Quote from: itf on January 17, 2024, 03:25:30 PMI've only seen him compere once and he was brilliant - although he did have a tendency to over-run a little, gleefully ignoring the little light telling him to stop. To the point that one of the other acts tied him to a chair before his final segment.
Quote from: Tiggles on January 17, 2024, 08:47:42 PMThat was David O'Doherty a couple of years ago wasn't it? Kitson is an awesome, playful compere - a man who has always been very comfortable mucking around on stage. @lauraxsynthesis I'm sure you'll have a great time with him.

Quote from: Tiggles on January 19, 2024, 03:26:36 PMIt's a lot of fun and you should defo go if you can, just don't take a script. He clearly says this won't be a problem (I've seen it 3 times now and quite a few people didn't take a script) and you can just sit back and enjoy it all unfold.
Quote from: Tiggles on January 17, 2024, 08:44:52 PMLooks like Kitson is also doing the Collaborator show in Feb at Duke's Theatre, Lancaster and The Cockpit in London. Wonder if he'll take it to Melbourne?
Quote from: thelittlemango on February 06, 2024, 09:16:25 AMSaw the first night at The Cockpit yesterday, really enjoyed it. Was a bit nervous about the line reading thing but it turns out everyone is sat there glued to their script rather than looking at you so you feel quite anonymous, plus each person only gets a couple of lines each and it flies by and is soon on to the next person, the lines are often very trivial so there's no pressure or importance on what you say really.The actual show/script was very funny without giving too much away (also, he said it cost him £1,400 to print out all of the scripts...), definitely recommend it even if you're fearful of public speaking.
QuoteThe performances of Collaborator due to happen on 16 & 17 February have been postponed to 19 & 20 April. Here's a message from Daniel Kitson:"This is quite undignified, but I trod on the ball at football, went flying and did something to my rib/chest/side/back that makes it temporarily impossible to waddle about shouting at audiences. I'm very sorry for the faff, but it's currently quite painful to breathe deeply, let alone bellow profanities at the paying public for eighty minutes. I really hope you can come to the rearranged dates and you've been able to alter/cancel any travel/accommodation plans. Sorry again. Daniel"
