Stuff that's happened
Had a blast chatting to my old pal Des Burkinshaw on Soho Radio's 'Museum of Soho' about my recollections of Soho. To be honest most of my time in Soho was in pubs so my recollections might be a bit hazy. We talk about the first little comedy club I ran at The Intrepid Fox Pub, my stag-do, and my favourite shop, the game shop 'Orcs Nest'. Originally broadcast March 2022 on Soho Radio, but click the link for a listen.
Great fun guesting on Gav Smith's fab podcast 'My Favourite Film' talking about my fave film, 'When Harry Met Sally'. One for the film geeks, as the podcast probably runs longer than the actual film. But, hey... what a film. And I'll have what she's havin'.
Great fun guesting on Keith Farnan's wonderful show 'Sideways' about my time in the army, working with the homeless and my stand-up comedy 'career'. Originally broadcast on Why Now Radio, but click the link to have a listen.

So proud of the team at Camden Health Improvement Practice who won the London Homelessness Award 2022, and were Highly Commended in the BMJ Awards 2022 for their work providing healthcare to people experiencing homelessness in Camden.
Click on the link below to see a little film about some of the GP Outreach work that they do which has increased the life expectancy of their homeless patients from 47yrs up to over 50yrs of age at a time when, nationally, the average life expectancy of homeless people dropped from 47yrs down to 44yrs.
Great fun guesting on River Radio's comedy panel show with the very funny Brian Naylor, Chloe Sinclair and Pratik Barman.
Great fun guesting on Ariane Sherine's podcast 'Love, Sex, Intelligence' (season 1, Ep 10). Chatting about all things gynaecological. (18 plus audience).
Great fun guesting on Rhod Gilbert's podcast 'Froth' (Ep 21). Chatting about things getting stuck up peoples noses and other high-brow shenanigans.

I feel very privileged to have been asked to write and direct "White Boi", the stage version of the true story of a remarkable young man who escaped gang-involvement.
