Dear Friends of German Comedy,
Hope you’re well!
Earlier this month I have been running in a new 20 minute stand-up set and done several gigs in a cheerful Central London comedy club. The pricing structure of the place means the audience is mostly young and its location means the audience is mostly not from round here.
Reference points such as Viz magazine, Auf Wiedersehen Pet and Richard Clayderman were totally unknown to them. I got considerable enjoyment out of this until I realised that in 30 years time there will be stand up comedians swooning over Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
Absolute rubbish! What you want is: A Box of Fine German Wine and some DVDs. You can watch the latest instalment of this classic series below.
That’s it for now – I’m off to Hastings, the ideal place to lie low. It’s by the sea so you can retreat with minimal notice and, even better, it’s Amber Rudd’s constituency and as such you’re very unlikely to ever bump into her.
See you soon and enjoy the last of the summer (wine)
PS: Please find below a list of upcoming gigs. It would be great to see you at one of those.
