A dry run...


On my to a gig in bonnie Scotland this evening, I have stopped off in Edinburgh to visit my venue for the imminent Edinburgh festival - the Voodoo Rooms Ballroom. A beautiful ballroom in a lovely old bar complex and certainly accessible and easy for people to find - being a minutes walk from the Apple store.

Today though, the room is empty and quiet and I enjoyed sitting alone with my thoughts. Quietly running my opening on the stage, you know, to get a feel and I imagine the room with punter/s and laugh/s of course...

And then my phone beeps and it's a photo text from Tom - back in London and on his way to record the Graham Norton Show - and I smile again.

Go for it Tom, I say to myself - as I will be doing in this very room in August.

Onwards...
