Well, opening and second night went down a storm!!
The VEGA$M showlounge is well and truly open for business so drop in if you can make it. It’s a whole different show to our Edinburgh escapade so if you saw it up there, come see us again! All those hours, weeks, months (and a whole year in the case of Brand X!) have really paid off.
Come dressed Vegas style and have a free drink on the house 😀
Press night tonight and an interview with Naked News. Don’t think I’ll be part of the interview which is fine by me as I wouldn’t have a clue where to look!!
You can now see me in my half a second, painful, bookish glory in Filament Pictures‘ ‘Figure of Speech’, filmed for the Cobra Vision competition, here (click on ‘September’ on that page if you can’t see it straight away…) Blink and you may miss me, but the whole thing’s worth a look.
If you think it’s the bees knees, then vote for it as your favourite of the month here (I’m guessing there’s not much time left on that one…)
Aaand – the London run of VEGA$M draws ever closer. Expect a full on revamp!
“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$M-ing left right and centre for the past couple of weeks. Props and costumes are still being made (and will probably be being made right up until we need to go on stage for our first preview – there are so many!) but the show is shaping up very well indeed. There has been lots of giggling! Yesterday I had possibly the biggest headrush of my life whilst painting some set. Hehe – I’m still covered in paint today! Back off to rehearsals/making stuff this afternoon/evening. Think it’s our last run through tonight before we set off on Friday. Once we’re up and running in Edinburgh I plan to post reviews, or at least links to reviews, on here, if I can nab a computer every so often. Our first performance is a week today…
…I’ve finished pencilling the first issue of Wet Shards!!
I need to run all the images past John and Vittoria of FoolishPeople next week, so there may be a few adjustments to be made before I start the inking, but right now I’m feeling in a bit of a celebratory mood 🙂
Rehearsals for VEGA$M are coming on apace. More on that soon…
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…)
