Saturdays are usually busy and today was no exception. With hordes of people milling around the Black Market bar getting people in wasn't too arduous and the room was full almost as soon as the previous act finished up. When things got underway it was clear that, though numerous, the audience weren't as up for it as they should have been and reactions were positive but muted throughout. The bucket was majority change and I reviewed my free fringe speech accordingly in the aftermath.
A hearty curry at the Mosque Kitchen later, Anna and I started recruiting crew for First World Problems and were confronted with a room packed to bursting as a result. Tales of the Unexpected kicked things off nicely but Craft Fair utterly destroyed the room with people shouting out with total abandon. From there on it was easy and conversation with everyone flowed freely. Come the end the bucket was respectable and we popped in on John Long's completely packed out Winded before pizza, wine and an opportune photo of Anna and her engagement ring (yes, this team is for life!) before then shouting randomly at the Drunk N Heckle Show.
