Updated gigs through the end of November, brought to you by a robot
I’m going to be busy this weekend, so I scheduled this message to go out automatically last Thursday. Maybe I meddled with it a little bit using my phone on a train this morning. I’m sure nothing will go wrong.
Here are some gig dates. The most important one to come to is the competition on Tuesday.
Monday 22 November 7pm - Groovie Comedy at The Comedy Pub, Piccadilly
New central venue for the Groovie comedy franchise. £10. Host tbc
The Comedy Pub, 7 Oxendon St, London SW1Y 4EE
Tuesday 23 November 7:30pm - G & B Comedy New Act Competition, Kings Cross
Please come to this. Bring one or two friends if possible. If you’re given a chance to vote, vote for me (first preference). Free.
The Star of Kings, 126 York Way, London N1 0AX
NEW DATE: Wednesday 24 November 7:30pm - Sam Rhodes' Comedy Explosion Open Mic, Hoxton
My first time doing this night. It looks like a really nice venue.
Hoxton Underbelly, Gigi’s, 11 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU
Friday 26 November 11pm - Roast Battle UK, Islington
My roast battle against Mark O’Keefe off of This American Irish Life…
https://www.angelcomedy.co.uk/event-detail/roast-battle-uk-26th-nov-the-bill-murray-london-tickets-202111262300 - I know it’s late but there’s a show at 9pm in the same venue so you could come and see that first, then stick around for the roast battle.
The Bill Murray, 39 Queen's Head Street, London N1 8NQ
Four gigs in a week! Fuck.
In case you missed it, I wrote a list of Things I wish I'd known when I started stand-up. I’ve updated it based on some suggestions from Ed Mulvey. More suggestions/disagreements welcome.
Wordle is a fun word-guessing game that updates daily.
If you like audiobooks, I strongly recommend the Audible version of Some Rise By Sin (from my friend’s publishing house). It’s a brilliant period crime novel about graverobbers and the voice actor is really good.
Another good Audible pick is the audio version of Richard Herring’s book Would You Rather? The book is a collection of conversation-starting questions, but the audiobook is Richard Herring and Stevie Martin doing an extended interview where he asks her some of the questions.
If you’re trying to master anti-Irish rhetoric for some reason, I’d recommend watching Daniel Day Lewis’s character in Gangs of New York.
