Computers suck and never work when you want them to, this is a fact which is as solid and set in stone as "The Earth orbits the sun" and "Never buy a car stereo from a member of Blazin' Squad", so Howard Read deserves a great deal of credit for perservering with Little Howard. This years show, apparantly, involves 7 computers, which didn't always work when he wanted them to.
Little Howard is the world's first interactive, animated, six-year old stand-up comedian and appears, for the most part, on a screen chatting to Big Howard and, on occasion, the audience, which is all very impressive and interesting, but is it actually funny? Yes! Thankfully, otherwise it would have been a bit of a waste of my pennies, after the initial 'show off' part with Howard in his My Little Jongleurs comedy club, you quickly forget that Little Howard is anything other than a real cartoon boy, at least until the equipment cocked up a bit, but this was a preview show, so it should probably be sorted out by now. Go see, go see, I reckon this'll be up for the Perrier this year as well.
I asked Mr Lowculture nicely for this board, but I did point out that I'd probably be the only person posting here so he'd be well within his rights to not bother with it, but I'm very glad he has. I hope it doesn't end up just being a 'me' zone, though.
I hope people are actually interested in reading my half-arsed reviews, as long as at least one person reads 'em, I'll be happy, though I feel that this year I will be more restrained in terms of shows. Last year I saw 35, this year I've only seen 9 so far and I feel that monetary reasons are going to force me to be a little bit restrained, but if anyone wants to pay for me to see a show, then I'll be more than happy to accept your charity. Not that I'm desperate or owt, honestly.
