Best thing I saw at Edinburgh Fringe: LetLuce in "Sea Men (A Naval Tale)"

This show was amazing. Not sure how I heard about this one or came to find it, might have been on a list somewhere. Or I might have been searching the listings for Mighty Boosh and found these compared to them. Might just have been prowling the listings of The Caves because I loved that venue last time. Anyway, find it we did.

I said to Clare before the show that I had a good feeling about this one and good grief was that right. It's a very very funny show about a sea captain who catches a giant fish, they get talking and discover they're both heading to the same place. The mysterious River Island each for their own reasons. We meet other characters on the way, played by the same two. Little bit of audience participation too, but just so funny. I cried because I was laughing, and then found that when I stopped laughing I was still crying, because I loved it so much. The characters are great, the timing excellent, I loved everything about this.

Here's a sneaky picture from inside the show, taken from my seat, without the flash so as not to be annoying, glad it came out ok. Not sure it's normally ok to do this but I loved it so much I really wanted a souvenir of the show.

I did get a sticker too, but I think I cried on it, and now I bet it's gone through the washing machine.

I got a picture after the show too, like a twat. The fish had changed out of her costume but the captain was still partly in character:

No idea how to see Let Luce next, I expect the next time will be on TV.

Off to to rate them there and find out what other people are saying. They're on the twitter but it's all emoticons, don't judge them on that. Their website:

This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
