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?

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

 

Sitcom

Hello,

I hope you’re well.

I’ve written a sitcom pilot for Radio 4 that’s being recorded at the Radio Theatre on June 8th. I’m equally nervous and excited.

It features me and Jon Richardson as two unemployed blokes, desperately trying to find  jobs, love and adequate pest control in London.

There are some brilliant other people in it too: Sinead Keenan, Tony Law, Martin Trenaman and Nina Wadia.

Here’s a link to the BBC audience tickets page.

It’s free.

Cheers,

Lloyd

 

Edinburgh Fringe 2014

news-old-fashioned
Hello there,

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.

Cheers,

Lloyd

Her Bra Den Egos

How do?

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.

Cheers,

Lloyd

*”acted” may be too strong a word. “Existed” might be better.
