Guest Postcards From Brighton – Piff and Mr. Piffles

October 11, 2012 |

The second postcard has just arrived through our letterbox from Brighton. This time it’s from Piff the Magic Dragon:

What are your top 5 things to do/ see in Brighton?

– Buy hot donuts by the sea front

– Attempt to eat donuts whilst fending off hungry seagulls and one magic performing chihuahua.

– Realise defeat is inevitable and sacrifice 90% of donut purchase to seagulls.

– Wonder where chihuahua has gone.

– Realise he’s been eaten by still hungry seagull.

Which is your favourite bar?

Dragons aren’t allowed alcohol. It combusts. So instead I will nominate my favourite donut stand, which is the one that is nearest my venue.

What about your favourite restaurant?

See previous answer.

Tell us a shop you love and what have you bought there?

Daisy daisy. I bought a princess, king, prince & dragon finger puppet set. Righted a few wrongs that day with those bad boys.

Tell us a little story – What’s your funniest, weirdest or happiest Brighton experience? 

Once I got a note from someone in the audience because they felt Mr Piffles’ eyes contained all the sadness in the world and he looked truly truly miserable. She wanted me to do something to cheer him up. Sadly however, that’s just his face.

The rest of Piff’s live dates can be found here.

Guest Postcards From Brighton – Lloyd Langford’s Fist of Fun

October 11, 2012 | 1

Over the next few days we’ll be posting postcards from various comedians appearing at Dave’s Brighton Comedy Festival. Our first one come’s from Lloyd Langford. Watch this space for more:

What are your top 5 things to do/ see in Brighton?

1) Watching Dan Atkinson spending over ten pounds on the pier trying to win a snow globe at the penny waterfalls.

2) Have Eggs Benedict at Nia. Delicious!

3) A snoop around Wax Factor on Trafalgar Street. Excellent choice of second hand music and books.

4) I like a stroll along the promenade in the sunshine.

5) Fish & chips at Harry Ramsden’s. He was a sort of Northern Ronald McDonald.

Which is your favourite bar?

The Komedia, after everyone else has left, and it’s just the comics and the staff. 

What about your favourite restaurant?

I’m going to say Bill’s. I took the piss out of the manager at a gig once then she gave me a free meal. 

Tell us a shop you love and what have you bought there?

Prowler. I’ll answer this question with a photo.

Tell us a little story – What’s your funniest, weirdest or happiest Brighton experience? 

I got invited to a house party at Katie Price’s next door neighbour’s house that involved skinny dipping, fancy dress and indoor petanque with some sort of alcohol-based penalty system. That was pretty memorable.
