Night Two of my Norwich Mess Around started off with the usual getting-to-know-the-audience bit, and included a lovely couple in the front row who had only been together for two weeks.
His name? Adam
Her name? Eve.
I took a photo of their ID to prove it to you, but after chatting to them in the bar afterwards thought perhaps that wasn’t the most secure thing to post online. Instead, here is a photo of Adam and Eve with a bottle of Prosecco I bought them:
Of course, the question of the night was: Is JFC gonna show up?
JFC was the fiance of an audience member in last night’s show called Nicky. JFC of course, is a nickname and it stands for Jimmy Fat C**k. Of course.
Last night we called him up on someone’s mobile, and he was very funny over the phone. In fact he lead the audience in a phoned-in singalong of 500 Miles by The Proclaimers. I offered him the chance to bring some mates and do it live tonight, and even twitter was abuzz before the show wondering if he would show. OK, there were three tweets, but they were abuzz.
Jimmy did indeed show, and dutifully brought his mates on stage for their performance. First though, they posed for the album cover.
That’s Jimmy on the right.
After a few false starts, the lads belted out 500 Miles (with the help of a backing track created by Tristan on light and sound) and I filmed the whole thing on my phone. During the interval I uploaded it to youtube, tweeted the link, and asked my followers to leave an opinion (a la X factor), and their location.
You can see the footage here:
The tweets came in from such locations as Kenya, Denmark, Florida, Edinburgh and Wollongong and included:
