Hello! Welcome aboard! Take a seat! Buy a bloody ticket or clear off! I know where you live!

That the now primarily web-based Time Out then shared my despair at the end of the essentially analogue bus is an irony we can all enjoy.

This is from The Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow, not unreasonably indistinct in the minds of most viewers from the Apollo show.

Other clips are available for viewing on You Tube, though to be honest I’ve picked out the best of ‘em.
And below are some recent reviews, the first being of my current tour show, Friendly Fire.

There will inevitably be some sort of “transaction fee” involved, I can only apologise, […]

Oh the rush of excitement when the website is first designed! Oh, the things we’ll do, the fun we’ll have! The posts we’ll post, the feeds we’ll […]

Friendly Fire – Chortle Review

Edwardian London. A Pall Mall gentleman’s club. An erudite, elegantly dressed man in a Harris tweed sits in his sumptuous leather armchair, takes a swig from his 25-year-old single malt and continues his treatise on the scourge of the lower classes…
