More Claptrap

As a nice little pre-Christmas surprise I have been asked to headline Permission to Speak in Stourbridge next Wednesday (11th December 2019). I wouldn’t normally write a blog post for a gig; let’s be honest, I don’t write many blog posts. Yet I think this one deserves something. All round good egg Rob Francis has […]

Dave Does Ted

On 6th April 2019 I will be doing entertainment at TedX Wolverhampton. Yes, that is a bit distanced from the horrendous image you had in your head from my deliberately click baitery title. I’m really quite chuffed that the little sibling of Ted Talks is coming to Wolverhampton. It feels like we’re a semi-pro football […]

Bert Does Well

I’m happy. My play, Bert, had a rather good night at this year’s Worcestershire Theatre Festival.

I needed some footage of me performing for a gig I’m applying for. I do have such things but it made me realise I didn’t have anything of me performing live at any recent gigs. So armed with a set, an audience and a GoPro I came up with this. Enjoy.

#ThisIsWhereWeAreNow

I don’t like the Internet all that much anymore. See what I mean? Now look, I know I’m writing this on the Internet and that video is on the Internet. I know. I’m not saying the Internet is Satan or anything. But it’s definitely an incredibly funny but unstable child with a fixation on stabbing […]

2018. What a Year!

As I prepare myself to enter a New Year it’s worth meditating on the last one. It’s been a year filled with some real positives. I travelled to Seattle to take part in 14/48. The PPP collective has gone from strength to strength. I’ve written a couple of plays and at least one poem a […]
