Me too with David Mitchell.
God, I'd love to come over with the tribe and see the city and all, but suspect it just clashes with our French tour.

I won't make any of these but a week or two later and there will be no stopping me!!

I'd love to see loads of the Dublin gigs but flippin' Listowel is on the same time. That's mad, they should talk to each other and rearrange before next year. I'll have to go in and organise them all (the threat should be enough!)
