Vomiting Butterflies

28thMar. × ’10

So I’ve already done a weekend of shows for the Comedy Festival and it was brilliant. Despite the near debilitating nerves, it all came together and I had a whole bunch of people come who weren’t even friends or friends of friends – that’s a good sign methinks. People seem to be particularly responsive to the Nazi joke and the Sales Guy Happy Place bit. What are those bits? You’ll have to hit the Workers Club to find out.

I’ve still got fourteen shows to do and my liver is already keeping me up at night with loud weeping sounds. I think I’ll drown it into submission tonight with some of the $2 beers on offer. Also, Tuesday nights will be a 2 for 1 type deal on the door – just email me at frenchelbow@gmail.com if you’re thinking of coming down and I’ll make sure a seat is saved for you.

I do have a wee favour to ask of my fellow fluorescent prisoners. If you enjoy the blog then it’d be a huge help to me if you posted the following link on your facebook status (or blogs and other social networks, hell you can graffiti that link in a public toilet if you want). Word of mouth still seems to be the best way of getting info about the show out there.

By the way, this year they are doing a People’s Choice Award – even if you can’t see the show it’d be great if you could vote Dead Under Fluorescent Lights as they’re giving away a $5,000 cash prize. With that kind of money I could almost break negative. Almost.

I hope to see you there so that I can amuse/depress/offend you in person!

    Hey stranger! Didn’t I tell you I though it would be a good idea for the team to go see you…although now the whole department is coming to see the show! LOL

    More the merrier I guess. Glad the show is reaking of success. See you April 9th!

    Remember, don’t hold back

    Still swearing,

    Hey Simon,

    I saw your show on Monday night – fantastic! I hope you’re feeling a helluva lot better, you looked like you might collapse at any moment. That would’ve been kinda funny. It’s okay, there’s always a Dr in the crowd when someone faints.
