As well as enjoying Stewart Lee an awful lot this evening, just as entertaining was finally seeing the type of people in the audience he has been talking about for years, as the 2 people sat next to me (who were obviously there with very different expectations) didn't offer as much as a chuckle, sitting stony faced and perplexed until they finally left about 15 mins into the second half.  Made me feel all warm and smuggly lou_smiley

Sorry, I thought it was you sat next to me!

He just didn't tell proper jokes, not like I enjoy on Mrs Brown's Boys.

 

 

 

I was sat in the front row in the orchestra pit, it was a bit bizarre.

Shall we tell @pap what he had to say about Brexit voters?...

Or shall I just leave it that Mr Lee suggests that the Labour Party is led by Catweazle and his gang of furious tramps?

After a day of Latin America politics I headed to The Union Chapel in Islington to sit on hard pews for some comedy. We remembered to take some cushions this time so my back isn't as bad as it could have been today. 

The line up was Joe Wilkinson, Lolly Adefope with headliner Rob Delaney and compère  Ed Gamble. There was a choir too as it's christmas. There was a bonus Joe Lycett who opened the night.

Joe Lycett was very funny. We also enjoyed Lolly and Ed Gamble was very amusing. I'd booked it for Rob Delaney and I found him hilarious in parts but other half wasn't so sure. We felt that Joe works better as a character rather than standup.

Last night I headed to Shepherds Bush Empire for Luisa Omielan. When the show was booked it was for her show Am I Right Ladies but her mother passed away earlier this year. So the show was about that, cancer, NHS failings, palliative care and cannabis oil. Doesn't sound a barrel of laughs and some parts were really hard for her and the audience. She said at the beginning that people could leave if they needed. But at other parts she had us laughing. She had a standing ovation.

Comedy can be a great way of dealing with some horrific stuff.   There are so many stand up's and comedy actors who've suffered.

We've all fucking suffered. It's what it is to be human. Some of us laugh about it and some cry and some do both as some do neither.

I'm like a philosopher. A whiskey philosopher.
