On the subject of writing stuff and being funny

Update: there’s been a change of venue for the Sunday night stand-up comedy show.  I’m just awaiting final confirmation and will update the details ASAP.

I’ve been a bit quiet as of late due to a couple of reasons.  Firstly, I’ve been writing an article for a new magazine that my pals Jon Bounds and Danny Smith will be launching soon.  There’ll be more about that in due course, I imagine.

Secondly, I’ve been attending a weekly stand-up comedy workshop and in a couple of weeks time will be doing my first live gig in front of an audience alongside fellow workshop graduates.  This is a big deal for me, and I’m rather excited and petrified by it all.

Details are as follows:

‘New Faces of Comedy’ event,  Sunday 11th April 2010

The Victoria

48 John Bright Street


B1 1BN

Doors 7pm, Start 7.30pm

Tickets £5

Please pop along if you can.  You’ll either get to see my long-awaited moment of glory or witness me fall on my arse catastrophically.  Not bad for a fiver, then.

I won’t have much time over the next couple of weeks for any fresh bloggage, but what I plan to do is have a trawl through my archives and post up some old articles and stuff that isn’t currently on the Internet.

Normal service will resume as soon as possible.

    After years of honing your material on the pub crowd, good to see you’re finally presenting it to an unsuspecting public.

    All the best with this mate. I will be cheering you on in spirit, if not actually in person.
