Is apparently back for a new series and a movie! COME ON!


A quick plug here for a new comedy night run by good people I’ve met on the circuit over the last few months. Launching tonight, Wisecrack Comedy is a new act night in King’s Cross, run by Sahar Mirhadi and Lucy Jagger. It’s a chance for newbies to have a go at stand-up for the […]


This is me trying out some new material at the Cavendish Arms in Stockwell a couple of months ago. I’m still pretty new to it all, so I’d love to hear any thoughts. Cheers folks! P.S. The Cavendish Arms is awesome. Great place to perform and watch comedy.


Now with added Lionel Richie: Via the ever-lovely Sarah Pearce. For more flyer greatness check out these beauties.


The BBC’s Dickensian radio spoof Bleak Expectations is being adapted for television, according to the Guardian and others. Obviously this is great news for a fantastic writer and a talented cast, but I’ve got mixed feelings about it – I love Bleak Expectations; it’s one of the funniest shows around – but like Hamish and […]

We’ll be featuring some comedians from the LSE comedy night, Mavericks, and you can listen live here. (It’s also […]


…is Airplane! On joke-count alone it kicks every other movie right in penis, and the jokes themselves are amazing. I’ve laughed at the drinking problem one for – I’m not kidding – years. And everything Lloyd Bridges says is pure gold. It’s a movie that doesn’t get old on re-watching either, ‘cos there are bound […]


A New Hope…

So in the spirit of Buck-U-Uppo, I will blog every weekday until December; sort of an experiment to see how I feel about […]
