You spend your childhood being told what to do. "Get up, go to school" Then "Get up, go to college" and maybe you'll make it to "Get up, you're off to university"
You're in education from 5 years old all the way to 21-23 even and all that time you just repeat what others have told you in order to pass a test or complete a piece of coursework, enabling you to proceed to the next level in the education game.
Then when all that education is done you are out in the "real" world. Fendi...Read Full Post »

We are all human beings, every single one of us. We all shit and wipe our arses, we've all put another person's genitals in our mouth and we all have the same thing programmed into our brains "I'm Special". If we didn't we wouldn't survive.
The internet, tv talent competitions and the rise of talentless celebrities has done nothing but feed this "i'm special" part of our brains and now every one of us feels arrogantly entitled to success, love and happiness. Sadly though this planet is...Read Full Post »

Lots of comedians will start their set with where they are from and then proceed to spend a bit of time telling the audience how shit it is there.
In my experience I couldn't do that, It just wouldn't be honest, i fucking love Portsmouth. Yes it's a bit run down and there's no prospects for anyone living there BUT it's home. It hasn't REALLY been home for 4 years but living in London doesn't seem warm and cosy enough yet to call it HOME
At least in Portsmouth people don't hav...Read Full Post »

I got a msg the other day from an old friend who has recently got married. They said "Yeah I'm married now, it's weird, it's so grown up!" no it isn't. Getting married or having a baby has nothing to do with "growing up" it's not the next stage in life for EVERYONE, regardless of what the majority of the british public seem to think.
Back in Portsmouth where I grew up, the "norm" is to have a mortgage, get married and have at least 1 baby before the age of 28 and then spend the rest of...Read Full Post »

Growing up I LOVED comedy, I would watch hours of Frank Skinner, Jo Brand, Whose Line is it Anyway. Fist of Fun and even Joe Pasquale. I loved it all, I would stay up late on a friday night to watch Cheers, Friends and Frasier after I had watched Father Ted, Big Train, League of Gentlemen or Brass Eye. This is a tiny portion of the comedy I had access to growing up and maybe I'm just getting old but dear god it was good, well written, superbly performed and rehearsed. Nowadays I can barely si...Read Full Post »

I've been watching some odd porn lately. Not odd in a Jim Davidson way but I can't stop watching film parody porn. Captain America, Batman and even Scooby Doo lends itself very well to porn and there's something about watching Batman have sex with a female Robin in full costume that's a little sexy.
Yes it's weird but It got me thinking about other things you could turn into porn such as classic novels. Imagine if there was a porn franchise called "Charles Dick-In" with such films as "F...Read Full Post »

A miserable man walked down the street, when recieving a smile he looked at his feet
"I don't care about others" he said without a faulter, "Not your mother, your father or even your daughter"
Grumbling to himself he walked off in a huff, then bought some milk and some belly button fluff
Carrying his bags he rushed on home, to lock the door and sit on his own
Inside was lovely, lonely and warm, he pulled down his pants and looked at his porn
"Oh yes" he screamed ...Read Full Post »

Not a day goes by that I'm not somehow involved or witnessing someone just trying to be funny and getting scorned for it. The act of "trying to make people laugh" is not a crime as far as I know but a lot of people seem to be being persecuted for it.
In comedy, I do what I find funny. I have carried on with stand up because I have done well at many gigs and so obviously there is a market for what I find funny. I've also done badly and shows me that my style isn't for everyone, tha...Read Full Post »

I can't stand women, not the real women that live day to day in the real world but the women I am forced to watch every day in advertising.
When watching tv, a break will always consist of at least one ad aimed soley at women, i.e make up, perfume and tena lady. These advert's are the ones I find most annoying, partly because I am a man grrr but mainly because of the idiotic way women are portrayed.
In some female orientated adverts you will see a woman walking along smiling and...Read Full Post »

As well as being a mutli award winning comedian and bullshitter I also work at the Natural History Museum in London. Before you start slipping off the seat ladies, I just sell guide books, but it's good money and hours and I get to do my comedy in the evening, so LAY OFF ME!
It's a fantastic place to work, with a huge dinosaur skeleton taking centre stage in the grand hall to which some religious types (or 'Idiots') have proclaimed 'so THIS is what Dinosaurs would have looked like if th...Read Full Post »
