Radio Academy comedy event

A few weeks ago, I took part in a Radio Academy panel about radio comedy. They’ve just released the audio, so if you’re interested in what Jon Holmes (host of the Xfm breakfast show, regular on R4’s The Now Show), Gareth Gwynn (presenter on BBC Radio Wales, writer on myriad radio shows), Colin Anderson (producer of Radio 4 comedy, Pappy’s Bangers and Mash, International Waters), Ben Walker (producer of radio comedy and numerous podcasts including Pappy’s Flatshare Slamdown and Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast) and I have to say on the subject, click here.

impending live events

Next week I shall be leaving the house TWICE to participate in live events. Yes! Assuming I can remember where the front door is.

On Wednesday 25th September, I’ll be taking part in a Radio Academy event all about making audio comedy. It’s at the Phoenix on Cavendish Square in central London and will also feature comedy writer-presenters Gareth Gwynn and Jon Holmes, and radio and podcast producers Colin Anderson and Ben Walker. For more information and tickets, CLICK HERE.

Then on Thursday 26th September, I’ll pop up in Brighton at Jo Neary and Friends at the Caroline of Brunswick on Ditchling St, a hop and a step from Brighton railway station. I’ll be presenting a slideshow about my collection of sexist, racist mid-20th century cookbooks. Of course you need to see this, especially as tickets are only £3. CLICK HERE for details of the gig.
[UPDATE: alas I can no longer do the gig. But there’s a terrific line-up so you won’t miss me at all.]

Another event I did in late August, the live recording of Jordan Jesse Go!, is now available as a podcast HERE.
