I recorded another episode of crazyfun podcast International Waters in August while in Los Angeles. It’s much harder to be a smutty English woman when very lovely Americans can see your face. It’s on the Maximum Fun website now, or on iTunes, or other places probably. Welsh Iraqi Nadia Kamil was my team mate as she was also there.
I’m doing a few live things this autumn, and then next year I will be back working on two projects. WW3 with Martin White, and a full Dani Frankenstein show. However, until then I’ll be doing something at Robin Ince’s Dead Funny night at the Bloomsbury on 2nd Nov. Not sure what yet, probably a short play. I’m also doing two things All Day Edinburgh at the Phoenix on 9th Nov; a short Dani Frankenstein set and a short Xmas Special of Do The Right Thing. Bonus.
I’ve written a short horror story for anthology book Dead Funny (Salt Publishing). All the stories are written by comics/comedy writers/funny actors/hilarious pets etc, including people like Tim Key, Jeremy Dyson, Sara Pascoe and Reece Shearsmith. I know. What bloody excellent collection of people. My story is about a woman called Nerys Bag who thinks she is going to die. To find out if she does or not you’ll need to buy a copy.
I’ll also be doing Shut Up & Dance at the Voodoo Rooms Speakeasy 2.25pm on 12th August.
Here are some shows I’m planning on seeing at the Fringe because I think they’ll be proper good.
Sara Pascoe: 8.15pm, Assembly George Square
Ray Peacock: 9.25pm Underbelly Bristo Square
Bridget Christie: 11.10am The Stand
Sarah Kendall: 9.30pm Pleasance Courtyard
Tom Neenan: 4.15pm Pleasance Courtyard
Ed Gamble: 9.45pm Pleasance Courtyard.
Chef: 6.10pm Underbelly
Pascoe, Christie and Kendall are probably my three favourite stand-ups at the moment. All very funny, clever and excellent comics. I always go and see Peacock & Gamble, let’s hope they’re not rubbish solo (they’re not), Tom Neenan’s show sounds really fun and my friend Jade Anouka is in Chef and she’s brilliant.
