My evening with Miranda

Hello, readers. Now, as the title of this blog post suggests, I spent last night with Miranda Hart. No – alas – it wasn’t just me and her (I’d love to meet her and become her friend, wouldn’t you?) but me, Miranda, and a whole arena full of people.

And do you know what? I came away feeling not only jolly from all the laughter, but – inspired.

Now, I’ve seen a fair few comedians live, and some of them have been absolutely hilarious… but this was more than just a stand-up show. Miranda threw a party; complete with buffet, a sing-a-long, and much to my delight; the Whigfield Saturday Night dance … and amongst all the fun and frolics, she told some very funny anecdotes interlaced with references to her sitcom (my favourite TV show). In summary; it was the best comedy show I’ve been to.

Most wonderful of all though, she inspired me. She talked about making life more fun – for example, we should all gallop more often. And, on the way to the car, my friend and I did gallop – and it was such fun – plus we got there quicker, so multiple benefits there. I aim to gallop far more from now on. I also plan to act more like I’m living in a musical, to dance and do the popstar routine regularly, to care less about what others think and just be me, and to eat more desserts (Miranda suggests four desserts, one fork – what brilliance).

Really, I cannot convey in words how splendid the whole show was; but if you love Miranda then go see her live. You won’t regret it.

I will leave you with the wonderful words of Heather Small, which of course, blasted out as we were leaving the arena:

What have you done today to make yourself feel proud?

  1. Sounds like such a fun show! I’d love to see Miranda live one day!! 🙂 I definitely like the idea of having more fun. Maybe I should try galloping! lol Great post, Sarah! 🙂

  2. Such fun! Such fun! I agree we just don’t have enough fun in life. And we blame it on so many different things. No money, too much stress, not enough energy, too many other responsibilities, not enough time, etc. The list goes on and on. Miranda is truly inspirational. I hope to see her sometime, too.
