Magners Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Leicester Square Theatre.

I had no clue what I had booked to see, it seems. Was expecting to see Robin Ince and Josie Long do an hour each. Instead, I saw Arthur Smith, Kevin Eldon, Tony Law, Josie Long, Craig Hill, Miles Jupp, Robin Ince, John Maloney and Richard Herring do 5 minutes each. The gig was compered by Susan Calman and was organised to promote the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.

LOVED Susan Calman (her stage persona is slightly psychotic in an adorable way). I've been meaning to see her for a while as i'd heard such good things and she lived up to the hype. Law, Long and Jupp (swoon!) were my fave comedians on the night. The crowd were pretty drunken for a Tuesday and it all felt a wee bit mainstream.

A thought.

I ate "exotic fruit salad" on a crowded London bus the other night. It amused me.
