It was a great time as usual and you are the host with the most! Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and for the laughs, my sides are hurting today from laughing so much.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

Another EXCELLENT evening of drinking, eating . . and, oh yeh, comedy.
I cannot believe that there is so much stuff that I have not even seen.

Note to self, for next time . . . Absinth, beer and red wine do NOT ultimately induce a feeling of well being.

Thanks again to Prof Taratonga for being such a good host and allowing so many reprobates into his home.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

The next "TV Comedy Series & Absinth" Night will be end of September.
NO SERIES THIS TIME: ONLY STAND UP COMEDY

So, start the search for your favorite 20min of Stand Up.

It will be at my place unless somebody would like to organise it at another place with more space.

And thanks to everybody for bringing along delicious food & booze (missed the stripper though).

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

I forgot to mention, that Monomixs home made mince pies were possibly the best that I have ever tasted. Better than mine? I would actually say yes

From results obtained in a separate, independent study, I can confirm this theory.

Like so many things, it's all in the rubbing in (although not how someone understood it on Friday evening, that was definitely not part of the recipe ).

Can't really say anything more that hasn't already been said - Friday was top. Great food, great folks and great chat, thanks Prof!

I'm putting in an early dibs on Stewart Lee for the stand up.

Prof, you mentioned end of September - let me/us know as soon as you know if you are thinking more of Sept. 23 or Sept. 30. Either date is perfectly fine with me, but I was asked to pick a weekend for a romantic getaway (gasp) and I want to make sure that the "getaway plan" does not interfere with my "outstanding company, absinthe drinking evening plans" with y'all.
In case of conflicts, absinthe rules, hehehe! - It's all a matter of priorities, and mine seem fairly clear, hehehe

Quote:

You already have "Dress to Kill", let me see if I can find "Glorious" anywhere. I was also thinking of George Lopez, but I am not sure - he might be a bit too much for some people...

Quote:

In addition to bringing some food, I would like to contribute to the absinthe stack this time. Can you recommend a place that sells it in/near Zurich and one or two brands of your choice? I would be most happy to oblige.

I agree with Basher. Rubbing or no rubbing

See you all soon!

You missed her?

You missed out, she was excellent.

And so was her friend.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

I am not an expert at stand-up comedy but I will do some research and bring something to watch.

Food Reservation - I will bring some homemade tiramisu - (I am still embarrased about my shambles of puff pastry )

***EDIT*** Oh yeah, Monomix's minces were YUM YUM YUMMY!

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / fourth Episode

Prof and all,

Can you suggest a place where I can buy a suitable* amount of absinthe to replenish the Prof.'s stock on the 23rd? Perhaps a favorite brand too? My knowledge about absinthe is very limited...

*To be defined what "suitable" means

Thanks!

P.S. As established last night, subscriptions for the "romantic weekend" are now closed, HAHAHA!

As my oncologist (doctor) is on holidays right now, my term in hospital is only in early Oct but whether I will be hungry is far from sure
