Lach’s Anti-Hoot – 3/2/14
It was Monday night and that could only mean time for another visit to Lach’s Anti-Hoot at Henry’s Cellar Bar. I had missed the previous week’s one due to being at Pandemonium Comedy at Caberet Voltaire and so was glad to be back.
Each week Lach offers £25 to two performers which are decided by an audience vote and staff vote. I have yet to achieve that accolade but I go there to experiment a bit and try not to think about the competition aspect too much….although the money would be handy, if only to help cover the costs of my train fare into Edinburgh. 🙂
It is always a good night there with many fine musicians and this week also included two storytellers, one of whom, Chelsea Cargill, made it through to the final.
Here are the sets I performed.
As I shouted at the audience at the end of the first one, I thought I better start the second set with an apology. Sometimes, I get frustrated, what can I say? It’s not easy being….well, anyone these days is it?
This week my vote went to Calvin Arsenia. When I was onstage I said it was good to see another member of the Hair Bear Bunch there and mentioned that sometimes I brush my hair up to have the same effect as Calvin and then post the photos on facebook but people just think I look like an arsehole.
As you can see here Calvin pulls off the ‘brushy uppy’ look far better than I.
