“Gawkagogo, one of the most distinctive – if not the most distinctive – comedy groups in the country, produce a typically over-the-top and twisted mouthpiece for their imaginative and artistic creations…”
…and what the punters are saying (good and bad!) here.
As well as doing the show and various cabaret gigs ( Robin Ince‘s Book Club, The Odditorium at Spank! and The Vaudeville Cabaret at The Bongo Club) we seem to have ended up performing in one of Arthur Smith‘s famous Edinburgh walks. This year it’s Swan Lake. Very silly and – yesterday – rather rainy, but definitely an experience for all involved – performers, punters and passers-by alike!
I’ve been VEGA$M-ing left right and centre for the past couple of weeks. Props and costumes are still being made (and will probably be being made right up until we need to go on stage for our first preview – there are so many!) but the show is shaping up very well indeed. There has been lots of giggling! Yesterday I had possibly the biggest headrush of my life whilst painting some set. Hehe – I’m still covered in paint today! Back off to rehearsals/making stuff this afternoon/evening. Think it’s our last run through tonight before we set off on Friday. Once we’re up and running in Edinburgh I plan to post reviews, or at least links to reviews, on here, if I can nab a computer every so often. Our first performance is a week today…
Currently I’m about a third of the way through the final pencilled version, so that’s 7 pages out of 22 sitting around waiting to be inked when it’s time to be inking. This picture is a section of one of the panels I’ve done so far. Not giving anything away 😉
On the VEGA$M front: my costume is almost finished and its a corker I can tell you! The pace will be picking up in the rest of this area very soon (from my end of things anyway – Brand X are already preparing things for the show at a rate of knots…)
