others.
