Work in Progress..
A happy Winner...
Yesterday was probably the most surreal day of my life, because it lasted for like 24 hours and crazy things happened. On Wednesday I has a rare day off and spent most of it sleeping as per usual on days offs. It wasn't a day off per se as I had to prepare class, for Thursday. I ended up getting upa t 2am Thursday morning, 4 hours of prep, six hours of class in Lowestoft, got home had time for a crap two cigarettes and a few pages of Walking Dead, equally as addictive.
Then it was off to The Golden Star for the Yer Having a Laf comepetition sponsored by Outline nine comedians and I won!! Couldn't believe it. I was up against some Laugh Out Loud contemporaries and it was seriously close. I was on after a local Norwich character called 'President Gas' who did poems about Big Brother and X-Factor. Before the performance I was in the bogs and he was having a piss next to me going on about how he came second last time and second is the first loser and how he was definitely gonna win I just kept quiet. What's great about stand up is that you know immediately if it's going well, which it was with me, I have a good ten minutes now for open mic spots that I can do at the drop of a hat without hesitation. Know it's time to write more! Good help yous all...
And then there was the post-apocalyptic Lowestoft storm warnings so I got to stay in bed and not teach and celebrate by watching crazy google videos in bed! see above.
