I do laugh when I watch Micky Flanagan, however, other than going to see Billy Connolly at the Apollo in London I wasn’t sure that anyone could compare to him, also would I enjoy a full performance of Micky Flanagan? I had only seen Micky on a few shows for a few minutes. He didn’t disappoint, he is hilarious!
Micky came on stage at about 8:15 apologising for being late which was due to the buses! He doesn’t have a warm up act which was great! He explained how the show would go – two 45 minute acts with an interval of twenty five minutes ‘mainly so old girls could go to the toilet’. He understands that his audience will be mainly middle aged! This wasn’t the case. The audience were a very mixed age group. Micky said he would like us to do a standing ovation as his mentality was that it would be overtime for him and he would get paid extra! We had a very enjoyable evening. He doesn’t compare to Billy, but, he is so funny and I would definitely go and see him again. So sad that his mum passed away this week.
We stayed at the Morton Hotel in Russell Square one of the hotels owned by the Imperial Group. Great location! Russell Square is one stop from London Kings Cross – we could have walked but it was pouring down when we arrived in London. Whatever you do, don’t attempt to climb the stairs at the Russell Square tube. We did because there were crowds of people waiting for the lifts, 176 stairs later we needed oxygen!! To get to the O2 we took the Piccadilly Line to Green Park and the Jubilee Line to North Greenwich.
Sunday was a glorious day so we went for a stroll in the gardens and went to the British Museum which is located in Russell Square before catching the 13:52 Grand Central to York. York being the first stop and just over two hours journey.
Have you been to see Micky Flanagan at The O2 this year? Let us know in the comments below!
