I am happy to be able to announce that I have won my heat of the BBC New Comedy Award 2014. One of the judges on the day was Jason Byrne and I was one of ten comedians in the heat. It was all very exciting as I didn’t expect to win it at all. I would just like to thank everyone who came to watch it on the day for being lovely and making it a pleasure to play.
Wish me luck for the semi final in November. If you missed the heat on the radio, you can listen again here.
My very first stand up show, ‘Voice Of Choice’, is now available to buy on DVD or as a digital download.
The hour long show, which got excellent reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, is on sale in my shop for £10/£5.
“An Edinburgh Fringe one-off. Think Stephen Hawking reading the BBC News in the 1950s via a device programmed by the writers of the Viz.”

Scope recently launched a national television campaign to get people talking about why they might feel “awkward” around disabled people.
With many amusing and not so amusing awkward moments under my belt, obviously I’m the ideal person to talk about this.
Read my BBC article about how the awkwardness goes both ways.
I am writing this blog post because I feel I must apologise to you all. It has been brought to my attention that some of you come to comedy gigs to see those traditional comedians who can actually speak.
Just so we are clear, I’m afraid that won’t be happening if you come to see me….unless any of you can perform miracles. And even if you could, I’d rather you didn’t try. That would really fuck up my career.
