ONLY A WEEK TILL EDINBURGH! HURRAY!!!
YES! IT'S UNBELIEVABLE! AND THAT'S OFFICIAL! There is only a week to go now till Gary's hour-long show Polaroid Suitcase opens at the Edinburgh Fringe, and of course, we are going to be there THE WHOLE TIME!! YAAAYY!! We still don't know where we are going to be staying, but I'm sure we will be able to find a cheap hotel somewhere. We're going to go and see Gary EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, and he's on for 23 nights, as well as being on at loads of other events all around Edinburgh, so we're probably going to see him approximately a MILLION TIMES.
SO MUCH has happened since we last bothered to update the site that it's difficult to know where to begin! Gary has been doing his Edinburgh previews all around London and we have been to EVERY SINGLE ONE. We've unfortunately been very rubbish at writing reviews of them, but HURRAH! We have written a review of his last London show at the stylish Albany on Great Portland Street, where you can read a tantalising glimpse of what he is going to be doing in Edinburgh virtually EVERY SINGLE DAY for NEARLY A MONTH!! We just can't wait. It's going to be THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF MAN (or woman) KIND!! IT'S SO INCREDIBLE WE FEEL LIKE PUNCHING SOMETHING!!!!
Also, what is EVEN MORE AMAZING (and what could be more amazing than seeing Gary perform every single night for a month?) we have an ADVANCE COPY of Gary's new CD, his first proper album, Polaroid Suitcase. And the word on the streets is, it's HOT. It's REALLY HOT. Eight tracks of the purest, most mind-blowing music YOU WILL EVER HEAR IN YOUR LIFE. We shit you not!! To read the first ever review of this AMAZING AND GROUNDBREAKING album, click here!!!
What's EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE AND AMAZING is that we have been spending quite a lot of time hanging around outside Gary's flat in Walthamstow, just to give him a bit of support. We found out where he lives from his manager, who was very kind and bought us some cider to drink while we sat on the wall and waited for him to come out. We were a bit wary at first when we found out that it wasn't just us, but Gary also had OTHER FANS called Leslie and Monica who had been sitting outside Gary's flat for a few weeks already. We didn't like them at all at first because they called us slags, but we got our own back when we emptied their bags in the middle of the road, and since then we have become the best of friends. We're a bit of a gang now and call ourselves THE FOUR WHORES OF THE APOCALYPSE (I am War, Michelle is Famine, Monica is Pestilence and Leslie is Death). We've seen Gary a couple of times but he's not at home a lot any more so mainly we just see Gary's neighbours. Some of them are quite rude but there's a nice man called Dave who sometimes lets us sleep on his floor when it gets too cold outside. Not that it's been cold though lately--PHEW! IT'S BEEN A SCORCHER!!!
What else is there to say? Oh, I don't know. But we probably won't have time to do any more on the site till after Edinburgh now, because we're going to be so busy SEEING GARY!! Are you jealous? Well, if you are, then don't be, because all you have to do is go to THE CAPITAL OF SCOTLAND and watch him EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, just like us. And if you can't make it to Edinburgh, then you might be able to catch up with what's happening to Gary by going to Comedy Lounge and looking for a feature they're doing called "Edinburgh or Burst". I think they're going to be following him around or something, asking him questions. THAT SHOULD BE OUR JOB!! Oh well, maybe next year…
Well, if we don't see you before then, we'll see you after.
