After a long and inexcusable hiatus we return to talk to you about the morality of Transformers, Skyrim, FIFA 12 and 80s cartoon theme tunes.
If you’re in or around the ancient city of Londinium, you might like to know that I co-run an excellent monthly gig there called Glitter & Doom. It’s an experimental night where comedians perform their jokes and stories to a live musical score, written and performed by Sam Astley & Charlie Pyne.
The next gig is tomorrow night (Wednesday 2nd February) and features the awesome Nick Sun, the surreal Gerry Howell and the wonderful Julia Clark. If you’re free, you should come along. Here are the details:
GLITTER & DOOM #5
Wednesday 2nd Feb, 8pm
@ Betsey Trotwood,
56 Farringdon Road,
London EC1R 3BL
Tickets are £5 via WeGotTickets.
If you’re not in London, then coming along to the night would be a massive pain in the arse, so lucky-for-you our good friend Steve Cross (who runs the excellent Bright Club), records the gigs so that we can turn them into podcasts.
At least 8 weeks after everyone else has done their “best of 2010” shows, Jim & Kent turn up to the party fashionably late with a list, a microphone and an hour.
If you like us, half as much as we love you, then you’ll probably have a lovely time listening to the show.
Recorded in the midst of a snowy-ridden, tube-strike-afflicted London with a hearty bunch of excellent individuals, this recording features Simon Munnery, Naz Osmanoglu, Julia Clark & myself all on jokes; Sam Astley on guitar & Charlie Pyne on double bass.
