Comedy Festival has also coincided with Steve's busy period at work as he gets to work on his busiest client so we didn't take advantage of as much as we'd have liked to. Acts in town included Stephen K. Amos, Simon Amstell, Dave Gorman, Tom Green.
Tanya recommended and organised a trip to the Spiegeltent to see Ali McGregor's Variety Night where Ali McGregor would introduce various acts. Having never been to the tent we thought it would be a good thing to do. This was before we realised the show started at 11:30pm!
Anyway in for a penny, in for a pound and we had a relatively relaxed Saturday before a late dinner and trip to the Spiegeltent.
The spiegeltent itself is very cute with mirrors everywhere and little booths round the edge.
After the show there was a little bit of a knees up in the tent with a live band and a talented trapeze artist / hula hooper. Steve and I were the party animals and stayed behind for an hour or so before calling it a night.
So here I was thinking I was the party animal only to wake up on Sunday with a very sore throat and no voice! Oh no! My physical being, weakened by one late night was wracked with a heavy cold that I'm still getting over almost two weeks later...I spent two days off work recovering and since then have been a bit of a coughing and spluttering mess.
Afterwards I met up with Steve as well as Claire and Martyn and continued the comedy gigs with a session at the Palais with Ross Noble - a very funny man. We met up with Rachel and Tim afterwards who also had tickets to see this funny man and had a late dinner and drinks. Rachel and Tim are so happy in Melbourne which is just a pleasure to see. They moved house this weekend from their serviced apartment and I can't wait to pop round.
And that's us brought up to date. Won't be as long next time!
