Last night played host to the first ever Long and to the Wright live show as we performed at a student poetry night in Greenwich called Word. Our role being to provide a Comedic break half way through the evening.
All in all we’d call it a resounding success! The room was packed, the audience were lovely, and we think our routine went down pretty well. And we were also very impressed by all the poetry on offer which was a great mixture ranging from personal and poignant to laugh-out-loud funny. Our very own Marc Wright was so inspired that he took to the stage once more to do some of his own witty verse, culminated in a passionate cover of John Cooper Clarke’s “Twat!” complete with a thick Salford twang.
The event was organised and masterfully compered by our good friend Sam Gilbert who also helped us out by taping the show for us. The video is now on Youtube and you can check it out here, see if you can spot the technical issues with Marc’s big ending (that’ll teach us for buying props at the pound-store)
What’s next? Well, hopefully more live shows if we can get them (if anyone has an event they’d like us to perform at please let us know) and our first video episode, which has been written and is currently on-hold while technical specifics are ironed out.
We’ll keep you all posted on our movements (no, not those movements)
