Tag Comedy [May. 7th, 2009|11:14 pm]
Russell Howard and Jon Richardson Fans!


[Current Location |Brighton]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Just went to see Jon live for the first time (after so many years of waiting to a) move to england and b) him coming to Brighton);.
He did a night at Brighton Komedia called 'Tag Comedy'. Which is basically 4 stand ups who do the regular comedy club on the weekend after and the guy who compere's (sp?) it starts off with talking to a member of the audience, then if any of the stand ups have material on that topic, they'll put their hand up and they're allowed on stage and do their material until someone else puts up their hand and 'tags' them to get off stage.
Jon did it for the first time ever and I didn't think he'd be the kind of person to like doing a set advertised as '4 comedians, NO running order, NO set lists, and NO idea as to what they will be doing or talking about.' Because as well know, Jon likes things tidy and prepared.

But he was brilliant. The beginning of the show was all about Brighton and generally quite positive things. The second half touched on travel and the pains that are associated with it and Jon felt right at home :)
Then someone dared to start the topic of sex and basically the rest of the show was about sex. Jon tagged Micky Flanigan who responded 'are you sure Jon? It is about sex, that does mean touching and the exchange of bodily fluids...Ok, here you go then son!'
To which Jon came on, clearly embarrassed and did his bit about how he disliked sex and talking in the bedroom.
I won't lie, but everytime he said 'you just wouldn't want to have sex with someone who talks like this' I wanted to frantically nod and say 'I would!'
But I could keep my stalkerish ways hidden, as I was sat wayyyy too close to the front.

I'm seeing him again tomorrow at the regular comedy club where he is headlining and I'm really looking forward to seeing his regular show.
Hopefully I won't be sat at the front again, because that would make me incredibly suspiscious looking.

Anyways, thought I'd share.
Love to your mothers!

Well it's part of his comedy routine, I bet he actually does like it :P
He says 'oh I've had it, I just didn't like it. Not for me all that. Because there's a lot of touching involved and when I'm being touched on one side I'd like to be touched on the opposite side for an equal amount of time with an equal amount of pressure. No woman is willing to go that length.'
And he just goes on about how he doesn't like that relationships these days start with sex and then continue into something else rather than having to court with a lady.
He just does this whole spiel about how he's not made for a girlfriend/sex.
We all know there's a long line of ladies wanting to prove him wrong though.

Ahh bless, I've heard his sex routine a few times and mentally filed the way he likes to be touched should the universe ever smile upon me and give me the chance o_0 :)

Glad you had a good time, he's so fab live!! ♥

Yeah he's amazing.
I got to see his regular routine the day after and it was so incredibly good.
But I was 100% aware of the fact Jon gets very pissed off when an audience isn't perfect, and this audience was far from perfect. I felt bad because I knew he was going to be annoyed afterwards :(
A lady in the front row started talking to him even before he'd done his first gag. She told him she listened to the radio show. I just wanted to punch her, because if she listens, surely she knows he hates that sort of thing?
I should stop being so protective toward Jon :P

God, I'd have found it hard not to slap her! How stupid can you be to interrupt a comedians flow, let alone someone like Jon? Daft audience members just ruin it for them and everyone else.

*snuggles him*
