The Geek (from The Ginge, The Geordie & The Geek) Guest Blog
I’m on the train again! Travelling down to London and have a spare 5 hours so I have decided to write a wee blog for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. This is our 3rd year at the festival! And we love it!
It’s been an amazing year for us, we have performed with Michael McIntyre, Jimmy Carr, James Corden, appeared on Dick and Dom with Catherine Tate and also sold over 7000 tickets at the Edinburgh Fringe. But I suppose the highlight is the BBC have commissioned us for a half hour comedy pilot… you see your TV licence does go to good use (we promise not to waste it).
We are currently filming it just now, which is amazing but means I have travelled up and down to Glasgow seven times in the last four weeks; I’m starting to know the train staff by name now. Trevor is my favourite ticket collector, when he is checking tickets he just says to me ‘You all right big man?’ Everyone on the carriage looks at me and I feel special.
Anyhows we are doing our 2011 Edinburgh sell out show this year with one or two sneak previews of our 2012 Edinburgh show, which due to popular demand or insanity, we are performing twice a day this August! (God help us, god help us all!)
Right I’m off to see Sandra, she works in the train canteen and always gives me a wee free bar of chocolate. I don’t have the heart to tell her I don’t eat chocolate, but I give them to the Geordie when I see him! He loves his sweets, every year those pants are getting tighter!
The Ginge, The Geordie & The Geek perform at the Tron Theatre on Tuesday 27 March
