It’s only my second one, but The Paddock is fast becoming one of my favourite shows to go to. Aside from the great acts and short films I really enjoy the host free format and speed with which the show progresses. Go to another show and this would have been 3 hours and started to drag. As it is there were 6 acts and some videos and it lasted just about 90 minutes plus a short interval. Perfect.
They weren’t billed as being on so it was a pleasant surprise to see Cam Spence again as well as Stuart Laws for the first time (doing stand up).
I first saw Cam Spence at this show last month and was just immediately drawn to her as a performer, she’s just delightfully weird (I mean that as nothing but a compliment) and so, so funny; I’m really looking forward to seeing her again.
I’ve really enjoyed Stuart Laws’ shows on next up and now I know that he’s just as good live so will definitely try to see him again. I very much enjoyed the pitter patter of tiny feet but was slightly disappointed that there was nary a gilet in sight.
As I keep track of these things I note that this was the 49th time I’ve been to The Bill Murray and as usual I got my preferred seat at the front by the fire exit.
