If we’re awake enough, the plan is to have one final comedy hour in the company of Sameer Khan: At the Zoo, at The Staff Room at The Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, 139 Cowgate at quarter past midnight on the night of Tuesday 23rd. It’s a free show, so if we don’t make it, it hasn’t cost us anything! Here’s the blurb: “Tired of watching middle-class white males try to be funny? Come watch a middle-class brown male (who grew up in a white society) try to be funny! Sameer Khan, an American living in Cambridge, provides his hilarious take on the British, race, society and little things you never noticed. The show is guaranteed to make you laugh or your money back!¹ Here are some great things people have said about him: ‘What a soothing voice he has!’ (Angel Comedy). ¹The show is free.”
I’ve had a good look around the internet and there isn’t a lot to be discovered about Mr Khan, so this is a complete leap of faith. Check back about half past one to see if we made it and if it was worth it, and by then the preview blog for our first show on Wednesday should be available to read too.
Alas, it was not to be. When we came out of the previous show, we realised how starving we were, so had to go past the venue on the hunt for chips. By the time we’d finished, it was too late for the show, so we repaired back to the hotel for beddybyes. Sorry, Sameer, hope we get to see you perform another time!
