But what a preview season it was. Not only did we head back to our spiritual home of Bromley to spread more improv love very south of the river. We also got to perform once again to a packed house – and Russ Abbott’s stuffed seagull – at the amazing Museum of Comedy. Seriously, go check this venue out. You can sit on Father Ted’s pew and stick your finger up Kenneth William’s nose. Hours of fun.
But what we forgot to write about when it happened (probably because we couldn’t quite believe it did) was that our first Ed Fringe preview was opened by the one-and-only Josie Long, who just popped along to try a few things out. Like you do.
What’s great is that this all came about because of social media. In particular the wizard that is Twitter. She tweeted. We tweeted back. The rest is comedy history.
And that leads us very neatly on to the right here and now.
In a matter of days, we’ll be heading up to the Burgh to sell the shizzle out of our social media show: All Made Up: This Time It’s Social (in The Snifter Room at The Mash House, thanks for asking).
Mr talent himself, Stephen Alan Yorke, has been designing everything we could ever need to hand out, post up or stick on, in his brilliantly unique style. And then on 6th August, we’ll be opening our show to the public. And, quite frankly, we can’t wait.
We can’t get enough of this social media shizzle.
See you soon.
