Danielle Ward – In Glorious Technicolour
In 2008 I took my debut solo stand-up show to Edinburgh. I took the title from watching The Wizard of Oz. No wonder the gays love me. It didn’t have a grand theme or narrative, there was not a lesbian robot to be seen and I didn’t sing at all. It was weird doing a show so late and by myself after being with other people for the past three years, but I really loved it. I especially enjoyed not having to leave my flat until 10pm. I did jokes about getting my boobs out for cash, decapiated heads and Nicolas Anelka.
Fact: Neil and Christine Hamilton came to see the show but had to sit on opposite sides of the room as I’d sold out.
