Janey Godley on her having the festival at her doorstep
It is with much excitement and pride that I take part in The Glasgow International Comedy Festival again this year, a comedy festival in my own fair city.
My show this year is called ‘Too Old for Telly’ on April Fool’s day which seems appropriate and is at the awesome Oran Mor venue up in the leafy West End and one of my favourite venues.
Having done many international festivals across the globe, having one on my doorstep is incredibly novel, I don’t have to get on a bus, plane or train to attend. I can merely walk out my own door and have amazing top comics at my fingertips and that’s just a cracking feeling.
I remember my first Glasgow Comedy festival show back in 2003 down in a wee bar in the Trongate in a dank basement with about 70 people crammed into tables that made a screaming sound on the concrete when moved. I didn’t need hecklers when the furniture was already making enough noise in protest. I loved it.
So embrace the city come March, stand back and listen to the venues ringing with laughter and enjoy the comedy festival, I like to think our buildings are built on the hard work, sarcasm and laughter of the working classes that toiled to erect them.
As long as the furniture within doesn’t scream in objection!
