Going For A Song: ‘Droit Devant’

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.

Paversham! at Faversham Fringe

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.

City Impro and Camden Fringe: The Dust Settles

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.

Had by art

Had some great shows with City Impro at the Brighton Fringe.

As mentioned, I spent some of the time handing out flyers dressed in an Edwardian “swimsuit”. If you weren’t lucky enough to spot me, here I am (on the right) suitably attired with another City Impro member, Vasek:

As I pulled on the swimsuit for the first time, I recalled the story told by Patti Smith in Just Kids about her last visit to see Robert Mapplethorpe in hospital before he died:

I stood by his bed and took his hand … Suddenly he looked up and said, ‘Patti, did art get us?’ Perhaps it did but no one could regret that. Only a fool would regret being had by art; or a saint.

We (City Impro) have a show tonight at the Rosemary Branch Theatre. Details here if you want to come along.

Brighton Fringe Shows

I’m heading to the Brighton Fringe with City Impro this bank holiday weekend. We’re doing two different shows: City Impro By The Sea and Sin City Impro. If you’re in Brighton come along.

You may even get lucky (or, I concede, unlucky) and bump into me handing out the above flyers wearing (weather permitting) an Edwardian swimming costume. Be kind.
