Thank you so much for supporting the Covid Arms.
I'm going to be sentimental for a second here so if you can't deal with emotions (you're a member of my close family) stop reading now. Thank you so much to everyone who's bought a ticket and entered into the spirit of things. The atmosphere online around this gig is so overwhelmingly positive, it's such a beautiful thing. It is nearly impossible to have success with something without absolute dicksplats being drawn to it and wanting to be negative. The fact the Covid Arms is doing such a good job of being a fun and positive space means loads to me, thank you. We've raised over 50 grand for the Trussell Trust now, I cannot tell you the difference that's making. We've also been able to support comedians who've had their livelihood obliterated by this bizarre and tragic situation. Thank you for coming along and donating and allowing these comedians to help themselves out of their situation by doing what they do best, making people laugh. It's a very empowering thing you're facilitating in a world where any control we had of our careers has evaporated.
Next Saturday's line up (obv all line ups are subject to change because people get ill etc) is a belter. Rose Matafeo, Danny McLoughlin, Ross Noble and music from Robbie Cavanagh. We've been having competitions to win a bottle of gin, because why not, and they've been so fun. This week's competition will be pictures of your quarantined pets watching the show. It's just an excuse to look at loads of dogs and cats tbh but you've paid £2 so you can't moan.
It's possible we might only have a few more weeks of these shows so enjoy them while you can and to whet your appetite Russell Howard, Ed Gamble and Russell Kane are all booked in the next few weeks.
