Ages Editing This New Promo Video

I spent about 30 hours editing this! OK that might in part be because I was learning to use Adobe Premiere Pro. Wow, this software is so amazing! It was such a pleasure to play around with it. If you are a performer of any kind, I recommend very much to watch videos of your shows. It is very revealing and is helping me a lot to see the good things I do and the annoying habits that need to be dropped like laughing at my own jokes.

Summer Shows

Oh I had a great time at Swan Shopping Centre in Leatherhead last Monday and made this vlog of the day. I’m not always this good and organised but I was on a mission this week and I got in the gym before the shows and at the end of the day I was absolutely shattered but with a big smile on my face for the lovely people I met at those shows and the happy kids I met.

I popped along to Sutton high street yesterday to see their Sutton Beach event. Frankly it all looked a bit chaotic. Loads of adults packed together on deck chairs looking miserable and loads of kids in a pile of sand. I am sorry to blow my own trumpet but in the same space they could have booked me to do magic shows and the kids would have been mich happier, barking with laughter, no mess to deal with and the grown ups would have enjoted the shows too.

Hope you liked the vlog. I am going to be making more videos. I have a lot filmed already that I need to edit. Subscrube to my channel if you like that kind of daft fun.

Stand-Up Comedy

Woah! I did my first stand up comedy gig last night at the awesome Comedy Virgins at the Cavendish Arms in Stockwell. I had been secretly studying and writing stand-up comedy the last few months to work towards my first 5 minutes on a stage without any balloons, magic tricks or a giggle-ready bunch of 5-year-olds in front of me.

Ritchie's first stand up comedy night.

I didn’t quite have the whole room barking with laughter but then I did get some laughs.  So I think it was a success. It surprised me that the whole room cheered at the mention of “stationary” but that a stoic silence was met with my talk of “a rubber fist”.

They have a random order of comics on the night meaning everytime the compere calls for “a big to cheer to welcome to the stage…..” every act of the night puts down their drink ready to march to the stage. This was nice for me as I was the 43rd act of 45 on the night.

The very funny and lovely man Adrian Tauss was compereing. We briefly danced as I went on stage I seem to remember and as my five minutes ended I tightly hugged Adrian like a fireman who had dug me out of an earthquake rubble.  My plan for next time is to extend the dance section to 4 minutes and drop some of the material I wrote for this set, maybe 38 of the 40 jokes.
