Happy Mondays

Went to see Richard Herring and Russell Kane at the Happy Mondays comedy club with S. last night. She's very stressed, but seemed to enjoy the evening. We finished with chips from Paul McCartney's favourite New Cross chip shop (apparently) - Sirius Fish and Chips.

I liked Herring's performance - recognised much of it from the podcast Collings and Herrin. S. preferred Kane - his white boy from outer London council estate and abusive dad material struck a chord with her. She was less impressed with Herring, and she could be right. Hering's summing up was feeble - fascism is bad - although many of his routines are very funny - not a million miles from Stewart Lee's style (if you saw the recent tv series) which is probably not too surprising.
