Last night a group of us went to see Ed Byrne at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith (somewhere in the depths of West London - £30 in a cab - ouch). It was my first stand-up comedy gig and I loved every minute of it. We all needed a good laugh after our hectic weeks (three of the group work in the City - need I say more?) and a good laugh is what we got, again and again and again.
This is one of the jokes from the show, making fun of the "you wouldn't steal a handbag" clip found at the start of most DVDs these days.
If you're a fan of Ed Byrne, or you're simply looking for a fun night out, he's touring the UK all through October and November and is scheduled to appear in Reading, Exeter, Brighton, Leicester, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and so on. A full set of dates is available on his website. He is highly recommended by all four of us who watched last night's show.
