Posted by on Mar 20, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

So yesterday I published the analysis of my “Man Crush” twitter survey, and it became the most read blog that I’ve ever written.  Thanks for sharing it around, keep doing so! A few people have asked for the full breakdown of votes though, so here you go.  Of course, if you want to comment or discuss it then make sure to add me on Twitter and all that. Right then.  In descending order… Name Profession Nation Age Peak Status Votes David Beckham Footballer UK 38 Present Alive 34 Ryan...

The Great Straight Guy “Man Crush” Survey – The Full Results Are In!

About a month ago, I conducted a Twitter based experiment.  Thanks to it being retweeted by a few comics much, much more famous than me, it gathered steam and got seriously out of hand.  Luckily I like a spreadsheet and some hardcore analysis.  Originally, I was just working on some material based on an observation of mine and the good gentlemen of Twitter proved me right (thankfully) and gave me a lot of data to sift through. Basically, I have a theory. Well, I have many theories, but they’re often far too nuts to actually write down...

My Football Blog

Posted by on Jan 15, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Hello all, I did originally keep it here, but my little football project is now found at www.thefootballneutral.com. Go and have a read, tweet about it, subscribe to it and all that jazz. The basic principle is that I have to watch a game every week based around my comedy travels.  I can’t watch any Premier League games or my own team (Leicester City), can’t go to the same place twice and must always pay for my tickets. I’ve already been to a load of places including Wigan, Bournemouth, Hastings, Leyton Orient, Guiseley,...

I Will Get Silly Tattoos.

I Will Get Silly Tattoos.

I’m a man of my word.  I made one promise on twitter, and made a bet last year with a very good friend.  This has led to me getting two tattoos this week. Before I explain what I got, may I shower praise on Jeff Kohl at Studio XIII in Edinburgh.  A great guy, a fantastic artist and a complete gentleman.  Bear in mind that he inked me in return for a few gig tickets and wouldn’t take any cash off me – he even traded me one of my DVDs for one his awesome studio t-shirts (which I’m wearing as I write this now). So...

10 Things I Hate About… Video Games

Posted by on May 15, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

“It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you, everything I do, I tell you all the time, heaven is a place on earth with you…” So sang Lana Del Rey in her song “Video Games”.  Am fairly sure what she is crooning about concerns some boy or another, all tattooed and muscular and evil (I fulfil two of these requirements) and whilst I could easily settle down with the flame-haired pouty chanteuse, I can equally take her lyrics to sum up my love for – not a girl or boy – but Video Games...

10 Things I Hate About… Wrestling

Posted by on Jan 7, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

Wrestling is one of my favourite things.  I’ve been a fan since I was about eight years old and if anything my crazy level of fandom has only got worse in recent years.  The best thing is that as a comedian it seems to be completely acceptable to enjoy watching men in their underwear pretending to fight. Of course, I’m aware that when writing this some of the people reading it may not be as big fans of the grappling arts as myself.  So this will be the first (and probably the last) of my blogs to include a glossary at the end to...

10 Things I Hate About… Football

Posted by on Oct 4, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

I bloody love football.  I’ve been going to watch games since I was 6, and I’ll probably still be watching them when I’m 96 (should I be unfortunate enough to live that long).  That said, I can easily think of plenty of things that I despise about it.  So with that in mind, here are the ten things that I hate the most about the so-called “beautiful game”. 10:  Identikit Stadiums This is especially apt as a Leicester City supporter.  Filbert Street may have been a dump, but it was out dump:  Unchanged in...

Imagination

Posted by on Jul 16, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

Since the age of nine, maybe even younger, I’ve always employed the same method when trying to get to sleep.  I’ll lie in bed, curled up on my side (I can’t sleep on my back, like a horse) and I’ll use my imagination to entertain myself while the insomnia kicks in.  I reason with myself that just because I can’t sleep it doesn’t mean that I can’t have something similar to a dream-like experience, the best bit about this being that my naughty old subconscious can’t ruin anything for me. As a kid...

Saturday Night Out

Posted by on Jun 9, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

First uploaded to my old blog in April 2011… Tonight, as I walked back to my car after performing in Birmingham, some youth chose to punch me in the face.  I was more stunned than hurt – his clumsy pugilism merely vaguely bruised my forehead so I doubt that the cowardly fuck will be troubling the highest echelons of boxing at any point soon. I have no idea why he decided to attempt to give me a pasting.  He walked out of a bar across the road from where I was working, strode up to me, said nothing and lamped me.  It did lead to...

First uploaded to my old blog over Christmas 2010… THE FOLLOWING TOOK PLACE BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 13.30 and 22.00 ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 19th 2010… 13.30 – BARWELL, LEICESTERSHIRE I open my door and stride into the cool winter air. I’m prepared for a tricky journey – being a plucky BBC employee I’ve seen the weather reports and instead of lying in bed all afternoon catching up on my sleep I’m leaving early for my gig in central London. Plan is pretty much this: 1: Drive the two hours to London 2: Possibly...
