Troma Night On Location

Listen up, folks, because this week’s Troma Night is a little unusual:

  • 5pm: folks who want an early start gather at the Arts Centre for The Thing. Only for the brave.
  • 7pm: a chance to eat, if you went to The Thing and you’re going to see the next film, too.
  • 8pm: Troma Night starts, at the Arts Centre cinema, at our normal kick-off time… the first film: Severance. Which, it must be said, looks ace.
  • 10pm: still at the Arts Centre, a mystery film! Wooo!
  • Midnight: a vote will be taken as to whether Troma Night will end or if we’ll all retreat to the safety of the small-screen for another film!

Thanks Paul for the reminder about the films. If you haven’t got tickets yet, it’s not too late, but try to get them tomorrow daytime to maximise your chances, particularly for the stunning-looking Severance.

Things to bear in mind about this unusual Troma Night On Location:

  • There’s no pizza scheduled. Don’t forget to eat, or you won’t be able to throw up.
  • Please tell everybody who might not have read this blog post in time! I’ll be leaving a sign on the door of The Cottage, but I still wouldn’t want to be responsible for some fool turning up at 8 and standing outside one of the usual venues by their lonesome! Spread the word!

And finally: if you were planning to see me tell gags on Sunday night, please read the update to my earlier blog post (I’ll still be there on Sunday, mind, and you should be there too).

Open Mic: Attempt Three

Sunday, 8:30pm, The Angel, for Bash The Banana, the thing that is what Ground Zero was – just about the only open mic comedy gig you’ll find this far West, without swimming. And like last time, which went really badly, and the time before, which went really well, I’ll be picking up the microphone and telling a couple of gags. It’d be great if you felt brave enough to come along and show some much-needed support, particularly after the disaster that was my last open mic session! So come along to Aber’s most… variable… comedy night. It’ll be a blast. Hope to see you there.

Note: There is a small chance that I’ve misread my calendar and Sunday night is not Bash The Banana at all, but is instead Gorilla Monsoon. It’s still comedy, and it’ll be less of a gamble on quality, but you won’t see me performing. Unlikely, but possible. Just thought I’d warn you.

UPDATE: Matt’s comment (while originally in the wrong place) below suggests that this Sunday is Gorilla Monsoon, not Bash The Banana. Amazing that he manages to stay so well-informed, despite the landlord at The Angel telling me otherwise. I’ll still be going, and you should too, but you’ll be hearing no jokes from me. Damnit, these people need to keep their website up-to-date.
