We went out to the Bulls Head last night with our friends Bob, Susan, Hannah and Allan - they regularly host stand up comedy nights so we thought we would give it a go. We had dinner first in the bar then headed upstairs to hear the performers. There were three acts - Mark Billingham who hosted the evening and was absolutely hilarious!!, Sugar Sammy who was mildly amusing and Paul Thorne who was also absolutely hilarious!!. It was interesting to see how their comedy went down with the international crowd and I have to admit I cringed a couple of times when Sugar Sammy was doing his bit but the other two went down a storm!! (I can't remember what on earth they talked about but we all laughed a hell of a lot). We went through a vast quantity of wine, Chris and I won a nights stay in a posh hotel in Bangkok (we're doing quite well for getting free hotel accommodation) and, when the comedy was over, we then headed over to Bob and Susan's apartment for a night cap. I have no idea what time we went to bed but laughed my head off today when Bob and Susan walked into the Dubliner about 10 minutes after we did for the fry up!!
