So the new series of Dilemma starts on 6th April at 6.30pm on Radio 4. Yes, it is a Monday. Yes, that is the slot usually preserved for sexy old duffer panel shows. Well done Team Dilemma. We’ve got some really excellent guests on this series including Jessica Hynes, Matthew Parris, Michael Legge (you might know of him) and Sarah Millican. And loads more.
Ultra talented photographer and comedy good egg Idil Sukan has a free exhibition on at Embassy Tea Rooms in Southwark. It’s a collection of photos of comedians she’s taken over the past seven years. If you like Bridget Christie you especially love it as there are loads of her. My favourites are Tim Vine as Plastic Elvis, Katherine Ryan (who looks fucking incredible – just like in real life) and Shirley and Shirley. You can buy them if you want a big picture of a comedian on your living room wall.
Oh and if you’re a Karaoke Circus fan there are live shots of Tim Vine, Phil Jupitus, Danny John Jules (the CAT!!!) Isy Suttie & some dick who plays the bass guitar. And your are KC badges for sale as Idil did the design for those.
Here are details.
I should clearly have put this up earlier, but yesterday I made an appearance on Hoxton FM to do some Dani F songs. But the interview as myself. Yes. I am a chameleon. It’s probably listenable againable.
Tickets for the new series of Do The Right Thing have gone on sale. We’re doing 5 shows between now and August and I expect that’ll be it for the whole year. Also I’m pretty sure I can’t make one of them, so who the hell is going to host is anyone’s guess. Love you bye.
Woo. Myself & Martin White are doing some very exciting musical comedy nights at the Old Queen’s Head in Islington in the new year. The first half of each show will be fab musical comedians and non musical weirdos, and the second half will be us work-shopping our next musical (working title WW3). and there will be a haus band ‘The People of Gotham’. It’s going to be a cross between Karaoke Circus, ACMS and our silly musicals. Dates are 5th Jan, 2nd March and 4th May. (NB Martin will be in Berlin for the first one so there won’t be any musical theatre. But there will be all new Dani Frankenstein songs).
UPDATE: We’ve had to move it to 14th Jan BUT this means we will be debuting stuff from WW3 (the third musical in our trilogy of stupid musicals)
I’m performing ‘Dani Frankenstein: Shut Up & Dance’ at the VAULT Festival in the Waterloo Tunnels, 18th – 22nd Feb. It’ll be some stuff from last years Edinburgh show and some new songs. Tickets available now.
