I don’t ask much. I just occasionally want to have expectations I have set of myself to be met. I usually set them low, so that can’t be too much to ask, can it?
So I decided in advance that today would be hard work, with low audience numbers. That’s how yesterday worked out, so I expected the same today. Continue reading
I have had four days in a row of having full rooms, but today the numbers dropped down again.
Whilst the weather was decent enough, you could just feel that the numbers of people around in general were lower than the last few days. Continue reading
The good vibes continued today. Decent weather, lovely show, all going well.
I was slightly worried with it being a Tuesday that numbers may drop off. But the weather was very good again. Like yesterday, generally sunny without being too hot, and a nice breeze. Continue reading
Today the comedy Gods (and the sun) shined on the performers at the Fringe.
The weather held up all day, and was dry with good patches of sun. Even better than that, there was a slightly cool breeze, so our rooms were not as obnoxiously warm as they have been. Continue reading
Today I had another full audience, but unlike yesterday, they knew how to laugh!
I was a bit worried beforehand because it had poured down with rain the entire day. In the end though, I filled the room, so it was all ok. I mean, apart from having to walk around in soaking wet clothes all day. Continue reading
This was the second Saturday of the Fringe. As it’s a Saturday, you would expect it to be busy, and we were not let down.
Getting anywhere was hard work, as you had to work your way through throngs of people. And as is typical of Edinburgh, the weather veered from roasting us alive, to full on thunder storms. Stupid, stupid weather. Continue reading
Yet again, we have had all the weather in Edinburgh, and it is bloody exhausting.
I set out before 11am to flyer for the early ComedySportz show, and it was a light drizzle. By the time I’d got to the venue an hour or so later, it was pouring it down, and I was soaked through. Continue reading
I’ve had two tricky days in a row. 11 on Tuesday and 18 yesterday. While having 18 in was an improvement, the energy in the room dragged a bit. I did the job, but it didn’t feel the best.
But today it picked up again and I had 27 in. I must say as well, it was possibly the most enjoyable show I’ve done so far. Continue reading
Yesterday I had my lowest turnout so far – 11. I was told that today is ‘black Wednesday’, so I was braced for it to be just as bad.
In the end though, I had very respectable 18 in. The weather might have helped, as soon after my show began, the heavens opened. One thing you can say about my room, it does have a roof! Continue reading
