Mud Festival of fun…..

As some of us are aware, its the annual Glastonbury festival weekend, so the music in today show was choc full of artists playing there…. Knowing the good old british weather, I know where I’d prefer to hear these bands and knowing the facilities….well you get the picture.  On a positive note, I finally got my mop top cut, well I say mop top, more an over grown rockabilly ‘Joey Essex’ bouffant style, which my barber proceeded to recreate the Joey Essex look, despite the fact we both had been slating the lad; methinks I was stitched…..Not ream.

Twofer’s came from Elbow, who are second to Coldplay on the pyramid stage…..personally Elbow deserve to headline a stage. We played ‘Days like these’ and ‘Open arms’.

My Comedy show picks for this week……

E4 Udderbelly: Rory Bremner and Friends @ Southbank – 27th June 2011

The E4 Udderbelly brings us a rare opportunity to see Britain’s best known impressionist live on stage. Rory Bremner’s clever mix of comedy and satire will be complemented by stand-up Hattie Hayridge (from TV’s Red Dwarf) and the award-winning entertainer Ian Shaw.

Jenny Eclair’s “Old Dog, New Tricks” @ Southbank – 27th June 2011

Fresh from her stint on “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!”, Jenny Eclair is bringing her “Old Dog, New Tricks” show to the E4 Udderbelly. Don’t expect anything that involves balancing stuff on her nose or jumping through hoops, because her hips are too big and she has a tendency to fall over.

Rich Hall, at the Comedy Store – 29th June 2011

American comedian Rich Hall will be joining the Comedy Store Players for a night of comedy improvisation at the Comedy Store. Other comedians on the bill include Andy Smart, Neil Mullarkey, Suki Webster, Steve Steen, Lee Simpson.
