The tawdry need for self-promotion awakens me from my six month blog slumber.I’m doing a new show at Edinburgh this year, called “Shout out to my Ex” which is attempting to be a feelgood look at acute heartbreak. I’ll be performing it at one of my alltime favourite comedy rooms, The Stand Comedy Club. Details here…..

What this means is that I am deep into preview season. This is my eighth solo show, and it never gets any easier. There are bits that really work, bits that never get any laughs, and bits that I dont know about because I always forget to deliver the material. It may sound ludicrously self-important to claim that it should be fascinating watching an established comedian performing way out of his/her comfort zone, but I believe it to be true. Please don’t expect it to be a finished product yet, and please dont expect it to be bland, clean and peppered with jokes about white suits.

I thought I only had twelve previews left. I have fifteen, and here they are.
