Get A Move OnThursday, August 18, 2011
Last night I went to the Amnesty International 'Stand Up For Freedom' and I have to say, as expected, it was one of the funniest nights of the year so far. There was a fantastic line-up, including David O'Doherty, Mark Watson, Russell Kane and Michael Winslow, all of whom were absolutely hilarious. I think the night was totally stolen by the poor woman who had to do Sign Language for Michael Winslow's act though, she was so professional, but so hilarious. I've honestly never seen anything so amusing.
I think I'm really lucky when it comes to seeing shows during the festival, I rarely go to lots, but what I do are always amazing. Last year I went to a different comedy gala that was being televised and somehow ended up in the front row. It was brilliantly funny. It also means whenever it is re-shown on BBC3 or Dave my Facebook wall suddenly fills with people wanting to check they aren't going crazy. My one moment of fame.
In typical Scottish fashion the weather has been pretty disappointing recently, I took these a couple of days ago and ended up having to run home because it started pissing it down. Luckily of the 20 photos I managed to take there were some okay ones. I don't know what I am going to do when it gets to winter, or even autumn, I am going to have to find some places with shelter, and good lighting, possibly an impossible task.
