Here are a couple of new clips, about online dating and Corona virus, filmed while I performed at the ‘New Stuff’ night at the Manchester Comedy Store, Sunday 8th March 2020. If you enjoy, please like the videos on Youtube, and subscribe to my channel :-)
The problem with online dating:
I was saying just yesterday that everything was going suspiciously well. Good health, good numbers in my shows every day, all good.
Well, I only went ahead and achieved what I thought was going to happen at some point – a slump! Continue reading
I’ve decided to experiment with a more traditional diary type of blog.
Along with other longer form posts, I will use this diary to review the previous week, taking in to account key experiences along with what I have been reading, watching, and what things have caught my interest in the news.
I recently had a showreel filmed at a night at the excellent Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool.
In the last year they have renovated and created their own space and the room they have created is perfect for performing in. If you live over in Liverpool I highly recommend giving them a visit.
Last weekend I traveled down south with my fiance for our Dorset stag and hen do’s.
I was born and brought up in Poole, Dorset. I moved up to the Manchester area to go to Salford University in 2001, and have lived up here ever since.
