Saturday 15th July 2017, so glad to be back at the Millenium Centre in Cardiff Bay, after a long working week, to watch my first ever live comedy show, with Jack Whitehall: At Large. Tonight will be yet another milestone for me, as it is my 300th performance of a show at the Millenium Centre. For the record, I’ve now seen 140 single shows, over 370performances of those, In all venues, since December 2012. So my 300 at the Centre reminds me just how much I enjoy watching shows and visiting one of the best theatres in the world, on a regular basis.
The theatre means so much to me at the moment, I’m trying to watch as much as I can, from as many different genres as possible. Throughout the vast quantity of shows I’ve seen, I personally have yet to see a bad one, everything has been brilliant.
On to tonight’s performance, first up a comic called Lloyd Griffiths, with a 20 minute (ish) set, very funny, getting the audience laughing from the start, a great warm up act, to get the ball rolling. For my first live comedy show I didn’t know what to expect, but I came out laughing like all of the others. Thouroughly enjoying it so far.
Jack bounds on stage to huge applause and carries on in the same mode, extremely funny throughout his act, I don’t think I stopped laughing at all. Loved everything, fabulous material and so well put over. Really impressed, so much so I think I’d like to come back to the Centre to see more of the same. We shall see.
Another brilliant Saturday comes to an end, with a new found genre to visit on later occasions, so let’s see who else is on the bill in future months.
