Russell Howard and Jon Richardson Fans!
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!
