Don’t wanna bang on but this has easily been one of the most STUFF filled months of me life. Blown SO much cash but had SUCH a laugh and I will probably never forget some of these nights.
Probably (definitely) the funniest night of my life.
Daniel Kitson and Tommy Wiseau in the space of a few hours!
Kitson was on the purest of form as always, even though what we saw was a stand up preparation show, half his set was made up on the spot then written down by the barman for next time. After seeing what other comedians were going to “his good lady comedy” he’s returned to “fucking nail it” all over again.
Comedy being about as easy as taking a shit, when you really need a shit. i shouldn’t be putting my dick on this… I just found it. don’t applaud that, and don’t think if we met we’d get on. basically 45 minutes of squealing with laughing and pretty much rolling into people’s laps… then 45 minutes of staggered laughter and bare honesty as kitson explained his plans for the upcoming set, tested material, worked out new lines, and explained how fucking amazing it was going to be, whether or not we agreed.
Then… One of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had. Nothing compares seeing the worst/weirdest film ever, to seeing the worst/weirdest film ever in a room full of fans that have dressed up as the characters, created their own theme songs, know every line inside out, and scream pre planned commentary and deconstruction after every single line. Honestly couldn’t keep myself from rocking the fuck out of my chair the whole way through. Was actually hurting and it just kept coming.
He’s your best friend! Wife from the future! Go go go go go go.. Alcatraz! SPOON!!!!!! Who are you!? fuck the fuck off Denny! SLAAAAAAGGGG. He’s your best friend!! Close the door! Sex Scene!! 28!? Get the fuck up it’s 28!! Mission Impossible! Worlds Fastest Transaction! What candle?? What Music?? What sexy dress?? He’s your best friend!!
I actually felt like I’d been gurning like a beaned up chav on the train home (530am obvs, never sleep) then realised my face was killing from smiling. Trying to explain the room to a couple of kids who to be honest did not seem that impressed. Oh yeah, actually meeting Tommy Wiseau!?? Corpse paint wearing head case, he’s not even a shit robot. And btw the way, unless you wanna be pestered to hell into a club, there is nowhere open in leicester square past 11. Green park looks amazing snowed up.
