Many thanks to all you guys.

This performance began with me mopping and miming to Simon and Garfunkle's Sounds of Silence. I have cut that out but, never fear! There is more Simon and Garfunkel in the show, so you won't miss out.

I hadn’t performed for quite a while when I did this show. I more or less just hopped on stage in front of 80 people and, in a very unprofessional way, I freaked out a couple of times. What can I say? Shit happens. It’s still a good performance.

 

The footage pauses briefly near the end then continues.

 

COLONIC IRRIGATION

        

September 2000. 43 minutes long.

Written and performed by myself.

Directed and filmed by James Manser.

 

I have cut the beginning from this performance as it was a bit slow. So it starts at a nice dramatic section! I like this performance, though it does have a couple of cringe-worthy moments. But, on the whole, it’s a bit of fun. Fun and perhaps poignant – it might give you an idea of where I was in life at the time. I’ve always had friends, and friends mean the world to me, but when I was younger I was definitely a lost soul. This performance, like all of my work around this time, grew out of a lot of pain.

 

Still, we have to be able to laugh at ourselves, and I think I managed that. If you have the time, and the inclination, I think you will enjoy this show.
