Thank You, Swansea!
I've just back from a weekend in Swansea for the second annual Dr. Penny's Cabinet Of Curiosities Festival, which I've posted about here before. Like last year, it was a huge success that proves that Swansea is a town with an amazingly supportive and lovely comedy community who are really welcoming of new ideas and early previews of brand new shows. Every show had a lovely busy audience and the festival as a whole was even busier than last year, so a massive thank you to Penny Matthews for having us. Congratulations also to the comics I saw, who presented shows which are going to be amazing as they develop over the course of 2017 - Adam Larter, Northern Power Blouse, Lucy Pearman, Eleanor Morton, Ben Target and Michael Brunstom. I was really pleased with my own very first full preview of Look At Me, Don't Look At Me - it needs work and attention and focus, but all the ideas feel exciting and original and really fun to explore onstage, and I can't wait to continue working on it and previewing it. Apologies also to the comedians performing on the festival's second day today, who I didn't get to see - Phil Jarvis, Marny Godden and Ali Brice among them, all of whom will have been brilliant. Thanks again to Penny, and I hope very much to come back to Swansea again soon for another fun show. You can read a piece about the festival in the South Wales Evening Post here.
