Monkey Is Back. Loads of Money Tonight

After one whole month of listening to the screeching egos, the Brass Monkey is back in regular business as the said egos have departed for London.

Meanwhile, the Joker offers its largest pot in a wee while. Catch one. Catch both!

7pm – The Joker And The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat answer: Andy Roddick is in the picture round.

9pm – The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot £150. Cheat: One of the music round hits is by Marti Pellow, the man who would have been famous for putting Clydebank on the map, if Clydebank wasn’t already famous for shipbuilding and blitzes and sewing machine factories. See video below:

I’ve seen women screaming for Marti Pellow in real life. It didn’t make me hate him. It made me respect his work.

Celebrate The End of The Fringe By Winning Money

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £150. Cheat: There is a Yew in the answers for the picture round.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat: The music round contains Wet Wet Wet. See video that follows.

Geez. That’s thirty years ago. I saw Pellow once playing the lawyer in a production of ‘Chicago‘ at the Kings in Glasgow. I always hated Wet Wet Wet and wasn’t much looking forward to the Pellow.

But he was brilliant.

Fair play to the Clydebank-reared superstar.
