(By the way, the audience wasn't mic'ed so you can really hear me loudly over the laughs.)

You can be in a bar and say, "Your mother's a cunt," to a guy and he'll just say, "Easy lad, there's now need for that."
But you talk to the same guy and say, "I'm a fan of Manchester United," and he'll say, "Alright, let's step outside; you're about to taste your own blood."

Free doesn't always guarantee quality, but this particular show is well worth a visit. The main act, Liam McEneaney, is an experienced comic cast in a similar mould to Kevin Smith: American, geeky and very funny. The material is simple, focusing mostly on his childhood, his relationships and therapy with 'Death of a Salesman', but his take and delivery are exquisite. The show suffers from 'Edinburgh Problems' - an awkward room half full of noontime stragglers - even so, the show is seriously funny. Not quite a celebrity yet, but if he gets the audiences I can't wait to see his name in lights - if Brendon Burns or Glen Wool are too much for you give Liam and his chums a try.
Laughing Horse @ Meadow Bar, 31 Jul - 25 Aug (not 23), 12.05pm (1.05pm), fpp 106.
tw rating 4/5
And more important (to me, if no one else), here's a person who took a bus to check out the Fringe, and she liked the show (you have to scroll down a bit).

Secondly, I want to introduce you to my buddy, The Coach:
He was sitting in his own seat on the R train a few days before I left, so I picked him up, gave him a good washing, and brought him along as my mascot. Hopefully he'll bring me some good luck, although the way the Mets are going, they may need him more than I do.
Alright, more chat laterzez.
