Seven days in the life of comic host Brendhan Lovegrove
Friday night drinks? Meet me at:
The Classic Comedy Bar, of course.
Where I'll be wearing my new:
"Now we have made the soccer World Cup, let's win the thing" T-shirt.
And this weekend I'm planning on:
Making my new material funnier than it was on Wednesday with two shows at the Classic.
But first I'll need to refuel at my favourite cafe:
I'm not sure what it's called but it's opposite the Shakespeare Tavern in Albert St. There's a lady who works behind the counter who's very pretty and always polite, although I suspect she's not interested.
Saturday evening. If my dreams came true there would be a gig by:
Comically it would be Mitch Hedberg. Musically it would be the Skeptics.
But if there's nothing else doing I'll probably just:
Hang outside Rhys Darby's new house wondering where my career went so wrong and his so right.
On my stereo/headphones right now is:
Jeff Buckley, mostly. But, if I have earphones on, in summer I'm probably listening to the cricket.
The books I can't put down are:
A self-help guide to personal change.
The TV show I take the phone off the hook for:
The Cult. The more I watch it, the more I want to join Destiny Church.
The movie I've been dying to see:
I live with a German and I love war films; so a movie where the Germans win in the end so he can chill out.
A non-cooking Monday night means takeaways from:
Murder Burger on PonsonbyRd.
Or a splash-out Wednesday night restaurant would be:
The all-hours yum cha at the bottom of Symonds St. The best in Auckland, by far.
* Brendhan Lovegrove hosts the Comedy Christmas Gala at Auckland's SkyCity Theatre on December 4 and 5. From December 9 he hits the road with six others taking in Hawkes Bay, New Plymouth, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
