Wednesday 10th October 2018, a rare midweek day off so, as usual I’m down at Cardiff Bay on a really hot autumn day. Today I’m at the Millennium Centre to meet the new members of the development team for a chance to air a few ideas etc, then I have an opportunity to watch Rob Brydon with his ‘I am Standing Up’ tour. Really good day so far, one of my best midweek days for a long while. I rarely get to watch comedy, so it’s nice to be able to broaden my theatrical horizons, with the hope of the watching different forms of entertainment on the big stage.
After the events of the day I realise just how much this theatre means to me and how it has totally changed me whole way of life. Watching all these wonderful shows, in these magnificent surroundings, with so many people I can call my friends, has been a revelation.
Time to talk about tonight’s show, first off was Andrew Bird with a 20 minute slot, very funny and no obscene language, which is nice to see, for a change. A nice warm up for the main event.
Rob Brydon was absolutely brilliant, laughed all night, great jokes along with his impressions especially Ken Bruce, classic. Really good singing voice, well he is Welsh, wouldn’t expect anything else. Fabulous night entertainment, with both artists never going down the smutty line of comedy, for a change. Feel the need to watch more comedy shows after tonight.
Amazing day today, really glad I took the day off.
