We arrived at the Jazz Cafe just in time to catch the promising tail end of blues infused folk maestro Ian King, who was followed by a set from comedian Richard Herring, trudging out the same old jokes (last heard at Latitude this summer) about his sad child less bachelor life. Is he in fact happily married, I wonder? Is it all just part of the comic schtick? He had clearly come prepared for a slightly more rowdy pre gig audience, with some poetry that he had written as an 18 year old virgin during his gap year "they called it a year out in those days". Lines such as "The only water that was pure was from an orphan's tears," elicited plenty of giggles.
