I had an impromptu trip to see Andrew Maxwell at the Soho theatre on Friday. He am funny. My Irish friend, who'd never seen him before, was laughing like a maniac the whole way through.

I'm glad I'm still of an age where the actors playing teenagers on TV are predominantly older than I am.
It makes the dreams I have seem far less disturbing in the harsh light of day.

You might have enjoyed being forced to limbo by him slightly more than I did.

He was dressed as a cardinal.

Have you ever had a dream like that?

No, the clergy have never floated my boat.
I did have a dream about him once, he took me to the Jewish quarter in Eastbourne.
I don't think Eastbourne has a Jewish quarter, does it?

Mick Sergeant was fantastic. Do whatever you have to to see his show.

I very much enjoyed him last time I saw him. Is he back with Donna yet?

No. But you can find out for yourself now that you're a Londoner. He's Upstairs at the Queen's Head on Saturday and at Laughing Horse Camden on Sunday. He'll be doing 40 press ups at each show.

Two previews at the Hen and Chickens yesterday:

'The Clock Hour'
, very funny sketch comedy in a twilight zone stylie. Contained, one of the best jokes about shitting in pockets I've ever seen, it made the guy I was with cry actual tears.

'Nick Mohammed is a Character Comedian'
, self-explanatory title, funny stuff. I was sat next to Kathy Burke who seemed to greatly enjoy it.

Good fun all round.

And Emma Watson walked past me while I was outside having a fag.

Last night myself and my new London pal Fiona went to see a preview of 'Zoe Gardner's Fault' at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden.

It was very funny and clever, which was a huge relief as she's my flatmate and lying about liking it would have been awkward.

Great character comedy, with a post-modern twist - two thumbs up.

Bridget Christie: The Court of King Charles II the Second.

Really good preview, I think Bridget's brilliant. She's a fantastically likeable and quirky stage presence, and her material is imaginative and well written.

We saw her at All Hallows on the Wall, which is a converted Church and a near perfect setting, complete with candles, red wine and lots of oranges.

I *heart* the Restoration.

Saw a work in progress of Kitson's 66a Church Road : A Lament, Made of Memories and Kept in Suitcases last week. Still and bit rough round the edges, and his props don't work yet (although he did explain what they're going to do, bless 'im) but very touching and, of course, very, very funny. Definitely worth catching in Edinburgh, unless you don't like whimsical beardy stammerers.

Hey now! T'other day, I saw the poster for this and thought that it looked my kinda ting and how I would like to see it (so I'm glad to hear good things). It features Ms Christie's head on a spaniel and is just up my late 17th century alley. Watch out for the plague onions. *steps carefully*

I went to see the One Man Star Wars Trilogy on Sunday night. It was loads of fun and definitely worth seeing if you're a Star Wars fan and if you can catch it before he leaves the country! The guy has clearly done his homework. Full of energy, some great impressions and cheeky but amiable knocks at the films themselves. He's been doing this for 6 years now and became endorsed/sponsored by Lucasfilm after he'd done his first tour of the US. He won't be doing it much longer, however, as he's soon to be going on tour doing his One Man Lord of the Rings. Can't wait til he comes here with that. (He gave us a sneak preview of his Gandalf and Gollum. Hilarious!)

I have not bought any tickets for the Fringe yet. I am not sure if I should risk the rubbish ticketing system and I don't even know where to start with who to go see.

Sometimes it's worthwhile just hanging about The Pleasance and seeing what takes your fancy or picking up freebies. And there's also all the free Fringe stuff. If you have a lunchtime, go down and see Bruce Devlin at the Stand as he usually has a few acts showing a bit of their stuff.

I get to go pick up my press pass the morn and then clump around each different venue putting in my ticket requests. It would be lovely if they did them all centrally but they seem to like to make us run from piller to post.

I have the following comedy lined up:

Richard Herring
Josie Long
Storyteller's Club
Janey Godley
Stephen Grant
Justin Moorhouse
The Hamiltons (?)
Chris Cox
Miles Jupp
Fiona O'Loughlin
Ian Stone
Jim Bowen (hmm)
Scott Capurro
The Reduced Edinburgh Impro Show
John Richardson
Glenn Wool
Pappy's Fun Club
Mark Watson
Tim Minchin

Busy.
