Had some great shows with City Impro and Improbotics at Brighton Fringe; the majority of shows were sold out so that was an added bonus.
For Laugh Island one night, having been part of the couple who had “won”, we had our picture taken with the audience. The look on my face in the photo (included in those above) has been described as ‘gormlessly happy’ and, slightly less kindly, as having ‘a sad grin on my stupid face’. I’m using ‘being in character’ as my excuse for that expression.
The next bunch of shows are part of Camden Fringe: Improbotics at the Hen and Chickens (Fri 2nd and Sat 3rd August, 9pm); Laugh Island at the Canal Cafe Theatre (Fri 9th to Sun 11th, 7:30pm); and Improv Death Match at Aces and Eights (Fri 9th, Sat 10th and Fri 16th, Sat 17th, 10:15pm).

After a good time was had last year, I’m off to Brighton Fringe again.

I have seen Bob Dylan live. I wasn’t sure at first. I remembered seeing him perhaps at Wembley Stadium, because I had a vague memory of talking with my friend Tim as we made our way out of the gig. But I thought this might have been a dream, a false memory. But no, I was there. I found the ticket stub:

Sur Les Docks – Droit Devant
After our show at the Faversham Fringe (a good fun show – photos as proof follow this) I had an hour to kill before my train back to London. So I went in the first pub with loud music coming from it.

This Friday evening Plus Support are taking an hour long show – Paversham! – to The Arden Theatre as part of Faversham Fringe.
It won’t be the first time I’ve been to The Arden Theatre but it will be the first time I’ve performed there. Looking forward to it. Tickets.

It was a great Camden Fringe with City Impro. Some very good shows. One show was even standing room only after a nice mention in Time Out magazine.
We were joined by lots of great improvisers. Too many to mention individually, but they arrived from such groups as ClusterFox, PostScript, Punderstandably, and the RH Experience. I recommend them all to you.
And I’m pleased an example of the multi-layered, intelligent, thoughtful, and sometimes satirical, improvised comedy I contributed was captured on camera:
City Impro are back for our Rosemary Branch Theatre residency on Friday 7th September. Tickets.
Plus Support – the (other) improv group I’m part of – begin our Sunday residency at The Nursery Theatre’s The Carousel today. More details here.
