You wouldn't steal a handbag

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.

Hi Tinsie! Sorry for the delay in coming here, but these last weeks have been hectic; no, I’m not talking about the financial/economic crisis… ;))
For fun about the crisis, there is an awesome video of Bird and Fortune at You Tube; don't miss it... ;))
Australia? As for city, I'm Paris! Never tried country... Internet shopping? OK, but there is nothing like buying all those things you don't need at the Gourmet Shop... ;))
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is now on its 200th post: «The Libyan Sea»! Hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

I'm so glad you had some fun! The Monkey heard somewhere that laughter adds eight years to your life, so whenever we're all losing it (usually around the dinner table and usually due to someone's bodily functions) he says, "See, Mom! We can't be in trouble, we just added eight years to your life!" Just think, I don't even have to pay for the cab. :-)

Here's to longer life! :-)

@ GMG: Welcome back. I'll be round to read about the Libyan sea shortly.

@ Karen: The Monkey is wise beyond his years :-)

To longer life!

@ The dong: It was a perfect way to start the weekend :-)

@ Shadowfalcon: I think he comes back to London for a couple of shows at the end of his tour. Check out the link, I'm sure I saw London dates in there.

@ Lynn: :-)
