You can see how much I enjoyed doing this gig, last Monday. What a room. twitter.com/pushgilbey/sta…
Spent the day tracking a silly Nikki Minaj joke I made as it travelled round the world, but particularly enjoying three separate, angry men who didn’t get it and refuse to back down.
Glad to see Man City are using the “Blockbusters” font on their shirts. Game recognising Game. Respect to that.
Very sad to hear about the death of Norm MacDonald. Maybe not well known enough on this side of the Atlantic, he was a master of stand-up; and widely regarded the best guest you could have on a chat-show. Check out this brilliant joke: twitter.com/adamsteinbaugh…
Gutted. Was supposed to be attending a wedding in Trinidad, but it’s just been cancelled. Family won’t say why.
Madness of course. But for a good cause. And he has about 5 Universities using him for sleep deprivation studies while goes… twitter.com/tabzahs/status…
Woke up to London under pouring rain and I’m just relieved we did this LAST night, rather than tonight... twitter.com/daraobriain/st…
Huge thanks to @The_Globe for letting us comedians on their beautiful stage tonight. Turns out, it’s a perfect room for stand-up. Well done William!
If you happen to be passing on the Southbank tonight… twitter.com/ninaconti/stat…
And while we’re in the mood for heart-warming sports stories, this is delightful… twitter.com/nedboulting/st…
Watched this crazy sports movie last night, where a schoolgirl from Bromley entered the US Open and then, listen to this for terrible screenwriting, just won every single set straight through including the final. Oh come on! Good cameo from Larry David though.
Well, I think the rest of the qualifiers should be taking a long look at themselves tonight.
Oh, it’s Mike McNulty! Ssshh! I love this guy’s stuff.
Well that is both brilliant and ludicrously unbelievable. Well done Emma Raducanu.
Well done Tyrone. Defended brilliantly, took their chances when they got them. People already muttering about curses in this pub in London; Mayo just had too many wides. Nothing supernatural about it. #gaa
Jesus, if Mayo lose after 70 years and 11 finals, and yer wan Raducanu walks away with the US Open at the first attempt… Jesus, she’ll never get a pint in Castlebar again.
For the sake of my poor mother, Hon Mayo. #HonMayo
My my. @Astronomer_Mark of @BBCStargazing is doing the world’s longest lecture, starting tomorrow! Proceeds go to @barnardos all details here. twitter.com/gwrlecture/sta…
I’ll be working really hard at this gig, to make it extra funny, since the rest of the line-up are such total no-marks. You should come along. twitter.com/livenationuk/s…
And yes, I do have a new show I’m supposed to be writing; why do you ask?
I also set up a different telescope for take a picture of Jupiter, and that took about 4 hours to set-up because I put the scope on the mount upside down, so the alignments kept going wrong and it took me two hours to notice what I’d done. This bloody hobby.
Would love to have more detail on andromeda but after all the hours spent setting up I only got 80 minutes before it hit the meridian. Jesus the amount of ways this hobby can go wrong…
Tech bit: These were taken with a Altair 269c camera attached to a Williams Redcat scope with an L-pro filter. And APP and Photoshop for processing. First time using the Redcat. What a lovely thing it is…
Finally got the telescope out after a summer of crutches and clouds; had forgotten the sheer amount of rigmarole, but after 3 hours of set-up, finally got to taking pictures again. Andromeda and the Heart Nebula here.
(Side note: once you discovered meme-maker, it’s hard to stop.)
I should have been more sympathetic. Dealing with the ‘lonlinss’ is a huge problem when you’re being chased by the New Zealand Paparazzi.
Maybe that tight g-string is giving here the lonlinss.
Busy day for the pornbots, it appears. Sadly I have no cure for the “lonlinss”.
Sadly, @GlenINECArena I’ll actually be doing my show “So… Where Were We?”, but I like your title too. Touring can be a blur. twitter.com/gleninecarena/…
Just a reminder that this crazy machinery is cranking up again; starting in Dublin. Partly because I cannot wait to be back onstage, but also because I just cannot get the Only Fans thing to work profitably with all these restrictions. My people need nudes! twitter.com/aikenpromotion…
Today I shall be mainly singing “I predict a Riot” by the Kaiser Chiefs, but with the lyrics replaced by “Hairy MacLary of Donaldson’s Dairy”. No questions, please.
Ah, meant to post this before 10. Also, there will be many other gigs, in many other places…. This is the start of it, though…. twitter.com/aikenpromotion…
An rud is annamh is íontach! Well Wicklow on their All-Ireland today! twitter.com/sportsdes/stat…
And, because people have started replying with “Are you coming to…?”, yes, of course I am. Further Irish dates to be announced, then the Uk staring across 2022, then Europe and the world in 2023. So, yes, I will also be going to Cork. twitter.com/aikenpromotion…
Although I am aware that image makes it appear that I will simply stand on stage, staring at you all and silently judging you.
Finally! We can announce these tour gigs! Nature is healing etc etc twitter.com/aikenpromotion…
Farewell then, Edinburgh festival! Thank you for giving me the chance to tell The Long Story, it was a privilege to have such lovely test crowds. Hopefully will see you for a real, full festival next year!
And this… I have no idea what mood this guy was trying to convey.
Lee Mack hasn’t changed much, except here with respectful graffiti added.
One of the joys of being back in Edinburgh: the dressing room of the legendary Pleasance Cabaret Bar, still decorated with posters from 1999. Noel Fielding looking like an infant here:

There will be lots of this, I know, but sorry to see @VilleneuveWines shut its doors in Edinburgh today, post-COVID; after 27 years of trading. Still online/in Peebles, but a lovely, friendly, informed, independent wine/whiskey shop, now gone.
Is Adam Clayton going to sue the rest of U2 for getting his lad out on the cover of Achtung Baby?
Hearing this a lot! Thanks everybody for your answers. Funnily enough, it might be a Greenock thing. Certainly doesn’t appear to be Irish. twitter.com/micksa_7/statu…
Irish people: does anyone know the phrase “The Devil never licked it” (as in, plucking dropped food off the ground, it’s still good, the devil never licked it). A Scottish friend is trying to establish if it is Irish or Scottish.
Trying out a very long, complicated, personal story at some small gigs in Edinburgh this week. Tonight people were generally very nice but kudos to the guy at the loos who said “Good show”. “Did you like the long story?” I said. Long pause. “It’s a work in progress,” HE replied.
Lovely to be back in Edinburgh but post-show it’s a bit…
