NOTTING GOOD TASTE



A brand new comedy night takes place on November 13th from 8pm, being held at the 20th Century Theatre (London’s Notting Hill area), hosted by Guy Pratt and fea­turing Adam Hills, Miles Jupp, Geoff Boyz and Watson & Oliver.

Notting Good Taste” is in fact quite the oppo­site. It’s a round-​​​​up of some of the best comedy talent around, served up in tasty morsels, resulting in a full serving of mirth and laughter. It is hosted by inter­na­tion­ally renowned musi­cian and come­dian Guy Pratt, whose twenty-​​​​five odd years spent living in the area seems to make him think he has the right to front some­thing like this.

Tickets are priced at £15 each and include a free cock­tail and raffle ticket.

The UK’s Multiple Sclerosis Society is the ben­e­fi­ciary of this spe­cial night.

    it´s great you are doing this charity show… good for you guy.

  2. Andy - November 12, 2008 5:52 AM

    Hey Guy, Im a bass player in Australia and have been waiting to see the show since you started touring with it. I live in Victoria and will not be able to travel to Adelaide, Sydney or Perth for the show as I cannot afford it. How come you missed Melbourne? It is the Performing Arts cap­ital of Australia.

    Will you get a chance to do a show in Melbourne this time as I would like to bring my 9 yar old son Max who reckons you are the best bass player going around (even better than me)? I dont want to wait for many more years to see you.

    Cheers Andy

    Andy
    Sadly part of the deal with Adelaide is that I don’t play Melbourne..

  4. Anthony - November 14, 2008 5:55 PM

    Guy,

    You are prob­ably the coolest Bass player ever! I never real­ized I have heard you on so many records. I am familiar with your work with David, and It’s just awe­some!

    I am won­dering, is there any plan to bring your show to the States? I’d really like to see it.

    And by the way, and I am sure you have heard this before, but I learned to play bass by lis­tening to your tech­nique on PULSE.

    Cheers Mate,
    Anthony

    Hi Guy,

    Just wanted to say what a great night the 13th Nov was. Not usu­ally one for staying up late but because of the excel­lent acts, great venue and cheap pizza and drinks I stayed awake for the entire show. Really enjoyed our­selves and it was topped off by win­ning a fan­tastic raffle prize (posh prizes or what). And what was really cool was that it was for a charity too (I raised over 2 grand last year for MS run­ning NY marathon). So if you plan to do more nights like this, let me and Tim know & we will encourage our Willesden posse to come along. And/​Or if your con­sid­ering a more north London loca­tion I may have a few ideas.

    Fantastic MCing, matey, maybe you could give up your day job?

    Lots of Love

    Sian.

    Hi Guy,
    I dis­cov­ered you when I was watching a DVD of Gary Moore.
    You played together at Montreux Jazz Festival in 1997.

    During the song “Parisienne Walkways” Gary had a problem and stop playing during 1 or 2 min­utes.
    The drummer was still playing, and you started to play with a very strange sound…
    Do you remember how to do this sound? I call it a “Liquid Bass Sound” !

    What kind of multi-​​effects you had during this show?

    I was very sad when I knew the death of R.Wright, I’m sad because I was to young to see a Pink Floyd Show…

    Keep playing, and have fun.

  7. Thomas Robinson - November 26, 2008 6:45 PM

    Hi Guy, hope you got to Australia okay.

    Are you per­forming a new show or is it the same rou­tine you did back in Britain? Or is this all just an elab­o­rate cover so we’ll all be sur­prised when you turn up as a new camp-​​mate on “I’m a celeb (with a failing/​failed career) get me into the jungle (and on camera)”?

    Unfortunately i often don’t get to hear your radio show live but i usu­ally manage to catch it on the listen again fea­ture. Will your show be staying in its usual time slot or is it get­ting changed so you don’t have to get up quite so early to do it, or is it just going to be pre-​​recorded?

    Sorry for the deluge of ques­tions, hope every­thing goes well, which i’m sure it will.

    Thomas Robinson

    P.s. I have got an idea for a new name for your show but it depends on how Australians react to Monty Python’s ‘Bruce’s’ sketch as to whether it would be funny(ish) or just plain dan­gerous.

  8. Karen - November 28, 2008 12:14 AM

    Good luck for Perth show tonight.

    Imagine how I felt when the flight atten­dant announced that the state of the art, award win­ning in-​​flight enter­tain­ment system would NOT be working on my Virgin flight back from New York this weekend. Groans all round. I started ‘My Bass…’ as we taxied and had fin­ished it in time for an hour’s kip before landing at Heathrow. Nice one, ter­rific enter­tain­ment!

  13. Phoenix - December 2, 2008 9:31 PM

    Interesting new look to the blog, Guy.

    The graphic at the top kinda looks like you’re holding a lightsaber and messing about. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Nix.
