Yes there's no title for today's blog. That's probably the biggest news so far of my day, well apart from some cunt ringing me up and getting me out of bed from Arden credit, hassling me for money I don't have while I'm OWED FUCKIN LOADS for work I did in Australia that was promised to me a long time ago. Nothing worse when you've got to make excuses like Arthur fuckin Daley while some other cunt can't be arsed to pay you. Anyway enough of that anger, I've other things to occupy my mind at this late July stage.
It's getting nearer to Edinburgh and while I did myself a good rehearsal yesterday (sorry for the lack of blog, busy then taking the missus and bairn on a picnic), the show is still not quite there yet. I need the opening song, a song in the middle and I've got a cooky idea for a closing piece. I'll not tell you my walk on music but you'll hopefully find all this out tonight at The Live Theatre Newcastle where I'll be doing my most high profile preview as yet.
On Tuesday I did a preview at Edinburgh Stand or Stand 1 as it will be known during the fringe. Myself and Ro Campbell did our respective hours and Ro does seem to have a better, more interesting show than me it has to be said. I'd say that his has more scope because it's not on a specific theme like mine but nevertheless he's a funny man with funny material. I'd say he might go far that feller. Some of my stuff fell by the wayside (is that near Dundee?) but other bits went way better than I thought so you still never know with only little more than a week to go to show number 1.
Right it's time to leave now. I've got lots of things to do today and then a preview to try and crack tonight. Do come down to the live 0191 232 1232 or go to www.live.org.uk or indeed just turn up and pay, I'm sure there's tickets left, it should be great. Me and Radio DJ Tom Deacon. Speak tomorrow.
