So, with the first Scottish Falsetto Socks gig of the year under our belt (a cracking slot at the Lyric Rooms in Ashby De La Zouch which earned us a big colour photo in the Leicester Mercury) we look forward to a busy spring season, dominated by a 30-date run at the Adelaide Fringe.
The Leicester Mercury, the Socks' first press of 2012
Adelaide tickets have started selling well, with this particular example being a nice boost. There's a promotional scheme run by BankSA called Support Acts whereby they offer reduced price tickets for a number of shows by new acts (which we are in Australia) and sponsor the rest of the ticket cost. 115 shows are promoted on the scheme and, at time of writing, only 4 shows have sold out of their allocation. 4 shows, including...
Not too shabby. Though as advance sales go, we have to say The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen is taking the biscuit for best pre-sales ever. The show's not until April 27th but has already sold 45 tickets. I know it's hardly Michael McIntyre levels, but if we're perfectly honest that has out-sold a few shows we played in 2011 already.

Feb 9, 10 & ll Leicester Comedy Festival
