Anyone catch either of the first two shows? Any good? We're watching tonight but may have to just lock the toddler in his room (or drug him and go and watch at the local tapas restaurant) to be watching for the 8pm start time .

I'm watching, but it's 2:30 in the afternoon here and I'm still supposed to be working, so I'm not sure how conducive this will be to Mr Kitson's fine brand of comedy.

I do like Hebden Bridge, as well. Extremely dull Hebden Bridge anecdote - I went to a B&B there, and was let in by the bloke who played the vet on Emmerdale (his sister ran the place).

It's lovely so far! And he's not even started yet!

That was so great. Thoughts some aspects worked better then others (obviously). I switched off a bit for the stuff about thousands of post-it notes covering his house and causing 2 foot drifts and him taking days to sort through and organise and read them all and was disappointed that the SOCP bit became too obviously a fictional narrative device but it seems mean to point that out when the vast vast majority of the show caused us so much joy. I sometimes wish he'd allow the mainstream in, I imagine the finished show would be so great on BBC4 on NYE.

Just watched the first Edinburgh show and thought it was a thoroughly enjoyable 90 mins nonetheless. He did his standard self-deprecation about it being thrown together and not ready, but of course it was very good and seemed finished. He promised to send out a link in a few months to a more complete version.

What does SOCP mean? Google suggests second order cone programming, or something about sexual offenders, neither of which were in the show I just watched.

I think it's "sound of children playing".

Presumably these shows will be cancelled after Thursday, right? I've got tickets for one of his Brighton shows next week, but I've heard nothing about it.

There’s nobody in the audience and you’re allowed to travel for work, so I think they’ll go ahead.

What a tit! I thought these were online so I waited for payday to buy my ticket and only to go on the site and see they'd sold out. So are these actual gigs? Man!

They're actual gigs , though the audience is watching online and they're only selling the number of tickets equivalent to the venue's capacity.

That's fucking stupid unless there's a technical reason for it.

There are tons of tickets left for much of the tour and I guess it'll get better as he goes along. It was certainly pretty cobbled together on the last night in Hebden Bridge. I think the idea is to choose a performance local to you so as to support the venue but we're just going to choose a night where we can get a takeaway and try and put the little one to bed early.

I had a search and this Saturday 2pm in Manchester is the only one with tickets. Although i got frustrated after searching through a week of gigs.

I’ve just had an email from Home in Manchester who say it’s definitely going ahead.

Wow, they went quickly. I'm sure there were loads yesterday.

Yes, was just posting that it was Liverpool not Manchester. I managed to get one for 2pm. It's still on sale there so get 'em whilst you can.

The exclusivity adds value, doesn't it?
It also means he can help out the individual theatres rather than have everyone watch a single show.

All sold out now. As someone's mentioned above, he's said he will release it at some point so fingers crossed he actually will.

If anyone here can’t ‘make it’ one night I can swap you my ticket for the final night as I’m going to be busy then. Email me col@colsimpson.com

I'm meant to watch this tonight, I'm sure, but I can't find any evidence of my ticket anywhere. I can see that I paid a tenner to "Associated Theatres" on the 14th September but that's it. Sold out too. Piss.

HOPE IT'S NOT VERY GOOD.


and my ticket just came through. Hope it is very good.

I have just finished his Trifle set of radio shows and it was fucking amazing. It is really frustrating that there is no way I can convince any of my uninitiated friends about its brilliance though as no description would do it justice
