Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 20

November 24th 2020 I made it! Late yesterday afternoon I had my induction for the upcoming position as Christmas Casual worker for the Royal Mail. I arrived at the depot some forty minutes early, a bit mad when you think it was only a mere seven minutes that I had to drive but I hate lateness and who knows what …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 19

November 23rd 2020 It is accounts day in Grizzly Offices today. I like numbers, I love basic maths so accounts don’t scare me, they bore me. This year they will frustrate me too as I add up what I made up until my April 2020 year end. But I will not dwell on that for long as I have a …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 18

November 22nd 2020 I missed writing this yesterday, I don’t mean ‘missed’ in the sense I forgot to write it, I simply mean, I missed it, I yearned, I pined, I ached, yes, of course I have a thesaurus, I don’t know all the words. At around nine-thirty in the evening I found myself thinking, I could write one and …

November 20th 2020 Congratulations on finding this entry, after giving you inaccurate instructions during my daily Vlog on Instagram I find myself incredibly impressed by your initiative. I’d have given up and too easily and gone for a coffee. I may have stumbled upon something to help me cover some of my monthly outgoings. As a comedian you don’t need …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 15

November 19th 2020 I am enjoying shots seven and eight of espresso as I type away here. Some will be aghast, wonder how I ever sleep, some brave soles may even suggest decaf and some, including for a time my doctor, will worry about my blood pressure. Worry not, I sleep well, decaf is never the answer and my blood …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 14

November 18th 2020 I spent a large part of my morning watching various videos sent to me by the Post Office. One video was eighteen minutes long, the first seventeen minutes and twenty seven seconds was all about the safe way to lift and move heavy things. That was followed by a twenty second review. I could have easily saved …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 13

November 17th 2020 Today started with a wander around the woods of Maidstone with Arthur, a crossbreed dog one of which is a Jack Russell the other escapes me.

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 11

November 15th 2020 It’s raining, absolutely pouring down there is no chance of getting out on my bike, perhaps a walk with Alec later. I found myself sitting in my Dads’ old office watching random YouTube clips. Something Dad and I would have loved to do together. It is seven years since he passed away and although YouTube was a …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 10

November 14th 2020 It’s Saturday and I am taking the day off from my writing my diary. I was up early, I always am, I hate the thought of wasting any day, aside from a sea day. We are currently enjoying another lockdown and although a cruise booking came in for 2022 from my agent, there is no real light …
