Was that you with oldhand? We had to rush off home and it wasn't until after that I thought it might have been you. Hopefully it won't be too long before we get out again

Great night Guy and brilliant to see the place packed. Hope your head isn't too sore this morning

Re: SEAN HUGHES and CARL DONNELLY are Funny Laundering in Zurich

Thanks guys.

Having 4 Swiss people staring at me like possums too close to the stage was a total head messer. They did not laugh once, and it totally screwed me. I guess I gained some experience from that and it is a good thing in hindsight.

Least I have bigger balls than Higgybaby. He is a whining bit*ch. If he does not like it, then he should not come. He won't be missed.

Delighted to see both the proud parents and tickled that you chose to come to the show for your first proper post-baby night out together.

I think it's likely called 'pickled'

The pull of Tash and Sean Hughes was too much (oh and the handy factor of the in-laws being on hand to baby sit)

This is totally pathetic being made to stand outside for 25 minutes right up to the start of thhe show
Why can't we go in and mix and have a beer at the bar?
Utterly ridiculous.
Sorry Guy but I won't queue like this in future.
Why stress the punters before the show and lose takings at the bar?

Stop beating yourself up Natasha, there are enough barstewards around to do it! Your material was good, just the nerves slowed down the delivery.
I'm looking forward to the next time already.

Re: SEAN HUGHES and CARL DONNELLY are Funny Laundering in Zurich

I just typed up a review in the Quick Reply bit, completely forgetting about the headf**kingly annoying "Invalid Event Specified" thing and lost it, so meh, but i'll summarize. Both acts were strong and different enough to set themselves apart from eachother. I think the first act Carl seemed to run on past his allotted time due to going off on audience tangents (which I enjoyed, but also amusing to see Guy frantically flashing him with a light from behind the bar to no avail ), which cut into the Seans somewhat as he was clearly pushed for time at the end, but nevertheless he finished strongly.

Was nice not to have as many lamoid hecklers this time, although I was stood very near to a large dude at the bar who (as well as talking loudly to the guy next to him for most of the the second half) suddenly out of nowhere retched up his drink all over the floor in front of him, gave it a quick look, then carried on as if nothing happened. Not pretty.

All in all, good night.

Stop beat ing yourself up, it was good and you got a respectable amount of laughs, with more experience you'll get more comfortable up there. If I got on stage like that i'd be a gibbering wreck unable to remember a word of the material... be proud of yourself.

EDIT - I completely forgot... thanks also Uncle Max (you know why).

It's easy to diss, but standing in front of hot spot lights on a stage before a full house of strangers is ballsy. She'll be fine, don't worry
Pity she didn't have the professional courtesy to shut up while Sean Hughes was on. She and A.N.Other were yacking away upstairs in the smoking area not even watching the show throughout the first 15 minutes of Sean's set.

Re: SEAN HUGHES and CARL DONNELLY are Funny Laundering in Zurich

Actually we were in a corner talking very quietly. I'm getting tired of your policing. You did it to me a few moons ago and your attitude was bullying to say the least. Maybe you should stay away if you don't like people enjoying themselves, it is not a library.

While we are on the subject, i wish (and I know it's not easy) it was possible to find a place were we could all stay and have a relaxed drink and chat together. It's such a shame when there is a great, mixed group of people and we all have to go our separate ways when we are still buzzing from the atmosphere.

Re: SEAN HUGHES and CARL DONNELLY are Funny Laundering in Zurich

I suggest someone creates a social event for after the next Funny Laundry, drinks at the Twist or the White Rose eg. Maybe we should also create a 25 min queue at the door too.

Get a ticket before hand - problem solved
Will do. Good advice
I never normally get a ticket (or need to) at Mascotte apart from the big gigs. And I've been going since the first shows at the beginnnng at Maers in Albisriederplarz. And I've shamelessly promoted Guy's endeavouurs for years.
Last night was a first and really took me aback....

Glad to see it so packed. I hope it stays like this, Guy truly deserves it.

Sorry guys and gals for all my moaning. I already apologised to Guy for my rant.
