    Never change, man

    We need rocks of consistency in these highly turbulent times.

        I still hold out my hand to Richard Whitely who died from the complications following the nine-letter anagram of "pianomenu".

          Harry Einstein - father of Albert Brooks and Bob (Super Dave Osborne) Einstein - died the same way, literally as he was finishing his set during the roast for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

              I gigged with him twice. Amazingly funny and utterly fearless. Did one of the bravest, darkest and hilarious jokes I’ve ever heard. Will type it up when I get chance.

                XS Marlarkey, 2001. The nicest comedy club in the world, run by Toby Hadoke, the nicest man in the world.

                Tobes is compering. He spots an audience member he hasn’t seen for a while (everyone is pretty much a regular).

                ”Welcome back! Er.. you’re on your own. Where is that lass you usually come with?”
                ”Um... (awkwardly) She’s not coming.”
                “Oh. She dumped you then?”
                ”Er no.”
                ”You dumped her? Brave!”
                ”Er... no.”
                ”Now I’m curious. What happened?”
                ”She dies.”
                ”Really?”
                (mate next to him nods. Room has got awkward. Toby swiftly moves on and does some extra material to bring the energy back)
                ”Ladies and gentlemen, your headline act, Mr Ian Cognito!”

                Cogs strides to the stage. Doesn’t even bother with the mic.

                “Sorry to hear about your girlfriend, mate.”
                (man gestures acknowledgement)
                ”But that’ll teach her not to try and steal my pint”

                (A hundred pairs of eyes swivel across the room and look at the guy... who practically falls off his chair laughing. We all inwardly go “Thank fuck” and are in hysterics from then until an hour later when he finally decides to leave the stage. “Sorry. Overrun a bit. Enjoying me self up there see...”)
