I love this description of Acting from Peter O'Toole..."Acting is a matter of farting about in disguise."
And on that age old subject of sex... "Sex and sleep are my two favourite things. If I could do both at the same time I'd be a happy man. I always envy my girlfirend that trick."...Ed Byrne.

Busy week this week lots of people to thank. Gigs from last Friday which was the Harvest Supper which suddenly became a Peaky Blinders Night at the last minute. Over at Chorley Village Hall where Jen and the gang had worked really hard to turn it into the "Garrison". Enjoyed it in a strange "seat of the pants" sort of way. Thanks to all.
Tuesday was first night of the "A Black Country Night Out" Theatre Tour. Great time despite the first night nerves. Wonderful to be met by our friend James Collins who works at the Grand and was himself on the tour a couple of years back. Thanks to all the Staff there and to the fab. audience who came along to support us.
Friday we were back at Wishaw Golf Club where we have played many times before. Great to see Sue and Richard and all the regulars who we have got to know over the years.
Saturday afternoon/evening we worked at a private surprise party. Many thanks to all the people we have met this week who have taken time to say "Hello" and chat.

BRIAN YEATES ASSOCIATES PRESENTS
A BLACK COUNTRY NIGHT OUT

Show regulars Dandy are one of the most sought after comedy acts, husband and wife, Allan and Glyn are always right on the button with their constantly refreshed routines.
It is a great pleasure to welcome the band behind the Black Country Anthem...THE EMPTY CAN..who have performed all over the world but have their hearts firmly in the Black Country.
We welcome some new faces to the show. OLLIE SPENCER, one of the regions finest comedians whose showbusiness credentials include being the drummer (so many comedians were drummers!) with the Idle Race whose lineup included Jeff Lynne.
We are introducing the wonderful JOE THOMAS who will be putting a smile on your face and have you singing some classic songs performed on his ukelele - any George Formby fans out there?
And your Master of Ceremonies 2018 is the very funny WAYNE BEESE.
THE BLACK COUNTRY NIGHT OUT IS BACK - packed to the brim with music, mirth and merriment!
"What a great night....just like it used to be!"

What a great summer we have all had despite all the black socks and sandals on show. I have decided with my Birthday imminent not to worry about what people think...they don't do it very often.
Still on a bit of a summer break. Just doing the odd gig to keep our memory's ticking over.
Great night over at CANNOCK WOOD AND GENTLESHAW W.I.It was a big celebration for their 90th year. As you can see from picture they let Allan bring a balloon home...he will only have to hang on to it for 5 years to use it. Thank you so much for asking us to share it with you and for making us so welcome. Enjoy all your trips out and meetings.
Friday we went over to do a gig at the PENCRIC Extra Care Housing Association at Penkridge. Wonderful place. Very smart and the people there were very pleased with the standard of care. Excellent staff and great food. Allan wanted to put his name down when he heard about the food. I am Mircowave compatible and my Signature Dish is Fishfinger sarnie.Thanks to the lovely crowd on people. Good to meet you all.

The real reason men go fishing is that it is the only time they will ever hear somebody say "Oh my God, that's a big one!"
The three worst words a woman can hear when she is making love....."Honey, I'm home"!

Just one gig this weekend which is good. Shouldn't moan but I feel heat zapped and have damaged my ribs which makes it hard to wear my usual amount of re-structuring corsetry. Allan always refers to this as .. two sand buckets and a piece of strong rope! There will be no jigging about tonight.! Great to have a Saturday night reading my book in the garden with a glass of red.
Friday we were over at CURDSWORTH for the W.I. This was a Pudding Evening and they had allowed some of the men to join them.
Great to see our friends John and Jan, Chrissie Dance and friends and to get to meet some of the ladies. We had a wonderful night with them. Many thanks to all for their kindness.

The old ones..
A ninety two year old man went to the Doctor for a Medical. A few days later the Doc. saw him walking down the street with a beautiful young woman on his arm
At his follow up visit the Doc. said "You look like you are having the time of your life."
"Doing what you told me..."Get a Hot Momma and be cheerful!"
Doc. said "Think you need a Hearing Check as well...I said "You've got a Heart Murmur....be careful!!"

