Really? A majority of the venues contacted us, hmmm.

can you elaborate in a pm?

Brett, you know the age of consent in most of Europe is 16. The old law (still in effect) is if your head reaches above the bar, you can get served. Be prepared for the drunken Brett tour.
Message: Posted by: Kondini (Sep 2, 2008 01:22PM)
Will elaborate here,,, they are mainly classed as underground or alternative,,I enjoy these cos they are a challenge,,,,sideshow will do well here provideing its tongue in cheek.
The Arno in Bristol is completly opposite cater for the graduate types,,,theatre venue,,,more up market and normal !!!

Many of them are Pub Venues (Yep I like these as well) My fav is the Hen & Chicken (Islington) Give em a bell,,,they would go for this. But as with all Pub venues,,hit em hard, take no prisoners and they will respond big time.

In the US there are few to compare,,, the Comedy Store,,,here (When in Dean Street) Served no food,,,,only booze,,,the equiv in the US would have patrons far more responsive,,,OTT in fact,,,here your gonna have to work hard but if you beat em then you will get the resonse big time.

For ideas on crowd / rabble / drunk control ,,,,see Sadovitch or Chubby Brown cos its their kind of patch.

NB,,,, not all your booked venues fall into the above catagory,,,,some will be pups,,,,,that`s for you to find out ,,,hahahs,,,,

No worries your gonna have a blast.
Best of luck (Will try and get to a couple cos there pretty near to me).

Haa, yeah, I know, I'll be able to hang with the grown-ups. But I am as boring as one can possibly be.

Completely sober and drug free.
Afraid of roller costers
Terrified of pain (weird right?)
I tend to only eat food of a beige color
I stay in my house
etc, etc...

Brett, sorry I missed this thread, and sorry I can't help you set up any gigs.

But if the whole thing is not yet nailed down shut, you should start the German tour in Berlin and END it in Hamburg: the Hamburger Dom begins its winter season on 7 November. It's a sight to see. Truly. It's like Germany's Coney Island or something.

Coney Island. *sigh*

Wow! I thought my other kids made good!!!

Brett: Remember THAT Engilsh class? Now you'll find out how little it really mattered 'cause whatever the hell it is they speak over there in the UK, it AIN'T English!

Have much fun and learn to hide behind large males and duck under big women.

In Sweden you're going to find out where all the GORGEOUS genes now in America came from.

Congrats, Brett.

Eating food of a primarily beige color will suit you well at least until you hit mainland Europe. ;)

I hope that this tour is more to your liking than your first time out of the gate.

Handa, this tour will be much different!

I've been on month long tours with these guys in the states and they have been wonderful, Europe I assume will be even better.
Message: Posted by: dave_matkin (Sep 14, 2008 02:37AM)
Of course it will especialy the UK part! Much better than the USA! :bg:
Message: Posted by: stoneunhinged (Sep 14, 2008 02:48AM)
Right.

Because in the UK ALL the food is beige.

(Unless it's Indian.)
Message: Posted by: dave_matkin (Sep 14, 2008 02:23PM)
Then its anything BUT beige!
Message: Posted by: Harley Newman (Sep 14, 2008 02:30PM)
UK? Food? Isn't that a contradiction of terms?

Gottingen has great beer. Go there!
Message: Posted by: handa (Sep 14, 2008 11:16PM)
Many curry dishes are beige, too.

Newcastle is brown, but it is close to beige.

I happen to like both very much.

Stop knocking our nosh,,,,,at least in the UK we serve proper helpings,,,in the US I guess they are made to fit the mouths !!!!

Beige,,,,so what,,,it all ends up that colour anyway!!! Cmon think about it !!
Message: Posted by: Harley Newman (Sep 16, 2008 02:31PM)
Proper helpings? Is that because you use a napkin, and eat with a knife and fork?

I had to do some sword-swallowing once, following an Indian buffet lunch. The spices combined to a most unpleasant taste sensation. It might have been beige.

That was just the bile

I had the pleasure of going for a definitely non-beige Indian meal with Brett in London last week...

I was (predictably) late for the show, so as the lift (elevator!) doors opened to the venue in Foyles bookshop in central London, I heard the rasp and squeak of a Qualatex being swallowed. Although I only managed to catch the last stunt of the act, it was obvious that Brett had the audience in the palm of his hand - suited businessmen shaking their heads in disbelief and trendy young girls peeping through clasped fingers - great stuff! The deafening applause at the end of the act made me extra p*ssed off that I'd missed most of it!

The only warning I'd give is that if you go for a meal with Brett, he IS likely to swallow the cutlery for the entertainment of the (admittedly rather confused) waiters. Amazingly, we didn't even get so much as a free papadum.

I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the next UK tour!
