Having started in comedy as a fresh-faced 59 year old, I’m now a fat 65 year old man (thereby fulfilling your diversity commitments on size-ism and ageism!) and have done 200+ gigs.
My set is heavily gag-laden and based (loosely) around my life experiences with a bit of darkness thrown in.
I’ve done the usual gigs in pubs, clubs, attics – the waiting room of a disused bus station being the “highlight”.
As well as running my own comedy clubs in Dorset, I’ve appeared in shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and worked alongside Angela Barnes, Ian Cognito, Dane Baptiste, Danny Buckler and many other talented professionals. I’ve performed for Mirth Control, Oi Oi Comedy and many other independent comedy clubs and several “Arts Centre” type venues.
I’ll travel anywhere for a good audience and the right opportunity.
