What am i up to?

Fresh from the Edinburgh fringe festival, I'm now performing mainly new material in preparation of pulling together a new show. Eventually! You'll also find me curating and regularly hosting We Love Comedy, a pop up comedy shop bringing brilliant comedy to brilliant places. We are also bringing our ever-so-slightly acclaimed (by audience and critics!) Edinburgh show to the Kingston Comedy Festival, just because we can and love the characters dearly.
who am i?

A versatile comedian and curator of comedy, with love for the audience. A semi-finalist in 2010's So You Think You're Funny Competition. A shortlisted comedian in 2011 for the BBC New Comedy Awards. A finalist in the 2012 Piccadilly Comedy Club competition where Chortle reviewed him as "Happy", one of the more positive words used in that particular review. A regular performer and host of comedy shows all over. A hater of competitions, aside from spot the ball. A husband and three-legged dog owner.

Whoa. I haven't been on here for a while. How terrible of me. There's loads to talk about lot's to write, lots to say. I don't know why I've neglected you so. Think I just sometimes get scared to do the things I love. But I'm back on here and we'll start with a couple more of my favourite Edinburgh moments.

3... The final Late'n'Live

Picture
Patrick Monahan vs. John Bishop crowdsurfing? Check. Boy with tape on his face? Check. Brendan Burns introducing a whole host of comedians each doing a 90 second set for Abandoman to reinterpret – say wha-...!?!

4... Sip 'n' Snip

Picture
I've grown my hair. It's now pretty long. It's big hair. It's the longest hair I've ever had. In Edinburgh, on a recommendation from the lovely Bec Hill, I wandered into the haircutting chair of the beautiful Magda, a lady so gorgeous, down to earth and full of inspirational stories, I could barely believe it. Coupled with the hairwashing-headmassaging-hands of an angel and the genius idea of a shot of vodka (or two) instead of the usual cup of tea or coffee and you've got a dream come true. I walked in fed up with my lengthening hair, not knowing what I wanted. I walked out in an extremely good mood, with long locks, safe in the knowledge my next haircut would be 6 months after (and I'm tempted to pop back for a weekend for repeat custom!), but definitely, August 2011, you'll find me in there one afternoon, having a Snip and Snip. My only advice, if you're reading this and in Edinburgh, please book an appointment and pay them a visit. Check out their facebook group.
