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 […]
I’m happy. My play, Bert, had a rather good night at this year’s Worcestershire Theatre Festival. The production by Holly Bush Arts has already been performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and run around a few other places so let’s just say they did a grand job.

To say it went well is an understatement. At 5.15am, suffering from lack of sleep and too many pints of real ale and some […]
It is now available… yes, the cover you see to your left is my first poetry collection. “Poetry is Jazz. Welcome to Punk Rock.” The title comes from something a friend said to me a while ago. “The trouble with poetry Dave is it’s like Jazz. The people who perform it enjoy it more than […]
