It would probably be better to adopt fake accents in shops where people don't know me. Then it's more of an acting challenge.
Second stupidity of the day was the email I just sent asking the Black Cat Comedy Club if they would book me. I made a typo in the start line and called them Black Bat. Then I decided to just go for it and replace all the occurrences of the letter "c" with "b". This is an old Monty Python sketch and it was funny for them. I did well with it, pointing out that I appeared to be making that joke. Then I directed them to www.ashleyfrieze.bo.uk and it all got a bit mental. They'll probably not appreciate my "whacky" appeal for a gig, but at least I had fun doing it. Trying to be funny while asking for gigs is a real taboo. Still, I couldn't help it... so at least I had some comic fun from them, even if it wasn't on their stage.
Don't ask me why I'm in such a playfully subversive mood. I don't know. Probably stress.
