Woken By Russians


In Tartu and last night we were woken by some Russian guys yelling downstairs. Unfortunately my Russian is limited to 4 words. Dah, Nyt, Speciba and Sooka. The last two words are “thank you” and “bitch”. I swear I didn’t learn these last two words together.

It It has been another big week, 4 shows in 4 days: Tartu, Tallinn, Helsinki and back to Tartu again. Its the 4th day which wears me out, even though Ive managed to limit my alcohol intake to just a few beers each night, in combination with endless moving and not a piece of fruit in sight, it all takes its toll.

November and December are the business months for a comedian because of all the private gigs we get around Christmas. So this wont really let up until the new year. We have a cool private show booked on new years in Tallinn so that will sort of be a symbolic end of the race I think.

I took this photo at the Drink Bar in Tallinn show this week. I really like this one, it shows the crowd all packed in and having a good time. I know most of them are only smiling but that is having a good time for Estonians.
