Today we confirmed Mark Watson for July's Mostly Comedy, who’s another act we’ve been hoping to book for ages.
The list of people to have played - or be soon to play - the club has become ridiculous. Just when I think we might not better who we’ve had for a while, another name sneaks in to make things interesting. I try hard to book people that will excite the club’s regulars when they hear about them; I work on the understanding if it’s the sort of person I’d be really interested to see, then the same will apply for other people too (a method that seems to be confirmed by how many of the dates sell out).
July’s set to be a great month for Mostly. As with last year, we’re running two consecutive shows: the 20th with Mark Watson & Bec Hill and the 21st with Richard Herring & Hattie Hayridge. It will be a nice way to lead into our annual sabbatical in August due to Edinburgh. Then, before we know it, we’ll be in October, celebrating the club’s ninth birthday; time goes by fast when you're an unintentional comedy promoter (who's prone to unintentional comedy himself).
