My Dad calls to say I got a good review in The Independent. I consider buying it but don’t. Jon Ronson made a brilliant film a few years ago about a comedy critic who takes his one man show (which is about being a comedy critic) to the festival. His show is wretchedly bad but he somehow secures a four star review. Far from being grateful for the insane generosity, he is seen fuming and ranting that they’ve withheld the fifth star! Once you start reading reviews you cannot win. I think the audience tells you everything you need to know. Are you making a note of all this? I’ve been in the game 9 months so I know what I’m talking about.
