And that is the end of the list. Thanks. Maybe see you at a show.
I recently finished reading Hannah Fry’s book Hello World: How to Be Human In the Age of the Machine. It’s a clear, non-technical, myth deflating look at AI and the digital, similar to Tom Chatfield’s book How to Thrive in the Digital Age (2012) and the radio show The Digital Human, both of which I’ve extolled the virtues of.
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:
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.
