BEST OF BUG AND CRUISE NEWS!
UPCOMING BEST OF BUG SHOW NEWS!
Hey ha! What is up? I just got back from 5 sold out nights of BUGging at the Edinburgh Festival! Thanks to all of you who came and those of you who said hi after the show. Nice to meet you. The only slightly awkward moment was when a very nice lady tried to pat my leg while we were having a photo taken but accidentally patted my joolies because she forgot how short I am. At least I think it was an accident. Hey, there’s worse accidents, right?
For those of you who may not know, BUG is a show I host every couple of months at the BFI Southbank featuring a selection of top notch recently produced music videos as well as a few of my own contributions in the form of songs, ludicrous videos and the reading of You Tube comments. The Edinburgh shows (like most of the one off shows we do outside the BFI) consisted of some of my favourite videos from the last few BFI BUGs and more of my own bits than we’d normally have at a regular show.
If you haven’t been able to catch our recent Best Of BUG shows in Edinburgh and Bristol then there are more opportunities for you to do so coming up.
QUEEN ELIZABETH HALL, 4th September
This weekend I’ll be at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank Centre on Sunday 4th September at 7.30pm as part of the Vision Sound Music Festival, the UK’s first festival of Music for Visuals. You can book tickets here.
KING’S PLACE FESTIVAL, 9th September
Then I’m doing a shorter version of the Best Of show at the King’s Place Festival on Friday 9th September at 8.30pm. If over 90 minutes of BUG seems a little excessive, (though why anyone would think that is beyond me) then maybe this is the show for you, plus it’s cheaper too! Book tickets here
GREENWICH COMEDY FESTIVAL, 10th September
Then we’re back with the full Best Of BUG show at the Greenwich Festival on Saturday 10th September at 3pm. Get yo tickles here
Can’t wait to see you.
RACIST VIDEO NEWS!
Here’s a video that relies heavily on outdated national stereotypes. I’ve road tested it on living mates from Australia and so far, no beat ups, but it is most certainly retrograde, reductive and cheap so I might steer clear of my local Walkabout for a little while.
Did I mention that I’m very fond of you?
