Sorry the last post was sort of long.. and rambling. I hadn't blogged in a week and I think I got a big over excited (you should see the stuff I deleted to bring it down to what it was) Anyway, tonight I'm tired and lacking motivation, so it shouldn't be so bad.
Anyway, some highlights from the shows themselves:
Poor Jeff. The audience wasn't in it that night. He kept asking us questions, and getting nothing back. But he was asking us about boating, and gardening, so what were we to do?
At the very end of the show, he started telling us about a show he'd done recently. He mentioned the name of the town "Guildford", and got his first heckle of the night. "Guildford's shit!" called out somebody from the other side of the room. That was funny to me not only because one of the only two Australian serial killers to receive life imprisonment, Ivan Milat, was born in Guildford, but also because I know somebody from there.
Jeff just reacted by going "I'm sorry, is there somebody out there? The first time I get anything from you all night and it's five minutes before the end. Did you just walk in here tonight thinking "I hope he mentions Guildford so I can tell him it's shit" Perhaps that's how I should have started the show. "Hello ladies and gentlemen.. Guildford!"
Anyone who has seen Black Books will know that Dylan Moran can go on an angry rant with the best of them. And he did that many times through his show.
The part of his show I'm going to share with you, I have chosen because it really spoke to me.. and reaffirmed my lifestyle choice.
"We have to make a lot of decisions in our life and we have to make them from a very young age. One of the most important decisions that we have to make when we're young is whether we're going to seek out a parter or choose to go it alone- which is basically a choice between being sane or not lonely"
Adam did a show where he incorporated his make believe son into the show. He talked about how, as a stand up comedian he once felt he wouldn't have much to offer as a father. Then he realised he had learnt a lot of important lessons through his work and the travel he has been able to do and the people he has been able to meet.
I'm going to leave you with the same message he delivered to his son as he was finishing up the show.
"In life, you can either be an inflater or a deflater. And you can tell when you've inflated someone, because they go like this *puffs chest out and smiles* And you can tell when you've deflated someone, because they go like this *slumps shoulders and frowns*
And I think, perhaps, that if you can go through life and inflate as many people as possible, maybe when you're gone, that will be the indication of your lifes worth"
"Wow dad, did you ever tell and audience that?"
"No, I wouldn't have the guts. That's why I invented you"
