Last night we went out to a stand up comedy/cabaret. Though Thursday is not our favourite day for this it was the only way to see this particular bunch of people. (Hulphond).Their show had had an excellent five star rating in the news paper. So all tickets sold like hotcakes and were hard to obtain. So we searched for tickets for an hour or so and found some with decent seating in a smaller town about 35 minutes from home and near SOs work, but on Thursday. We decided we could cope with that and bought the tickets in eager anticipation.
I took off from work at 5, met up with SO at his place of work, we grabbed something to eat and went to see something special and funny. We were ready to be entertained and looked forward to it.
Were we entertained? Well not quite. It was funny………………. in places. It was interesting…………………in places. What it was not; was excellent. It was ok at best. Most of it was of a pubescent level of fun, flat, predictable. The changes between scenes were well done, but they used characters and really after 10 of those they started to morph into each other. They sang too and quite well I do admit. And sure we had a giggle, we had a few laughs but no belly ache, not cramps in the corner of my mouth, just a general feeling of “was that all?” We left the theatre saying; their next show we will definitely give a miss.
So apart from this blog and feeling somewhat sleep deprived this morning it is not going to stay in my memory long I am afraid. Has it dampened our willingness to do stuff? Hell no. Just today we saw college tour with Eddie Izzard one of my favourite British comedians. He is starting his world tour soon and guess what? He is coming to the Netherlands in April. I just bought tickets for Thursday (Friday and Saturday were already sold out). It will be a long day as I am in a training during the day and have to be in on Friday. Still who cares We are off to see the Izzard!