Just one gig this weekend. Over at CUTNALL GREEN with our friend BEV PEGG and some of his Rock and Roll Band including our old friend, DAVE SLATER. Hadn't seen the lads for a while so it was good to have a catch up.
Special 70th Birthday for Willy who had seen us many times. Great family and lovely friends.
Many thanks to all for giving us such a great welcome and for the lovely Sophie who did me a special drawing. Hope you enjoy the C.D., Willy.

Overheard in a Pub on Boy's Night Out...I'm in a bad place...I've got a teenage daughter and a Menopausal wife. One's growing breasts and one's growing a beard! I can't win!
I love some of the old jokes...and No...I don't mean Allan....
"I came from a big family. Four of us slept in the same bed. When we got cold, Mother threw in another brother."........Bob Hope.

Saturday night we were close to home. We were playing at BLYMILL VILLAGE HALL just off the A.5. Just off the A.5 and down lots of very narrow lanes which made me curl my toes and clench my fists and make little whimpering noises....and eventually made Allan shout "Will you just shut up! After visiting the next village along the route...unnecessarily...we finally arrived BACK at Blymill! Good to see Helen again and all of the crowd from Allscott Sugar Beet . Nice to meet your Scottish friends from Norfolk...who managed to understand us and enjoyed it. Thanks to all for coming along.

I think one reason they call them "Relaxed Fit" jeans is because they don't want to say "To fit a Bum the size of Bilston"..
Couldn't resist this old gag that Tommy Mundon and most of the Black Country team told at one time or another...
"Grandad why are you sitting in the garden with no trousers on? - "Well, last week I sat out here without a shirt and I got a stiff neck. This is your Grandma's idea!" B..Boom!

After a truly horrendous journey on the M42 Friday night. Chocca the Blocka and melting all the way in gridlock after an accident and down to one lane.we arrived at the beautiful village of Upper Bentley. Newly washed hair had flopped and I had wilted. People there were great and made us so welcome. Thanks to Elizabeth and John for asking us along.
Allan fell in love with a very friendly cow called "Gran" who is a family pet and loves people. I fear I shall be replaced if she can sing. Great to meet one of the Boggery Girls...Pat. She took part in one of the Pantos and was always ready to join in the fun. Good to catch up after all these years.Thanks to all the people who came to chat to us and to the lady for giving me a bottle of wine.

As we are in Football Mode...
Some of the things said over the years............
I'd love to be a Mole on the wall in the Liverpool Dressing Room at half time. Kevin Keegan....Bless him!
I used to play football in my youth...then my eyes went bad...so I became a Referee. Morecambe and Wise.
"What would you be if you weren't a footballer?"........."A Virgin!"...Reporter and Peter Crouch.
He dribbles a lot and the opposition don't like it...you can see it all over their faces! Ron Atkinson.

Quiet time of the year for Dandy.Writing new mateial. Hoping to get a bit more up to date with songs. Might even get to learn one from the 80s!!
Just a couple of gigs last weekend. Great to be asked to do the CANNOCK WOOD AND GENTLESHAW LADIES DAY again this year. It is a great afternoon. Beautiful Flower Arranging Displays by the very talented Sue. The room looked beautiful and there was the usual jewellery and clothes, shoes stalls in the adjoining room. Beautiful day and they had a scrummy lunch. Allan wolfed all of our cakes while I was looking the other way. Thank you for my beautiful bouquet. Great crowd as always.

Later the same day we made our way to WALMLEY GOLF CLUB for a Birthday Party for Roger who looked amazingly young. What a great crowd of friends and family. Thank you so much for making us welcome and for the lovely people who came to chat at the end.

These are two gigs to celebrate the ife of John Hendley who died suddenly at the beginning of this year. Some of you may have known him from his work with the Wolves, some of you may have known him from Folk Clubs.
We knew him as a friend and fellow performer since 1978 and he is much missed by all who did know him.
If any of you are interested there are 2 concerts and hopefully something for everyone will be covered....unless you like heavy metal or rap.

The gig was in a Skittle Alley. Luckily we had possession of the balls and the skittles .Allan improvising backstage because there was no darts!!
