My Wenlock & Essex preview 15th July 2013

Rick Kiesewetter 4

I decided to flyer the nearest pub (the DUKE) for audience for that evening and the next couple of Monday nights. “I’d love to see you there.” I said to a young woman sat on the picnic table who replied; “I’m the manager of Duke and I’m not sure if I’m happy about you taking business away from us.” That’s when also found out that Stewart Lee was there the same night I was trying to have a preview. I thought I may catch him as my gig could very well be cancelled. I returned to the Wenlock & Essex to find a gentleman who had taken a taxi from the Slaughtered Lamb, where my preview was originally booked, to the Wenlock to see me. So I went ahead with a small (3) but perfectly formed audience. Another unexpectedly lovely experience.
