Radio & New Zealand

I hope you’re well.

Just a heads up on a few things.

I’m a guest on a recording of the wonderful Victoria Coren-Mitchell’s Heresy that’s recording on March 14th. I’m not sure the other guests yet or whether I’ll be on the early or late recording. The last time I saw Victoria, I won £5 off her in a bet. Which considering she’s a professional poker player, I’m putting down as a major life achievement.

I’m previewing a new show around the UK too. It’s still a work-in-progress and still a bit too naughty but I’m enjoying it. Here’s the link for my Glasgow Comedy Festival appearance on March 20th. And also here’s a cool interview I did with Queen/Ale/Snooker/E-cigarette enthusiast and stone cold top bloke, John Robins to publicise our shows. I recently spent two days with him in Leicester and it made me jealous of Sara Pascoe and her unfettered access to him.

I’m also performing in the New Zealand Comedy festival and subsequent Convoy tour around the country. Which I’m excited about, as it’s a fucking ace place. Here is a link for my Auckland dates and here is a link for my Wellington ones.

I’ll keep my gigs updated. I think I’m doing some work in progress stuff with Jon Richardson soon but that’s not confirmed yet.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

 

 

Buskers Festival & GIT

 

gitty's-angels-proof

 

Hello there,

I hope you’re well.

I’m not gigging that much at the moment as I’m writing on Russell Howard’s Good News for BBC2. But I have got a few things in, you can check the gigs section.

Myself, Jon Richardson and Dan Atkinson are putting on another Git show, in London on December 12th. Expect a sort of topical sprawling shambles. Please don’t expect even a modicum of polish. Some ticket details here.

Also, I’m very happy to be performing a the Christchurch International Buskers Festival in January. Details about that can be found here.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

Panel Shows

 

Hello there,

I’m now in Wellington and in the past few days the city has experienced both flooding and a mini earthquake. I guess God hates hipsters.

Some panel show news.

I’m a guest on the TV show “Best Bits” recording on Tuesday 19th May. So if you’re in New Zealand, you can see that. Or maybe it’ll be on YouTube at some point.

On the 21st May at 6.30pm on Radio 4 I’m a guest on Holly Walsh’s Best Behaviour. It was a lot of fun to record. It’s Holly, myself, Richard Herring and Helen Zaltzman.

Lastly, Rhod Gilbert is doing some live panel show mash up things. Taking different rounds from different British panel shows. It sounds like a fucking shambles but it’s all for charity and there are great people involved so I think it’ll be a really fun shambles. The lineups are yet to be announced but I don’t give a shit about all that nonsense so I can tell you I’m doing the one on July 2nd. I’m pretty certain Jon Richardson is doing that one too. And tons of other cool people as well. Looking back at the e-mail, also on is Roisin Conaty, Elis James, John Robins, Nick Helm and Angela Barnes. But it’s a secret. Don’t tell anyone. I mean, these lineups are always subject to change but even with a couple of substitutes that’s a pretty fun bunch of people isn’t it? Maybe I’ll see you there.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

 

 

 

 

Auckland & HBD

 

Hello there,

I’m having fun in Auckland. The gigs are good fun and I’m staying opposite Real Groovy, one of the best music shops I’ve ever been to.

I’ve also got a quote for my next tour:

“Lloyd Langford is from Wales but lives in an incredible and sometimes frightening world of sexual experimentation.” Metro New Zealand

Just a quick message that the second series of Here Be Dragons starts on Radio Wales this Saturday May 9th. I also believe that the first three episodes will be up on iplayer. And if the Conservatives remain in power, you’ll need something to cheer you up.

Thanks,

Lloyd

Norway/New Zealand/Australia

Aye up,

I’m not doing a solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, my first year off from doing anything there since 2007. And even that year I came up, did a few gigs and listlessly hung about like a sort of bipedal Greyfriar’s Bobby.

That said, I am excited to be gigging in Norway, appearing at the New Zealand Comedy Festival and also as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. It means I’ll be away for a couple of months from mid April. Can one of you mow my lawn?

New Zealand solo show info here

Australia Roadshow info here

Before then, I’m co-hosting Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Wales radio show on 11th April, doing what looks to be a really fun gig in Folkestone on 12th April and I’ve got a few other bits and bobs in. But not much. I’ve just done a national tour and fancy a few weeks just sitting around in my pants.

Cheers,

Lloyd

Hello

 

Hello there,

Hope you’re well.

A few bits of news from me.

My tour starts end of January, I’m pretty excited, the dates can be found on the front of this site.

I’m recording a second series of Here Be Dragons (a BBC Radio Wales sketch show) on January 21st, 28th and February 4th at Up The Creek in Greenwich. More information can be found here and you can get tickets here, if you click on current shows, find “Here Be Dragons” and fill out the form. It stars the cream of Welsh comedy talent including the bloke from the Go Compare adverts, Naughty Norman from Fireman Sam and Shirley Bassey.

I’m recording two episodes of The Unbelievable Truth on February 11th at the Shaw Theatre in Euston. I’m not sure how you get tickets for that, as nothing’s coming up on the BBC site at the moment.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

 

Buzzcocks Christmas Special

Hello there,

I’m a guest on the Buzzcocks Christmas special. It goes out on December 22nd.

Though the only photo I have of the recording features Aled Jones, Roy Wood and Yoko Ono. It was taken by Phill Jupitus.

Cheers,

Lloyd

Unbelievable Truth/NMTB

Hello there,

Post Edinburgh fringe, and I’m a bit exhausted.

A few things coming up:

I’m a guest on The Unbelievable Truth, recording in London on September 24th. It’s always a lot of fun so I’m looking forward to that.

I’m also writing for Rhod Gilbert on the next series of Never Mind The Buzzcocks, which means I’ll be gigging a bit less this Autumn/Winter.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

Quite Interesting

I recorded an episode of Q.I this week which was a lot of fun.

Alan Davies made a brilliant joke about ants that was a particular highlight.

It goes out in the Autumn, I think.

Cheers,

Lloyd
