Rounding off the night with another stand-up, I’m really looking forward to seeing Russell Hicks again, as the last time we saw him, he got so much hassle from the crowd that I don’t think he did any of his actual routine! He does play off the audience so well though, with his wonderfully laconic American wisecracking, so whether there is material here (it’s called Unprepared, so I’m not expecting a lot) or whether it’s all comic badinage between us and him, it’s going to be a brilliant end to the evening. The time – 23:40, the place – Just the Tonic at the Tron. Originally this was a Free-ticketed event but it’s now a Free Non-ticketed event – so does anyone want to buy my worthless tickets as we now can’t use them? I’ll put up our final reactions of the day some time before 1am. And that’s when I’ll preview our first show on Saturday.
Or at least that was my intention. But we’ve been up since 5:30 this morning, and when we got to just the tonic at the Tron, the place was absolutely seething with people, and the lure of a quiet drink in the hotel bar just too appealing. So, sorry Mr Hicks, we’ll be missing you this time round, hope to see you again sometime soon. Thanks for reading today, see you again tomorrow!
