It made for an anti-climactic end to my Brighton run to finish with a 'no-show' today.
Well, technically it was a 'two-show', in the sense that two people turned up to see it (one of whom was a friend), but I wasn't going to put the three of us through such a tense experience. No-one wants to be one side of a comic-punter-punter triangle; it's a lose-lose-lose situation, whichever way you look at it.
Most frustratingly of all, we managed to fix our ongoing sound issues, so if we'd gone ahead there was a good chance that everything would have worked. I guess that's just the way it goes, though I'd sooner it didn't. I'd also set out to record tonight's show for reference, so it was a shame to have to abandon that too.
Instead, we made the best of a dissapointing situation by having a quick drink, watching Matt Green's show and then catching the train back to Hertfordshire. Watching the show made for some much needed light relief after such a frustrating end to the day. It's worth going to see; Matt's grasp and attention to detail when using a Keynote presentation was a joy to see; it's used very slickly and creatively, plus the central point of it - an advert Green featured in with Harvey Keitel, along with everything about it -was very amusing. I'm sure once he's settled into a slightly more it will be really very good. WATCH THIS SPACE.
