Day 23 - Date Night

Day 23 of Rosalilium's blog every day in November challenge
Date Night
(If you could take your favorite person on the perfect date where would it be? What would you do? What would you eat? What would you wear? How do you like to romance? Is romance even a thing for you?)

Me and Andrew have been married for coming up to 7 years next April and we've known each other 9 years so it seems a bit strange thinking about a 'date night'.

When we first met each other we had lots of meals out, went to the cinema occasionally and did quite a few day trips. We don't do things like that quite so often any more but the one thing we do quite regularly is go and watch a stand up comedian. It's a hobby we both share and luckily we both like the same styles of comedy.

The last comedian we went to see - he was fab (and read out my tweet on stage!)

I tried to put together a list of all the comedians we've seen but I didn't quite realise until I started, how many this would actually total up to! (and even then I'm sure I haven't remembered them all).

In the past we've seen...
Seann Walsh, Josh Widdicombe, Marcus Brigstocke, Andrew Maxwell, Lucy Porter, Shappi Khorsandi, Rich Hall, The Boy With Tape On His Face, Imran Yusaf, Russell Howard, Russell Kane, Eddie Izzard, Michael McIntyre, Dara O'Briain, Andy Parsons, Adam Hills, Chris Ramsey, Susan Calman, Danny Bhoy, Tom Stade, Ed Byrne, Mark Watson, Jon Richardson, Alex Horne, Josie Long, Holly Walsh, Miles Jupp, Robin Ince, Tim Minchin, Mark Thomas, Andrew Lawrence, Frisky and Mannish, Chris Addison, Micky Flanagan, Greg Davies, Wil Hodgson, Rob Beckett, Howard Read, Pappy's, Jarred Christmas and Phill Jupitus.

We always try and see comedians in smaller venues if possible and we've throughly enjoyed every person listed above (with the exception of two, who I'm not going to name, I'll leave you guessing...)

So our perfect date would be sharing a bag of fish and chips, seeing some comedy, laughing a lot and giggling all the way home!


  1. OMG married 7 years?! Wow! I've never seen a comedian! I never even watch them on the TV.. Maybe I would enjoy it if I did?!

    1. Haha, yep it will be 7 years next April - I don't really know where all that's gone though!

      We love seeing comedians, and the really good ones always leave us crying with laughter - if you watch something like Live at the Apollo on Fridays on BBC1 then that'll give you an idea of who would be worth seeing live :-) x
