RIP Stan Lee.

95, a Superhero age.

And hopefully I'll be celebrating by seeing Hull off back up the M1 with nothing to show for the journey, except our jeers ringing in their ears.

Pints shall be consumed, either way 👍

Have had to postpone my football club Xmas do as it clashes with 999 playing at The New Cross Inn on Saturday 8th December.

My teammates are unimpressed but hey, what do they know?!

Sounds like he did the same set as he did at The 100 Club, right down to the encores. Hardly surprising, given the material that TRB did. Glad you enjoyed it, Phil  :)

Recorded it to watch (from behind the sofa) at a later date.

Reaction on Tw*tt*r ranged from "predictable" to "brilliant".

I'll find out which one it is in due course

That kid should give Mahrez lessons.

It's at times like this that I'd like to be saying something like:

"Anfield got a phone call from someone in France yesterday, asking if they wanted their ball back..."

...but my own bunch of clumsy chumps are hardly tearing up trees in their own division.

One day...

I wonder what inspired the flowers and dead bird motif? It is indeed uncannily like "Land of the Overdose" meets "In the Arms of my Enemy"!

Dunno: didn't have time to ask.

Watched Terry Edwards and Mark Bedford in their band 'Near Jazz Experience'. Ok, but I prefer their other various bands.

Stewart Lee did an updated version of his 80's club act, which was good fun. I've seen him do it before, but he adds topical things each time, which keeps it fresh.

The Nightingales are a rolling mawl of a band, taking no prisoners and no breaks. I like them (and their lookie-likey lp covers) a lot.

Saw Paul Merton doing his improv act the other day. He told a couple of jokes to start off with, the first being this:

A magician and a parrot are on stage on a cruise ship. Every time the magician tries to do a trick, the parrot ruins it by shouting out "It's up his sleeve!" or "There's a trapdoor!" or "The box has a false bottom to it!" This drives the magician crazy

Later on, the ship hits some rocks and sinks.

The only survivors are the parrot and the magician.

For two days, they sit in the lifeboat, not saying a word, just staring at each other.

Finally, the parrot says:

"Ok, I give up: what did you do with the boat?"

The Nightingales tomorrow in Hackney.

Stewart Lee doing the support!

Yes, sounds like a great trip!

Not at all jealous...

Great review, too.

Couldn't make the Unicorn gig last night  :(

My vertigo, which seems to be connected to the (hopefully) temporary deafness I'm experiencing in my left ear, makes me fall over rather too easily: not good when travelling.

Bugger!  >:(

And of course the last UK one was at The Hope in Carshalton organised by Fleagle (remember him!)

Who could forget Fleagle?

Me, for one...

Missed a chance for a gag there - he should have played "No Hop Street" at a beer festival!

Where's me coat?

Where's your coat?!

Hopefully, a friend will have put it on the first stagecoach out of town, followed swiftly by it's wearer, ahead of the stink of the terrible joke issued before it...

Pee-you!!  ;)

Many thanks for the review - shocked Tim played "The Drink" at a beer festival!

If TJ was here (anyone remember TJ?), he would point out the long heritage Tim has of playing at beer festivals and piss-ups in breweries!

I'm well aware of the Elland Brewery Earthbound gig. What struck me as being unusual was that a beer festival gig was arranged by someone without the slightest idea that some of those in attendance wouldn't have a clue who the bloke singing was!

At least with the Elland Brewery gig, everyone who was there was under no illusion whatsoever who the geezer with the guitar and vox was. They hadn't just turned up to a warm-water freaks meeting, only to find a kindly but spindly bloke randomly shouting punk rock at them!  ;)
