I started stand up comedy in October 2012 after completing the excellent course run by Paul Smith (now incredibly famous, but still I should add very humble) at Hot Water Comedy Club.
I was runner up for Hot Water New Comedian Of The Year (I lost to James Oakley who reminds me of this on the anniversary of his victory), a finalist in Southport New Comedian Of The Year (where I was nearly booed off) and came third in XS Manchester’s Comedian Of The Year (or as I like to call it “the sympathy placing”).
I was regular compere at Pros & Coms Comedy Night (ave. audience 15) in Liverpool while gigging across the North West. After brief move into storytelling I started performing musical comedy. I’ve gigged with Gary Delaney and Tom State, neither would remember me and I was too shy to talk to them, but hey, something to tell the kids I don’t have. I am now based in Chester and following extensive research and discussion think I am probably “Chester’s 4th or 5th best comedian currently residing inside the ringroad”.
Then I discovered that while the musical comedy was reasonably successful it was spiritually and emotionally unrewarding so, as a result, I’m back at square one, with no real material, no direction or defined style and yeah… At the start of the road again.
Book me for you new material nights. Oh, and prepare to be forgiving.
My current set:
A first performance of my 2018 show, Truth.
A work in progress performance of a show I created in 2015.
This first clip is from Nottingham and is nearly 2 years old – it’s my more standard and more filth laden set.
