When one gig gets cancelled, another one pops up. Thats what seems to have happened these past two weeks.
The show was due to start at 9, but by 8.30 there were only 2 people in the audience. There was heavy snow outside so it was understandable that people were not rushing to watch comedy (in a room which unfortunately was going through a period of broken heating). But by 9.15 we nearly had 20 people, a small crowd but enthusiastic, a great crowd to have, well done crowd. Tried out my newest additions for the second time with good reactions from the audience, did 8 or 9 minutes I would say. Was very pleased with the night. Steffen Peddie rounded out what was a great night of comedy.
I was due to do another gig tonight at The Comedy Pig (or "The Pig Night" as the flyer said haha) at Barkollo but no one turned up (I would imagine due to the insane snow). Luckily I was told it was off before I set off (as I was going for the later part of the evening due to a chinese meal I was attending). I arrived home from my meal to find an invite to do a 5 minute slot on Friday at the Corner House. The snow has cancelled a gig I was going to attend at the Playhouse but has given me another gig in return! When one gig falls another rises, I'm telling you.
