This Week's New Thing is an experiment to try and use the Current Circumstances, and the Available Technology, to tell a story. I quite like it. Sadder than it is funny, but maybe that's a good reflection of where we're all at two weeks in. Also, I'm gonna defend it by...

The first online version of John-Luke Roberts' stupid concept show Terrible Wonderful Adaptations will be launching tonight on the Cosmic Shambles Network as part of the Stay At Home Festival at 8:30pm, and you can watch it here! I THINK this link will work both for th...

Last night Ellen Waddell's comedy fan-fiction night Dear Harry/Spock did a livestream of comedians reading out their original fan fiction, and it raised over £500 for food bank charity Sufra's emergency coronavirus appeal! Amazing stuff, well done to all the acts invol...

This won't be news for anybody reading, but the Edinburgh Fringe has been cancelled. I thought I'd post some thoughts on that, in case anybody's interested (if you're reading this then I guess you are!) And if you are a bit out of the loop, you can read the full statem...

One of the few nice things emerging from this whole mess is the absolute glut of creativity it's prompted from the independent comedy scene. I know I've been churning out a bunch of new things this week, but that's nothing compared to the overwhelming amount of fun, im...

"These strange times" have caused me to have an even more odd relationship than usual with social media - simultaneously desperately wanting to use it as an opportunity to continue being creative and to stay connected to people, while also hating it and wanting to get...

March 25, 2020

I'm currently trying to get the right balance between being creative and making new things, versus just trying to make the most of this strange time by looking after myself and concentrating on little things that make me happy. As such, I'm not going to be livestreamin...

It's the explosive, nail-biting season finale of LadPad, the "flatshare sitcom"/load of nonsense from me, Ali Brice and Alex K Graham. All the dangling plot threads satisfactorily wrapped up. All the character arcs cleverly resolved. This week, Ali plays a mean prank o...
