Hello. The short film I was in ‘Stages’ has completed its fairly extensive run of the festival circuit and has been put out to pasture on Vimeo. You can watch it if you like.
I’ve been asked to do the Resonance benefit gig at Leicester Square Theatre on 19th February. I assume because I own vinyl records. Also on are male comedians Stewart Lee, Tony Law and Lewis Schaffer. Daniel Kitson is MCing. I KNOW. It’s all sold out (natch) but some tickets might pop up on the day.
Did you have a nice one? I watched Iron Man 3 and was in bed by 11.30pm. Rock and Roll.
I’ve added some gigs to my gigs page including doing Seventeen for the last time on 10th Feb at the Leicester Comedy Festival and I’ll be doing a talk with Sarah Millican for Standard Issue also at LCF the day after on 11th. I’m staying with my nan in Nottingham FYI fact fans. Plus I’m closing for Abi Burdess, XS Malarky and Wimbourne comedy club in the next few weeks.
No word yet on Do The Right Thing posh telly pilot. It was great fun. Claudia Winkleman was brilliant. I’d had no sleep. Good times.
I will get my newsletter out soon. So much work. So little time. Such a terrible bout of Norovirus before Christmas.
I should have probably put this up sooner, but yes – Do The Right Thing has a TV pilot. Tickets went instantly but details of how you can win a pair of places on the VIP guestlist will be in the November edition of my newsletter when that comes out at the weekend. Sign up for it here.
We’re filming at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden on 9th November. Michael & Margaret are team captains, I’ll be doing some sort of co-host/scores/scenarios shtick and we’ve got a BIG NAME PERSON to host. Also the panelists (FOUR STRAIGHT WHITE MEN… ha ha. As if) are brilliant too. All in all it’s going to be amazing. I can hear A****w L******e hate wanking over it already.
On God’s very own Sunday 4th Sept 2016, myself, Chris Coltrane and Stuart Laws will be filming our fringe shows at the Phoenix in Cavendish Square in London. Please do come along. It’s like a mini comedy festival and absolutely free although obvs we will beg for money afterwards. But if you don’t have any money, come anyway and maybe pop a hand-drawn postcard or knitted Rimmer from Red Dwarf (my nan once made me one of these – no idea what happened to it) in the bucket. You will need a ticket though which can be not bought from here. No idea what the fellas are doing with their videos but mine will more than likely be available as a ‘download only’ near Christmas. Buy the woman you love a download code and see her face light up on Xmas morning as she stares at the screen of an iPad.
Hello. Here’s a little update. So Seventeen at The Caves is going well. Although no one has bought a VIP ticket yet. It’s fine. I will be selling the VIP goody bags afterwards to help pay for the fringe debt (there will be a debt) so it’s like crowdfunding only after the event rather than before.
Also Dani Frankenstein Returns has become a bit different. I had planned to do last years show with some new bits – as I’m back in the Voodoo Rooms – but as I’m not listed in the main guide and my rooms is the lovely but not very showbiz French Quarter and I’m on just after midday, I found myself attracting a very ‘un-sexy hip hop’- audience. Old ladies we’re nearly fainting, Scottish men were shouting at me. So instead of ruining everyone’s day the show is now Dani Frankenstein’s Spookywooky Cocktail Hour (40 mins). It’s a jazz Tales of the Unexpected. Three stories that I have written, read out to a jazz soundtrack. It’s a very chilled start to your fringe day. Low-key laidback sexy jazz brunch. Please come now I know what it is. THANKS
The short film I made last year is now on the Comedy Central website. Watch it if you fancy. I had to kiss the man who gets eaten by a bear in the Betway advert.
