I’m doing a new stand up show at the 2014 Edinburgh fringe festival.
It’s called Old Fashioned, and it’s about being totally confused by the modern world.
You can buy tickets here
Here’s the poster. Thanks to Lewis at Tangerine, Andy Hollingworth and Grant Wood.
Here Be Dragons, a sketch show that I wrote for and acted* in, has been nominated for a Radio Academy Award (formerly Sony Award) in the “Best Comedy” category.
I’m pretty happy. Everyone involved in it is a bloody good egg and it was fun to write and make.
You can find out more about the awards, and the other nominees, here.
*”acted” may be too strong a word. “Existed” might be better.
Hope you’re well.
Got a few things coming up that you might be interested in.
On March 18th, I’ll be showing off some of my incredibly limited range when I take part in the BBC’s Salford Sitcom trials. It’s a revised version of Everyone Quite Likes Justin, which I did on the radio. It’s written by and starring the very funny Justin Moorhouse. More info here, I think.
I’m performing some stand up for Comedy Central’s Comedy Store Live programme on March 24th. It’ll be recorded at The Comedy Store in London. It’ll be a mix of stuff from the past few years.
The next night, I’m recording a couple of episodes of The Unbelievable Truth with the peerless David Mitchell. Last time I was on, I managed to tie for first place so I’m aiming for a solo victory this time. That’s recorded at The Shaw Theatre, in Euston.
That’s all for now,
I’m back from Scotland now.
I recorded an episode of The Unbelievable Truth up there which was good fun. It’s out Christmas time I think, and worth tuning into for Tom Wrigglesworth’s excellent duck anecdote.
I’m doing a gig with lots of famous people to raise money for The Labour Party. So if you fancy seeing Eddie Izzard, John Bishop, Jo Brand and Stephen K Amos then it’s at The Brighton Dome on Sunday 22nd September. Link here
I’m also recording a new radio sketch show called Here Be Dragons. Everyone in it is Welsh/has had sex with Tom Jones.
It features Elis James, Nadia Kamil, Cariad Lloyd, Sian Harries, Gareth Gwynn and Benjamin Partridge.
It’s being recorded at Up The Creek Greenwich on Oct 1st, 14th and 21st and I think the tickets are free. Here’s the bumpf from the official Facebook page:
“If you’d like to come along (please do!), tickets are free but need to be applied for in advance from SRO Audiences. Visit their website here: http://www.sroaudiences.com/, go to ‘Current Shows’ and you’ll find HERE BE DRAGONS there.”
Be there, or be somewhere else.
I’m doing an Edinburgh show at the Fringe from July 31st – August 26th. It’s about celebrating your inner idiot.

I have grown a beard. It’s a bit itchy but I quite like it.
I’ll be co-hosting Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Wales show on the following dates:
November 3rd, November 17th, December 1st and December 8th.
It’s on Saturday mornings at 11am-1pm but only fools and the Welsh listen to it live.
I believe most people download the podcast, misleadingly titled “Rhod Gilbert’s Best Bits”.
I’ll be co-hosting Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Radio Wales show for three episodes that coincide with the Edinburgh Fringe. The 11th, 18th & 25th of August. The webpage for the show is here
And my Edinburgh show tickets can be bought here.
I’ve got some radio things coming up, that I thought you might be interested in.
I’m on Rhod Gilbert’s radio show on Saturday 7th July. I think the podcast page is here.
We’re recording the second series of Justin Moorhouse’s and Jim Poyser’s wonderful sitcom “Everyone Quite Likes Justin” on the 8th, 15th and 16th of July in Manchester.
Lastly, I’m booked to be a guest on the excellent The Unbelievable Truth, hosted by polymath japester David Mitchell. That’s recording in Edinburgh during the Fringe on August 13th. It’s technically my day off, so if you come along, you better be nice.
I’m going to be performing some topical stand up on The Now Show on June 22nd. I’m not sure what the subject is as I haven’t written it yet. It’s exciting and scary in equal measure.
I’m also co-hosting/side-kicking/being general whipping boy on Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Radio Wales show on June 23rd (live from Leicester) and July 7th (live from London).
Last time I saw Rhod he was apoplectic with rage about an incident concerning a chocolate eclair. I’ll try and bring that up.
