Sunday 17 August 2008: Not Michael Palin...
A show among a thousand long list
Bagging the punters
Flyers your hunters
Some shows better seen pissed
Though this is one that stands up in its own right, and is very small and non-hyped.
Russell McGilton at the end of his Fringe Show, Bombay to Beijing by Bicycle. I had got in touch with him originally for the citycycling magazine and doing something on his Festival Fringe show about the journey. We've met up a few times now and had a few drinks, and he's coming to dinner on Tuesday. Today I was back at his show for some pictures.
At the end he asked how many in the audience had been expecting a Palin-esque travelogue. Which this most definitely is not.
Busy weekend of shows (Tim Minchin is an unmitigated genius, Jimmy Carr disappointing), exhibitions, working in the garden and a first ride on the new bike to give it a shakedown and see how it feels and what I needed to tweak in the setup (bad weather and illness had prevented it so far).
Day off tomorrow to go and watch Scotland play England in a one day international.
