Comedy night suggestion
The main act is Dougie Dunlop (a very funny
guy and a Hibee), he's going to let me know
his support act shortly. We'll probably have a few pipers as
well for atmosphere.
It'll take place upstairs at the Fountain's
Abbey Pub on Friday 25th October, doors
opening around 8.30pm. Directions: come out of Paddington
Station and turn left down Praed Street, the Fountain's Abbey is
on the right. Tickets are only £5 but we
would prefer that they are bought in advance
so that we know how many we can sell on the night. I've had a very
positive response generally and don't want hundreds of people
turning up on the night and being disappointed
(numbers are of course limited). The tickets
haven't been printed yet but when they are (within the next week or
two, I'll let you know), they'll be available from
If this gig is successful, then I have plans
to invite other comics. Hence, I'm keen to
broaden the appeal as much as possible and see if a few
such gigs can be sustained.
meeting will be held at the Willam Wallace on the 12th
