I am late with October’s newsletter.
Sorry about that.
The reason for this lateness is that I have left it quite late in the month to do it.
A BIC FOR HER – SOHO THEATRE
Well would you believe it? After years of performing mainly to my technician and agent, the Soho run has sold out.
I wonder what sort of people booked? I look forward to finding out. I hope my technician was able to get a ticket.
More dates have been ambitiously added in case you missed out. Jan 6th-18th.
Please come to one of the extra dates, even if you’ve seen the show before. It’ll probably improve over the month. Or it might get worse.
I’m going to all of the January dates, just to see how the show evolves. TICKETS
A BIC FOR HER – CAMDEN PEOPLE’S THEATRE – A FEMINIST FESTIVAL – OCTOBER 27th
This will be lovely, I think.
Apparently there will be some cushions in the room and as you all know, cushions are not only comfortable but hilarious too.
RADIO 4 – BRIDGET CHRISTIE MINDS THE GAP. 6.30PM
This has been repeated throughout the month every Weds at 6.30pm. You may have missed two episodes already, because I am late sending out this month’s newsletter (see above), but there is one left, which I believe is the “women in comedy” episode. It’s 4 minutes long, instead of the usual 28. Ha! Do listen.
I made Fred Macaulay, the nicest most reasonable man in comedy, tell a joke that made him feel extremely uncomfortable. See if you can spot it. LISTEN HERE.
Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been doing these columns in G2. They vary in quality.
I’m sure The Guardian will tell me when they want me to stop doing them, so I’ll
just carry on until then. READ
A BOOK FOR HER
This is the title of my book. Do you like it? I’m really enjoying not writing it. I have started it, really.
The broken toilet has been replaced. The old one has been in the garden for weeks now. Does anyone want it? We’ve used it quite a lot I’m afraid, and the previous owners used it a lot, too, I imagine.
I’ll leave it there for a bit anyway, in case any of you need it.
As we’re in the garden already, I went to get the milk in this morning (I have a milkman – not a corner shop in my garden). I carry the milk inside the house in a crate, then I put the crate on the kitchen surface next to the fridge and transfer the milk into the fridge from there. I don’t put the crate on the floor because then I will keep having to bend down to take the milk out etc etc. Then I put the empty crate back outside.
Anyway, when I went back into the kitchen a little while later, there was a slug on the kitchen top! Where the crate had just been. It must have come in on the crate. That’s the only reasonable explanation I can think of. I put it out the back.
I wonder if another slug will come in on Friday morning’s milk? I’ll let you know next month.
