I saw Phil Nichols last night, doing his "Edinburgh preview" show (i.e. he
hadn't worked out all the material). Still, he was brilliant, and went
down very well.
He had a theramin (spelling?) and various other instruments, and at one stage he got members of the audience on stage to play while he ad-libbed lyrics on the spot.
He also did "Only Gay Eskimo" - as his last or close to last song - which went down very well. You can download a copy of this (as performed by PN in Corky And The Juice Pigs
) from: http://uk.briefcase.yahoo.com/arthurmstern
If you're an obsessive fan, you'll want to know it was at the Cheeky
Monkey Comedy Club, in the Station pub, Kings Heath, Birmingham, England on the 10th of July.
