Only $20 a ticket, plus $6 booking fee which is so annoying, we decided to see a Comedy Festival performance. As a long time listener to Tommy Dassalo's podcast, Little Dum Dum Club, I thought we might see him live, so we did. It was in a very tiny room at ACMI called the Games Room and consisted of tiered benches, most uncomfortable. There were about twenty people there on a Tuesday night and the performance was good, but I am inclined to enjoy two performers with a good rapport. One comedian on stage, with a small audience and being funny for an hour is quite a challenge, but Dassalo succeeded.
We had dinner at the venerable hotel Young and Jacksons and finished off with a drink at the rooftop cider bar where we had a chat to a pleasant young Irish lad who was either just being friendly or he may have thought two older gay men might buy him a drink. We didn't.
We were home by nine and while it is an effort to go to things at times, we are pleased we did.
