Brian Gittins – Roadside Cafe Owner
Brian promised to be a tough character to interview, then proceeded to come on in character as … the grumpy man wot runs the roadside cafe off the A23 in West Sussex.
By day, Brian runs a greasy spoon. “Probably the best roadside café in a 12-mile radius of Pyecombe,” he croaks. “And those aren’t my words.” By night, he’s an aspiring comedian, here to showcase an almost-but-not-quite chaotic compendium of games, drawings, singalongs, and bizarrely bad non-jokes. Every day at the Pleasance Courtyard at 4:45pm till 31st August.
Chris Devotion of Elvis Suicide gave us a very witty – for a weegie – and for a muso – interview. Having arrived early, he got to experience the black-out in the station while someone fixed the fuse, thinking his pal, Andrew, had hoaxed him into coming on to live radio. His wise cracks are legion and really should consider a side-line in comedy.
Described as punk / rock / country on their myspace – http://www.myspace.com/theelvissuicide these guys leave u hungry for more … with their 2min30sec tracks. Truly talented artists.
Next appearing at Sneaky Pete’s on 21st Aug at 20:00.
