In Memory of Karl 'Edrik' Manson 1970 - 2010
In terms of performance, I really do not know how it could've been better. Don't take my word for it, though, find one of the 120 people who attended. For myself, the entire evening was a logistical nightmare; I had no idea how much work would be involved and had I known, well, I'm not convinced I'd have decided to push ahead. But, I did and full throttle was applied: BEEP BEEP, make way, BEEP BEEP, here comes the pimped up comedy night.
Some of the highlights, for me, were presenting my brother, James, and my friend, Mark, with their Birthday cakes; getting a hug from my Mum and being told how proud she was of me and seeing so many friends who made the effort to come down and support me. I was genuinely quite touched.
The room was packed and there was a great atomosphere. I think that was as much to do with the quality of the audience as it was the quality of the performers. I've got some really good friends. There were quite a few other people who helped make that night possible.
Thanks people, you were superb. An additional thanks to the venue manager Jane, who amongst other things came up with the great idea of bringing in the outside benches to create a diner experiance in the pool room - the food was 'off the radar' delicious.
It's now all about March 20th.
