Four and a Half Hours In Helsinki

That’s what I am doing today, it is a busy Christmas season and there are a lot of shows to do.

We had a great night at Club Prive, the room was full and the crowd was really nice, our intro had the laughs rolling and they kept coming all night. Aron Flam was our headliner and Ive liked his comedy since the first time we had him on in Stockholm. A highlight for me was Andrei Tuch’s performance. Andrei is the last of the Comedy Estonia crew to get up at Prive and Andrei brought the jokes and the delivery. He had his best gags and great delivery and the audience really got into his stuff, Andrei did great.

So why am I spending 4.5 hours in Helsingfors? Today I have a Christmas party performance there, its for an IT department and I am really looking forward to it, MY people!

Then after the show I am on a ferry back to Tallinn and then a bus to Tartu because Friday night we have our last Christmas party show. THEN later that night, its the 1 year birthday party for our favourite bar, Möku. T Shirt time… shirts off time… it might get to pants off time on Friday night.

Im exhausted, ironically because theres so much going on I havnt been sleeping well. Thats the lifestyle and I love it. Once I get through today’s gig, it’s smooth sailing and on Sunday its 35 hours of China South Dodgy air to Sydney. Ive been talking to their customer support and I am already convinced my bags wont be joining me in Sydney.

Get some, go again. Time for some jokes.
