Havana Laff

Do you see what I did there with the title? Havana Laff? Having A Laugh? This is why I think I have Asperger Syndrome. Which by the way, is an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and one which you can learn more about here. It's one of those things that has a list of symptoms which when read seem extremely pertinent to the current consumer of said list. But in my tiny mind, it reads like a Who's Who of Comedians and their material.

Anyway, I'm wittering on about spectrum disorders because I'm not sure I want to analyse the gig I did on Sunday night. It was for Mirth Control, in Exeter, at the Havana Bar. So, what to say? There were people there. I don't think they could hear very well, because the acoustics in the room were a big shivering bag of piffle. The only way to compensate for that is to speak much more clearly, but then that starts to feel odd in your gob, and you quickly end up back in your old rhythm. There's really nothing else I want to add to that.

If you haven't already discovered it, why not have a listen to Daniel Kitson's Listening Club on Resonance FM which is a beautiful way to spend the early hours of Tuesday mornings (late night Mondays). He's captured the atmosphere of the show he did in Edinburgh perfectly.
