My funny old life

On Saturday my dear friend C took me to a comedy club. We both really enjoy stand up and the last time we went we saw Russell Kane who was great and another guy who we can't remember his name but now has his own TV show. So we had high hopes.

When we saw a man trying to fit through a narrow door with a guitar on his back and boing back like a cartoon we laughed, who knew that would be the only laugh of the night?

Then he turned and I realised I'd been on 3 dates with him, and your auntie's not laughing anymore. He's a stand up comedian who was the least funny man I've ever met, I genuinely thought I was way funnier than he was.

After watching his act, C agreed, I am so much more entertaining. C put the card for a stand up competition in my bag and thinks I should have a go, what thinketh you dear readers, would you come cheer your auntie on?

Never mind, the gin flowed, the chips we had in the interval were good, we agreed that there are no good men left to date where we live and I am still way too fussy. Thank God for friends.

Having just latched on to your blog, I think you should definitely give it a go - it's always been a secret fantasy of mine funnily enough but I'm not brave enough!

DO IT!

I would travel from the north just to cheer you on! Go for it...

If you do it, I may have to actually book a ticket and fly "across the pond" just to witness it.

Stay picky - otherwise you end up with someone who carries a guitar through a narrow door and goes boing. And we can't have that, now can we?
