Hey, I was just wondering, after seeing Marcus Brigstocke on Jack Dee Live at the Apollo whether or not there is a DVD that includes all of the performances from that show. I'd LOVE to watch Marcus on it again as he was so funny, but I don't even think he has a DVD or anything...so does anyone know whether the whole series is available to buy or if Marcus will be bringing out a DVD of his own any time soon? Thanks!

P.S - I think Omid Djalili should most definitely be added to the list of interests for this community.

Hi, first of all apologies for any cross-posting that may occur.

By way of an introduction my name is Sean Boon. A hampshire based entertainer.
The entertainment I provide is what I like to term 'mind magic', some people call it mindreading others psychological illusions.Mixed with some gambling scams and sideshow stunts including fire breathing and regurgitation.

I make no claims to be psychic, I use existing scientific principles, psychology, magic, suggestion and showmanship to achieve the illusion of sixth sense abilities.

Previous clients that have hired me to display my talents either in public or private functions include, BMW, Marks & Spencer, Southampton University,Permabond among many others.

Other interests include supporting the live music scene, local history, the gothic culture and it's sub-genres.

I'm anticipating a warm welcome and look forward to updating you all on forthcoming events.
If you are interested in booking me, then please take a look at my website for more information and do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks Sean Boon

Dylan Moran Aberdeen tickets [Jun. 12th, 2006|12:12 pm]
I have three spare tickets to sell, for the Dylan Moran show at the Aberdeen Music Hall on Thursday night. The tickets aren't seated together, just singles. Two in the balcony, one in the stalls. They'll be £20 each, either a cheque sent in the post or cash in person. Any takers?

As promised, full details [Jan. 24th, 2006|10:15 pm]


In early November last year Andrew Maxwell and The Comedy Store opened the doors for the first time on a Thursday night at 11.55pm for something new and crazy and exciting. The UK's very first Thursday night late show! Over the 5 weeks a few of the comics to grace the stage were Jimmy Carr, Dara O’Briain, Ed Byrne, Noel Fielding, Mick Miller, Topping & Butch, Steve Hughes, Phil Nichol, Paul Thorne, Carey Marx and Matt Kirshen and of course not forgetting the ‘Full Moon Break Dancers’ Ude and Kian

Pick of the week in Time Out, The Times and Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Guardian and Metro and also being the talk of the town with the Comedy Circuit.

Don Ward who own and has run The Comedy Store since 1978 said of the show.....
“Andrew Maxwell’s Full Mooners take me back to the early days of the Store, when it was in Dean Street; there was this anarchic and rebellious feel from both artists and audiences. The show has a kind of interaction that rarely happens these days and an outrageousness that I and everyone enjoyed and which got everyone’s bowels moving! It was like going back to the era of Alexi Sayle and Keith Allen whose comedy and observations were ‘edgy’ and nasty but actually reflected everyday life”.

This is a limited run and we suggest you book tickets and the next day off (advisable) now so you do not miss out on this electrifying and life changing experience! Eddie Izzard, Matt Lucas, Catherine Tate, Simon Pegg, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr, The Cuban Brothers, Daniel Kitson, Robin Williams and Jerry Seinfeld will all be asked if they want to appear on this fantastic late night show full of midnight mayhem.

Dates February 2,9,16,March 2, 9, 16, 23
Doors 11.00 11:55 start
Prices £10/8
Bar offers available till three

OK, so I have 2 tickets to see the legend that is Ross Noble in Birmingham on the 30th of this month...

HOWEVER, I also have tickets to see the Subways in my home town of Lincoln on the same night...

Due to my seeing of Mr Noble in Warwick Arts centre, I sadly have to try and sell these tickets. Or switch them for 2 saturday night ones...

Would anybody be interested in purchasing them/switching them?

I'll let them go for face value (£17.25 inc fees), and for that I'll throw in postage to wherever you are... If you're AT ALL interested, please comment below with your email address (Comments will be screened for privacy), and I shall email you with my details for payment/swapping tickets...

Ta for reading, and if you can help out it would be muchos appreciated.

Keeping it vaguely Imaginary

Hi folks!

Two in one week! Unheard of!

Just a PS to say you may want to check out http://www.everythingsoundslikecoldplaynow.com. I think you can guess what awaits you there.

Hope you enjoy it considerably more than I enjoyed making it (well the bit on the beach anyway, the rest was a doddle).
