Friends, True Believers, Seekers, ComComrades, you.
This is the show I made for the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015. The previous tour show was about being desperate to have a baby, this one is about breaking up with my potential babymama, and my current tour show "Compared To What" sort of resolves this little trilogy.
I say that as if I'm not going to keep banging on about my personal life.
It later became my debut UK tour show, in Spring of 2016. A veteran touring comic would ordinarily perform two halves of 40 mins, but I hadn't thought about that, and arrogantly refused to break up what I determined to be the "flow" of the show. So I opened with the hour, and then after an interval I let *those who wanted to* come back for some wonky new stuff from notes, and a Q&A about my "Comedian's Comedian" podcast.
This was great fun, but probably unsustainable once people start having financial expectations.
It hasn't stopped me planning to try it again though!
So if you'd like to come and see the new tour show "Compared To What" in UK or at Mebourne International Comedy Festival, you can find tickets at www.comedianscomedian.com/tour
If you've read this far, you can join in a little game. Use your review of the album on this page to try and guess which single observation in the show was provided by my now fiancee?
Clue: comedian Josh Widdicombe got it in one, and said it had "McIntyre levels of brilliance"...
