Sorry Ma’am

Hey Dad, it’s me, have you got a minute? The first draft of the book I am writing about you is done and for the past couple of months Keith and I have been frantically editing it The chapter we are looking at again right now is one tentatively called Warners2Warners and it’s all about me which makes it so …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian December 14th 2020

I assumed I would be fielding so many comments, replies, tweets, emails and calls that I would never have the time to write another entry for my Diary of a Locked Down Comedian. It turns out no one cared, oh, no, Keith cared. One person. Many writers would quit, give up, if no one was reading what you slaved over …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 28

December 2nd 2020 Today is the last day of lock down number two and I find myself in the rare position of having finished something I started again, no mean feat for an Adams. Dad and I are notorious for coming up with ideas, good ideas and then we would just let them dwindle away to a mere afterthought. Not …

Diary of A Locked Down Comedian Day 27

December 1st 2020 One more day of lockdown so this is the penultimate entry for the Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian. So successful was this venture that I may just keep it going, maybe not daily, perhaps not even weekly and if I am being honest monthly sounds like a deadline I would struggle to hit, so I am …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 26

November 30th 2020 There are two days left of this lockdown, I didn’t like the use of the word ‘this’ just then, it suggests another is imminent. Lockdown II has seen me write this diary every day, OK! Fine, I missed one the other Saturday, stop going on about that already. I love typing with no plan of where it …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 25

November 29th 2020 This is my diary so it should really be about me, my day, my thoughts, I should use this diary to promote a show of mine, to show off a little but none of that is really me. Sure, I am a comedian, have been for three decades, I am good but there are so many better …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 24

November 28th 2020 The last thing I want to do is create worry like I did last Saturday when I neglected to write an entry for this diary, so I am here now, at my desk just to let you know that there won’t be anything here today other than these 124 words. Of course I know it is 124 …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 23

November 27th 2020 I woke up this morning and headed to my faithful Nespresso machine and, unable to decide I made myself both a Flat White and a Macchiato. Two of my favourite coffees using their Napoli pod. It is the strongest coffee they make, describing it as thick bodied with a pleasant bitter after taste. I’d say that was …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 22

November 26th 2020 Today I am reading another chapter from the book about Dad, this particular one has the working title ‘Teamwork’ I talk about a lot of the things we did together, not really the normal father-son activities. There is no mention of football or any other sport, we would go to the movies a lot, especially when the …

Diary Of A Locked Down Comedian Day 21

November 25th 2020 I didn’t feel like writing this today, I’ve not felt one hundred percent, and I have a headache that just won’t go away. But at the back of my mind is something Dad told me years ago. We are professionals and professionals get up and work every day. So here I am. Professionals also get paid so …
