As an addendum to the blog I posted earlier today about the Jerry Sadowiz/Pleasance venue contretemps at the Edinburgh Fringe…
My eagle-eyed, eternally-un-named friend has spotted a Tweet posted yesterday.
I cannot guarantee it is genuine, but I have no reason to suppose it is not…
I have put asterisks in the title in case anyone feels scared by words…
So, I was at the Jerry Sadowitz show last night at #edfringe and it was fucking hilarous. There was not a single walk out I saw, people laughed, and honestly what the fuck did you expect booking him @ThePleasance? He did what he does. If you are cancelling this you are fucked.
In case anyone thinks I’m bullshitting here is my booking.
I have honestly never seen the left and right of Twitter united like this. Fuck you @ThePleasance. What he did was his act. That’s it. I understand he’s a thoroughly nice bloke away from his stage persona too.
Can confirm he did get his willy out, for anyone wondering. How many other festival shows have penises in them? Loads.
He’s also, by the way, one of the best magicians I have seen.
The comments by @ThePleasance about the walkouts are just completely fabricated btw. Neither my partner or I saw a single walk out, indeed we both commented on it after the show.
The Pleasance are just making shit up to justify what they did.
I’m on the left btw, Jerry Sadowitz does not want to become a poster boy for the right, he’s said so publicly in the past. Anyone who thinks he’s a right winger is in for a shock – expect to face tirades aimed at you and your views/beliefs if you go see him live.
Everyone is a target. That’s the point.
