Looking forward to a live review from Gruntski

I’ve just been talking to Gruntski on the phone and he’s bringing along a few people to the open mic night I’ll be performing at tonight.  This will be a first for me – one of my blog regulars coming along to a live performance.  On the off chance anyone else from Melbourne reads this it’s at the All Nations Backpackers, 2 Spencer Street, Melbourne at about 8.30pm.

Performing to drunk backpacker should be… an experience.  I’d actually prefer a large crowd of hostile drunks to a small, indifferent crowd.  Like Gruntski said, it will be a good introduction to Australian “culture” for the backpackers.  I’m thinking of opening the piece by saying “Welcome to Australia, motherfuckers!  If you think vegemite’s bitter, wait until you taste this.” 

I’m using this opportunity to refine the routine that I’m submitting to The Comedy Channel for their competition to get a spot on air.  I have the rest of the week to work on it so every chance to try something out is worth it.  Here are the first two iterations of my “Agile Comedy” experiment that have been posted to YouTube:

Just to expand the nerd talk, tonight’s performance will be beta release 1.

  1. Stoked, mate. Looking forward to it! If anyone else reading is planning on showing up tonight, leave a comment, so we’ll know who’s planning on being there.

    I’ll be wearing a grey shirt, jeans and boots, with my sunglasses sitting on top of my head. I look like a mad bastard, with short hair and a goatee…

    Hope to see lots of Melbournite Mr Angry supporters there tonight.

    Mr Angry- maybe you could get your kids to make some of those pin-on buttons that say “Vote 1-Mr Angry”, and those of us who intend on seeing you “live”, could request/buy a button from you/your kids- kind of like Ze Frank’s sportsracer shirts/duckie shirts.

    just a thought


  2. I am so jealous! I want to GO SEE YOU!

  3. Gruntski: thanks for coming along mate, it was great to catch up! So far as merchandising goes, yeah, if I ever get organised that sounds like a good idea 😀

    Sandra: I’m not quite ready for my world tour yet!
