I’m very happy with my new spot in The Stag’s Head – downstairs in the Pub Theatre area. Very intimate (as befits Ulysses!) and nice and quiet. I performed a couple of times in this area last year when there was live music on the street outside which would have scuppered the show. The only thing that caused a bit of an issue last year was the scraping of stools on the floor in the main bar upstairs. Genius that I am, I solved the problem for this year. I stuck felt pads on the feet of all of the stools in the bar a couple of weeks ago – with the permission of the management, of course. It took a while, but it worked!
The numbers have been growing steadily each week since I started back on March 5th last. If it keeps going like this I’ll have to hire the O2 Arena, or perhaps Croke Park, before the end of the year. Yeah, wishful thinking!
