So after realising that Craig at work went to see Bad Musical, I invited him to LQC, and he seemed quite keen. We met up with Rob at the main bar of The Phoenix, soon to be joined by Neal. We got downstairs and found we had a lovely table thanks to Muki, and awaited the show.

I’ve spoken about LQC on a number of blogs, but tonight, even though, by their own admission, they were under-rehearsed, they pulled a blinder. One of the regular Cvnts, Dan Mersh was unavailable due to some actual paid work, so AIOTM’s Dan Tetsell stepped in at (almost literally) the last minute, though you wouldn’t have noticed. He looked like he was part of the team from day one.
The toddlers were back, as was the erotic poet Sean Goldsworthy, and of course the O’Flaherty Brothers (and Billy Sunday) who we have missed the last few shows. A highlight for me was the Daniel O’Donnell interview, played by Michael Legge and I do hope that he comes back when the Cvnts return in the Autumn.
I spoke to Paul after the show and it looks like The Trap have quite a show lined up for the Camden Fringe. You heard it here first. I’ll be booking my tickets as soon as I can.
MushyBees was up next. He is the guy who plays Pam Ayers in the Precious Little podcast and has quite a unique act, combining his caricatures with bizarre short poetry. I was rather disappointed he didn’t “tranny up” for the evening, but hey, you can’t have everything.
|FIVE FUCKING QUID!!?!?|
Yet again, Richard Herring was on, making his second appearance at LQC. He started with some Christ On A Bike material which he had incorporated into the show after receiving some rather odd email from Christians who thought the show was blasphemous. He moved into some new material from his next show “What Is Love Anyway”. I’ve seen him do a few of these before in the last couple of weeks, but whether it was the tiredness kicking in, or perhaps he just wanted to start getting things word perfect, with the correct delivery, he used a lot of notes tonight. Having said that, he was his usual high standard, and slightly scared Craig by asking him a question about eggs.
After the gig, Rob, Craig and I went to Village Soho to meet our friend Richard where I ended up paying £5 for a rather regular bottle of cider. I know drinks are getting expensive, but five fucking quid??? DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR EVER!
Glad I got that off my chest.
So farewell Cvnts. Don’t forget about us while you’re away, and come back in the Autumn bigger, stronger, and more shambolic than ever!
