The pub was unusually quiet, four of the acts had pulled out at the last minute and one of the speakers had gone awol yet Bear Jokes rolled on. Just. I've heard about when shows have become workshops - where the audience is pretty much just acts critiquing each other's new material but had never come close to that scenario at one of my own. Until last night. Disappointing in many ways of course but it was a novel and in many ways productive experience. I'd just rather it never happened again.
