This could be an interesting post for me (or very likely not), but I shall push on with it anyway. This post is basically an open offer/invitation to the @BournemouthEcho to use me, and no, not in that way (well…no, definitely no). Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my comedy, to the point of doing a spot of it myself, and when I’m not performing, I’m constantly going to gigs. Over the next 8-10 months I will be going to a number of gigs around the Dorset area (although specifically, Poole, Bournemouth and Wimborne) and would love to contribute reviews to the Echo for these gigs.
I have written a couple of reviews before, for Frankie Boyle and Dara O’Briain when they both visited Bournemouth, both of which can be viewed below. So what gigs will I be going to? Well, see for yourself:
|Jimmy Carr||13th August 2010||BIC|
|Stewart Francis||28th October 2010||Pavilion|
|Chris Addison||4th November 2010||Tivoli|
|John Bishop||9th November 2010||Pavilion|
|Sean Lock||12th November 2010||Lighthouse|
|Rich Hall||24th November 2010||Tivoli|
|Stephen K Amos||5th February 2011||Pavilion|
|Mark Watson||10th February 2011||Pavilion|
|Jason Manford||18th March 2011||BIC|
So there we are, that is the [current] list of gigs I’m already scheduled to go to.
I’m not expecting any kind of payment for this, it is, as mentioned, an open invitation to use me for being at the gigs in the first place. I will still be writing the reviews and publishing them on my blog, but if they can be used by the Echo, then that would be great, too.
Let me know.
