It's already been quite a busy start to the year! After heading down to Cardiff and Birmingham to perform at The Glee Club (no Sue Sylvester- how disappointing!) I've also done two solo shows on my tour -one at Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling and another at a particularly mental Dundee Rep gig where a man confessed to having a fetish for his wife dressing as a penguin! I asked where she was tonight and someone shouted 'Edinburgh Zoo!'
I also had a great night in London at the launch of the Glasgow Comedy Festival at the Leicester Square Theatre with a fab line up of comedians who are appearing.
For the first time at the Glasgow Comedy Festival this year I'm doing two nights! How exciting. Last year at Oran Mor loads of lovely Glesga folk couldnae get in so we decided to do another show this year which I'm now thinking I should have entitled 'Oran Mor and more'!
I still talk about last year's show even now, where a wummin from Mull of Kintyre with a home perm shaved at the sides was renamed 'Mullet Kintyre', and the gayest guy on earth worked for a roofing company called 'Ruby Roofing!' - precious! That's the thing about performing my show in Glasgow - the gigs throw up these real gems of characters that I don't think you'd find everywhere else. Glaswegians have real balls and are generally inherently funny and so want to really join in with the show and give you the quality of banter that makes for totally one-off moments that you couldn't plan.
So needless to say I'm wetting myself to go back (in a kilt that could really be disastrous!) So bring yer da, yer maw, yer granny, yer granda and 'Why Don't You Come Down The Front?' See you there guys! X
