clue: it's a man and he has a TV show
TheBeautifulOnes_ came onstage to a sold out audience - oui
I'm well lamestream
from Bloc Party
fappable got it. pretty excited.
it was him, right?
2 week tour of the UK's swimming baths
Its a russell howard show
how many people were there?
doesn't he gig to arenas and stuff?
There were 150 people there and many more turned away.
I would post a video on here when one comes out, but it'd just get the piss taken out of it.
as long as its hilariously funny from start to end then it will escape the pisstaking
Or a select few of us :D
he did a 'gig' in my pub
his flatmate (i think) was originally on the bill and pulled out so russell decided to do a set instead. in front of 20 people. good times.
you getting roundly mocked on here when starting off on your stand up lark. Sounds like you're getting some big gigs and success with it. Fair play to you mate - well done.
WHAT. A. THREAD.
Didn't think it was that long ago. Fair play for keeping it up though, I often think I'd like to try it but I haven't got the balls. Also don't think I could be funny enough for long enough. Never tried actually writing anything though, just that thing when you watch shit comedians and think that you're better than them innit
and hes always bugging me to do it. We should do a duo. You could dress as a salt of the earth miner with your accent, and Id be a spiv with my stupid accentless patois. We'd literally having them laugh so much their heads would literally fall off.
I'll move to manchester immediately
I run a pro night in Coventry. Maybe I could do a DiS-centric middle section one week...
That sounds cool, I know there are a few other standups on here. I'll PM you.
can't be hard to find out
Only Russell Grant knows about it so far.
but the internet yielded no results for it
it doesn't say Russell Howard, it says secret guest. But that was who it was.
not your usual student comedy, she's sharp and insightful
called Harry Wright Lake.
i hope you didn't write it, i really do
it's all a bit unpleasantly hashtag-banter on that page, isn't it?
Even more so with student comedy I'd guess
It did come across like that. I didnt doubt him at all and presumed it was a secret show as hes doing arena shows next february!
is a genuinely lovely man.
also said that he doesnt like doing shows during the Edinburgh fringe so more people pay money to go see lesser known people
He was really nice, quite shy and very professional. He told all the supports how much he enjoyed our sets and which bits he liked best, which wasn't necessarily what you'd expect from a celebrity.
the bigger ones are often the nicest ones.
Russell Howard is a really nice guy by all accounts. I've seen him in the street and on stage but never spoken to him. I know Richard Herring is good friends with him.
TBO is actually really really funny.
TBO, can we come to your next gig please? are you doing one for fenino?
hello DiS hivemind this is me. some gender references have been changed because it's easier.
next few things are just Fresher's Week shite, I might come for a drink at Fenino though, so you'll probably squeeze some puns out of me after a few beers.
you told that jailbreak thread in a DiS thread once iirc, that was a weird irl/dis crossover for me.
but this is good.
would be that you could slow down 30% or more at times
but this was engaging & largely dextrous
stop pretending to be straight. the longer you do this the more you play yourself into a corner
I do it because someone described me as 'the gay one' which misses the point - they aren't jokes about my sexuality.
and coming out on stage is actually a pretty cool experience. Generally, people really don't give a shit. And when they do, it's exciting and challenging in the best way.
OR lie about it
I mean, as others have said, you need to slow down in your delivery, but you seem likeable. are you coming to fenino then?
where's it actually at? (I know it's in Cambridge obviously - are we convening in a pub or something)?
be good to see it. Top effort, btw, hope it went well.
