At Vespbar in Glasgow, I was booked to play two gigs in the same venue on the same night for the first time. I was looking forward to it a lot as I think it is a great room for comedy. Viv Gee is a lovely and very funny host and the audience are always up for a good laugh.
I did get a surprise when I went into the toilet when I arrived to see my name up on a poster in there. Something of a comedy career highlight that. lol. My mate said it made a change from my telephone number being on toilet walls.
Here are the two gigs I performed that evening.
The Ten O’Clock Show
Dafty News Review
Stephen Hamilton, who is a comedian from Glasgow but living in Germany, approached me just before I was about to go onstage for the 8pm show and wished me luck. I thanked him for that, then started pacing the floor again.
Afterwards he explained that he was there to do a review for his Dafty News website and asked if it was ok to take a photo of me while I was onstage the second time. We then got talking and I quickly discovered that he has a very similar outlook to comedy as I do and that we share a lot of the same influences.
You can see what he wrote about me below, and no, I didn’t pay him. 😉
