Great intro by Paul Norcoss got things off to a grand start. The projected images worked well; the show was the right length; and I got a fair few laughs from the lovely audience. Even the hot and drunk rock chick heckler added to the occasion.
Literally Bradford’s Uncut Fringe Festival.
Glyn Watkins does stuff and shows things at the Sparrow. Includes rhymes & a collection. Sun 22nd May. 19.00.
I was walking up the ginned from the old Shearbridge pub to Laistridge Lane, when I saw a young, black cat licking up rice behind a bollard.
I stopped to make cat noises at it, and noticed clingfilm wrapped bread on top of the bollard.
I opened the clingfilm, discovered it was tuna, and looked up to see the cat running even further away than it had managed since my cat noises.
I did think to throw the roll down anyway, but it was a big room, enough to start a hundred baby rats out on life, and it felt good, and fresh. So I took a bite.
If I am really ill tomorrow then this can be a lesson to me.
Mark Clayton and Nick Settle, from The Circles, will be joining Glyn Watkins at the Sparrow tonight for the Pie & Proud of Bradford Show, playing acoustic indie (hopefully including the Only Ones’ Another Girl Another Planet. One of my all time favourite.
