I did a gig! I did one! I performed! I remembered how! I even remembered (most of) the jokes! And the audience was loooooooovely. Of course they were, it was Bath, one of the finest places to perform live comedy (apart from where YOU live, obviously, coz you’re my favourite)
Turns out it is possible to stage live events safely right now, if you’re meticulously careful (as Nick Steel was in Bath). The event was ticketed, the tables were spaced, the walkways were masked and there was a friendly face shooting people in the head with a thermometer as they came in. Masks were worn, table service was arranged (but not during the acts) and a good time was had by all.
So now to my next two gigs. These will be very different. After the most bonkers of summers for us all, I am finally bringing back All Change, Pauline Eyre, my hour-long show about marriage, middle-age and menopause.
First and foremost, I want to reassure you that it’s funny. Menopause is ridiculous; menopause in a pandemic is hiLAIRious! It’s really funny, so funny, honestly so f***ing funny…
And there have been a couple more major changes in my life: one you know about (because you’ve been reading ALL my blogs, right??) and the other you don’t. Suffice to say, as the world has turned upside down, my family has kept me so much on my toes, my calf muscles are burning. (And let’s not even mention Couch to 5K – whose stupid idea was THAT?)
So if you’re in Brighton, or you have friends in Brighton, or if you fancy a trip to Brighton, please know that All Change, Pauline Eyre will be in Sweet Werks on October 17th & 18th at 7.20pm. Tickets here: https://sweetvenues.com/whats-on/all-change-pauline-eyre7
