Well, November was fantastic. I had a brilliant weekend of gigs opening for Karl Spain at the Laughter Lounge in Dublin. I got over to London for a slot at the Comedy Cafe Theatre’s New Act night and was lucky enough to snag a spot at the BackYard Comedy Club the next day.
I also put on a gig for a cause that is near and dear to my heart: being the Saturday night entertainment for an ultimate frisbee tournament. Marcus O Laoire and Tom O’Mahony were good enough to perform as well, and we had a blast performing to a great group of teams in the Duke pub in Dublin. On a side note, my team went on to win the tournament the next day, despite (or perhaps because) I was only available for the quarterfinal match on Sunday morning. G’wan Mixed Veg!
Just two more gigs in 2013 for me. On Monday the 16th of December I’ll be in the Stag’s Head at The Comedy Crunch. Always a great night; be sure to follow them on Twitter to stay ahead of upcoming gigs.
Finally, I was lucky enough to be asked to appear in the New Act Final of the Comedy Cafe Theatre in London. I’ve been on two of their Wednesday-night New Act nights this year, and those shows are always a blast; house MC Jimmy James Jones turns good crowds into great ones. It’s a wonderful platform for new comics in London; highly recommended. Really looking forward to the final; I don’t think I’ve much of a chance of winning, but hopefully I’ll do well enough to secure a gig or two there in 2014. Fingers crossed.
