|10:12 pm - We did it for the Lulz!|
So, since I enjoyed last week's comedy session in Northcote, I decided to join the gang (or team or what have you) and go again this week.
And I have to say, it was even better this week. As well as Ross Noble MC-ing again, we had Lawrence Leung, Geraldine Quinn and... some other people, whose names I forget. They were funny, though (well, most of them were, anyway).
Highlights of the show included:
- Lawrence Leung's Power Point presentation on why "The brooding attractiveness of Colin Firth is a myth". I haven't laughed that hard in ages, it was brilliant.
- Geraldine Quinn's songs. Yes, all of them.
- Ross Noble's inability to keep on-topic for two minutes straight. We had some fabulous random tangents...
- fa11ing_away becoming a running joke, and unintentional punchline as "The Girl who failed Anatomy" (Sorry, Rina, but it was funny)
- And Ross Noble wore my hat!
Actually, that brings my count of comedians who have complimented my headwear up to three now.
Oh, and after the show, when we went for late night Turkish food, we almost had a random guitar player start serenading us.
Shall most likely be back again next week, even if I am not as familiar with the names. But this week was so terribly, terribly funny, even if we did have to sit on the floor.
Current Mood: cheerful

Geraldine Quinn is awesome. I turned into a gushing fanboy last time I saw her and got her to sign my copy of her CD.
You know I can actually imagine that. I may have to check out her full show at some point. Or one of her CDs, for that matter...

Yeah, I bought her CD at a gig at the last comedy festival, and I humbly asked if she'd sign it, and she said "Sure. What would you like me to write?" and I said "uh.... I don't know."
So she wrote "To Andrew. I don't know. Geraldine Quinn (funny funny, always with the funny)."
That's rather amusing.
Which is good for a comedian, I suppose.
Has anyone given Ross a muffin yet?
No, but he was given a Ninja.
That doesn't surprise me. :)
It was a custom made ninja, with Ross!hair.
I totally want my own ninja.

But I don't have an ickle toy one!
I will not feel complete until I have one.
We will make you a ninja doll.
He's probably right. Hugh Grant > Colin Firth.
This may cause controversy in the iPartment, but I agree with you.
Hugh Grant won my last LJ poll on the topic 8 to 6.
