The script’s in place, we’ve got Stephen Murphy (Line of Duty/Vera/The Favorite) attached as DoP and

I wrote this article for Chortle. Ironically, it won their correspondent’s prize – it’s about why everything’s going wrong for comedy criticism. Let me know if you like it, and maybe I’ll write some more stuff like this! http://www.chortle.co.uk/correspondents/2014/09/29/21022/comedy_criticism%3A_where_did_it_all_go_wrong Back to doing the second draft of my screenplay!

After an absence of 8 years, I’m returning to the Edinburgh festival with a brand new stand up show.  It’s not a “best of”, so unless you’ve watched me over the last 4 months you won’t have seen any of it before.  Exciting huh? It’s different to my old stuff.  Over the last 6 months
