Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 9

November 13th 2020 I had a great call yesterday with Kristian Grey, not that one. When I found out that the Grey part of Krisitans’ name was in fact a stage name I felt obliged to point out that a better known, and frankly, better looking Christian Grey was already on peoples radar but he was quick to tell me …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 8

November 12th 2020 My day started in the usual way, a couple of coffees, switching on the Chris Moyles Breakfast Show on Radio X, compiling todays to-do list and planning a bike ride for later. Oh, and I have already recorded the one minute video clip that apparently will help persuade people that reading The Diary Of A Locked Down …

Diary of a Locked Down Comedian Day 7

November 11th 2020 As I finished off yesterdays entry into this diary I realised, with some embarrassment, that I am still reading Diary Of A Bookseller. This has taken me six days so far and I am not even halfway through it. Shaun Bythell has a style I enjoy immensely, he is witty and clearly smart and we share a …

Diary of a Locked Down Comedian Day 6

November 10th 2020 I used to run a monthly comedy show at the White Hart pub in Eltham. It was the show I was arguably most proud of throughout my career.

Diary of a Locked Down Comedian Day 3

November 7th 2020 Up early for a long ride, I took up cycling in early July thanks to my oldest mate Lew, he gave me one of his old bike and I fell in love with her. I try to ride most days, that hour or so, and more often than not it has become hours, on my own, with …

MAGIC BEADS!

A Note To Dad. September 2017 I was lucky enough to see Lucy in her recent ballet show, I say lucky because I almost didn’t make it. I went with Mum and as we took our seats a wave of nerves flowed over me like no amount of nerves I had ever felt before. Noticing a difference in me mum …

Diary of a Locked Down Comedian Day 2

November 6th 2020 It is day two of lockdown and I am pleasantly surprised to find myself at my desk already writing today’s entry for the Dairy Of A Locked Down Comedian. I am also incredibly surprised if not a little ashamed to find myself constantly checking Instagram to see who has liked my post. Thirty-one so far, THIRTY-ONE. Me? …

Diary of a Locked Down Comedian Day 1

November 5th 2020 Day one of lockdown II and I am off to a flyer with my new idea, Diary of A Locked Down Comedian. Hopefully you have seen my one minute video clip on Instagram, or Twitter and found your way here. I am new to this online stuff but the fact I have even considered posting regularly should …
