just played (if that's what comedians/ magicians do) in the back of a pub right by me, i'm amazed that this could even happen. it was pretty incredible, though short and with almost no magic (which i wasn't that bothered about).
possibly a shame that he seems to sabotage everything he does, but i guess he's got his reasons, he doesn't come across as the most stable of people.
i'm not quite sure if he really is racist or sexist or actually a complete dick, mostly i doubt it, he just seems angry maybe.
He ended pretty sharpish because of some cunts mindlessly heckling all the way through it and the organisers were too scared to say anything to them because they were big skinhead guys.
just like when i was at the cinema to see 'be kind rewind' on the weekend, i loved it, but it was almost spoiled by an entire row of 15 year olds talking and making 'hilarious' comments about it. but no one would say anything about it. Almost everyone in there was pissed off i'm sure, but everyone just let them get away with it- in the end I 'had a word' with them and the ran off pretty quick. the expected round of applause from the crowd never came.
and when i saw islands last night, some cunt in front of me was wearing a fucking cap, in the front row at a gig! and next to him was a fucking cock in a trilby! surely they realise that this is going to obstruct the view for anyone behind them?
i gave my spare ticket away, wasn't even offered a drink in return too.
people need to get some damn respect for the people putting time and effort into organising and/or attending things like this.
if i had not had such a strange (and unusually long) day this rant would not be required.
