Mercat Bar-Your Mothers got a Fridge Magnet from Jupiter!

Even though this is away far out on the 'fringe of the Fringe' this is an excellent venue and a good size room for a one man show with plenty floor space to walk around and talk to the audience.

Audience numbers were very healthy at the weekends but through the week punters were a bit scarce.

We had a good mix of nationalities in which made it all the more interesting and the bar staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpfull.

On the other hand this is primarily a 'food pub' so when upstairs was full they occasionaly sent diners downstairs to sit in the comedy and munch away at their grub. They clearly didnt want to be there and it did change the tone of the whole evening. Late night shows did not have this problem.

And to finish, i certainly had a ball and to me thats what the Free Fringe is all about!

And a big thanks to PBH for pulling the rabbit out the hat yet again.
Keep Smiling!
