As many of us are of a certain age I just thought I'd report in and say I'm just back from seeing him tonight. Absolutely hilarious from him and one of the support poets Luke Smith was also very good.

If he comes to a town near you on this tour then get tickets, a great night out!

That's John Otway you're thinking about. A thoroughly nice guy by the way, worked with him years ago.

As they say,
"If you can remember it, you weren't there..."
but wasn't that something else?
