It’s my latest idea with the Notting Hill venue struggling due to the location, so instead of trying to get the people to the venue, why not bring the comedy to the people.
Tonight, I was excited though a little nervous as this would be in a new venue and therefore I would need to think quickly to overcome any major obstacles like wires needing to cross doors openings, light pouring through massive windows, or large tables filling 80% of the room.
To my excitement the first thing I see in the room is a huge pair of glass double doors leading to a roof terrace! Next I see 6 massive windows and a more large tables than I could shake a stick at… shit! Luckily I was kinda excepting this so I had arrived a 4pm armed with a lot of black duct tape
There was no need to worry, the night was a huge success, the audience laughed as the comics did there magic. I tied it all together as the MC and though I found it quite hard tonight on stage, I feel happy to be back up there.
I really liked the ‘Pop Up’ comedy idea, as it is a fresh way to doing comedy in different locations. Obviously there will be the usual concerns of whether the event is able to house an event and whether the locals will want to get involved.
But as always, I like to think ‘nothing ventured nothing gained’. Also this was the first gig where we made an actual profit! Yahoo.
