Edinburgh Fringe 2014 – Day 13

Yesterday’s show was a definite return to form and I was only a few seats away from having a full room.

For the first time ever, I had ten quiz teams who all had pens. The show itself was decent, if it not spectacular as a few things fell flat. It can still be improved further, but I did get my second biggest takings of the run with £52 in my bucket. I think it is accurate to say that the show was £44 better than the previous day.

I have been incredibly lucky to get an audience in double figures every day, but I am not entirely sure if the crowd I am getting in are always necessarily those who will go for my whimsical intelligent-stupidity and all the niche references it entails, or if it is quite the show they were expecting. Nevertheless, they are still a crowd to be won over and it is up to me to do that. A few things that have got big laughs at other gigs have now fallen flat on a number of occasions, so I may have to do some editing or listen back to recordings to determine if I am doing something wrong.

As I am now officially on holiday, I am going to make an effort to see as many shows as I can. I saw Beth Vyse last night, who was bizarre and brilliant. Go and see her.
