Previous Show - 2nd July 2002

A full house had the rare chance to see comedy genius Omid Djalili perform his Edinburgh Festival show in the intimate atmosphere of a pub comedy club.

Omid rightly showed why his Edinburgh shows have sold out for the last seven years. My jaw muscles were hurting at the end of his hour long performance. He rightly deserved his encore.

He then discovered his car was locked inside the office car park next door. Ooppps!!! He had to catch a taxi back to London. £140. So that he could meet a Channel 4 film crew at 6am.

Support came in the form of Marcus Birdman. A great act with excellent material. However, his laid back style did throw some members of the audience (including myself), who at one stage thought he had actually forgotten his material. See him, he has some great one liners, that I have been using today.
