My Dirty Little Secret

I know, this must be very boring, but don't worry the shameless self promotion will end soon. Below are some pics from the Earlham's Dirty Little Secret Comedy night. 

Didn't get any pics of David Trent he was on the bill with us and one of the best of the night. Christian Ancliff and Dan McKee also did great sets.  The night was organised and MC'ed by Carrie Ann Guthrie

Although people say my set went well, I think it was not as good at some of my other ones, but it was good to do almost all new material (smae old themes of porn and sex though, more geekiness was in evidence)  and try it out, will have it more polished for Laugh Out Loud on Dec 10th at the Rose.  There was quite a mix of ages too, so again felt like shortening some of the more perverse bits. It's a great experience though in how to reword things to be clearer in the joke. I had a bit about a priest coming up to me in primary school when I was reading a Fighting Fantasy book 'Phantoms of Fear' and he goes ' you don't believe in all those goblins and demons and such', I was like no, because, like, it's a book, I don't really believe in fictional supernatural characters that appear in books, and that they talk to me and guide my life...I'm not fucking insane. I then decided to follow it up with the 'hilarious' nonpunchline, 'see what I'm saying is that all Christians are fucking insane', yep didn't go down well, should have just let the first bit percolate. 

Me not impressing some older couples by claiming that all Christians and religious people in general are insane lunatics, note to self: atheist philosophies do not necessarily equal punchlines...

Whoop! first time with my name on a poster though...

Tom and I have the traditional pre-gig smoke and drink

Young Tom Toms

Tom Moran and Kate Bouchier think about their doirty little secrets

They had these little pages where you were meant to write down your 'dirty little secret' mine reads: "I am a Ball Bag"....see above.

Had cheered up by this point...

'Will tell mucky stories about tgirls for food'

A consoling hug from young tom toms

Was it something I said? yes maybe as I said it through a microphone in a crowded room.

Cambridge Based comedy/poetry troupe 12 Guage in mid flow...

Kate with gun (not far as I know) either way it's a got a sexy touch of that video Samuel Jackson is watching in Foxy Brown, don't it...

The merriment progresses at Delaneys (aka 'Deshamey's' the after hours pup of choice for bar staff every Sunday/Monday and also most of the pissed up lunatics in Norwich who don't want to go home) with one of the 12 Guagers, talking comedy, drinking Guinness... it doesn't get any better than this, the odd ride would be nice...and some of them have been very odd.
