Has anyone seen either of Simon Munnery's efforts yet? I saw The League Against Tedium some years back and it was supreme
Apparently, the AGM comprises of members of the audience scribbling down topics for discussion, with a prize/humiliation for the audience member who comes up with the best topic. Before I go, does anyone have any suggestions for topics? I am resoundingly unfunny in these (and most other) situations.
I think he also has a play on, which is called Bucketheads or something.
League Against Tedium was very fab indeed, still one of my favourite ever shows. As well as doing the AGM and Buckethead shows, he's also doing Alan Parker as part of the line up for the Gilded Balloon's Pure Stand Up - The Golden Years, but I have no idea what nights he's doing.
Both of his shows have had five star reviews this year, I'm planning on catching the AGM at some point this week, if I've got time, and I'll probably submit something, perhaps predictably, along the lines of "Nicola is the bestest member of Girls Aloud". Why not go for something like "Girls are better than boys", or "Planes can't really fly, it's just an illusion using mirrors", or something which is much better and much funnier than that.
I finally got round to seeing this this afternoon. It was kinda a mish-mash, there were some moments of genius and some lows of desperate unfunnyness. Simon Munnery is normally fantastic, but I think that if this was someone's first introduction to his world they'd be disappointed.
Oh, I submitted the motion "Girls Aloud are the modern day Beatles. Only better.", it got a laugh, but no discussion, which was a shame as I had a whole argument planned out.
