Well the week started well with hard hearted hannah on Tuesday a great jug band show, With some great music and songs. This was followed the same day by RAW: freestyle mc run by Baba israel from control which was outstanding and featured 4 MC’s battleing it out with some games and fancy mouth work.
Thursday had the outstanding Instant Wit and the suggestables. Imagine who’s line is it anyway on acid. One of the best shows I have seen all year and well worth a looksee.
Unfortunatly my week is not ending so well with one of the dullest comics I have ever heard. I know comedy is all subjective but…..
I am however smiling.
What is currently happenig at the front of the stage is however not what is amusing me.
upstage of said comic is a long black drape which hides another show which was on earlier and again later. The show is a dance piece done in disco style on dance floor and under neons and uv.
The finale is just under uv light and sees the dancers throwing handfulls of little white pads all over the stage. Which looks very cool.
The same white sticky backed pads you stick on chair feet so they don’t scratch the floor. The same ones who’s backs come of if you ever so much as blow them and weld themselves to your drawer bottom.
No one thought to check these………
So currently upstage of the comic and the black drape are 3 crew, the shows director, 2 dancers and 2 front of house staff picking, scraping , rubbing and swearing trying to remove approx 100 of these pads off the dance floor (unable to use cleaner as it will damage the floor) without damaging it within the next 40mins.
My job is never dull
Surprisingly I now have 2 days off and inted to do somthing interesting with them. I feel some pumpkin carving coming on and trick or treating with P as V has made a fantastic spiders costume for her which she is pestering to wear.
Tis all for today.
