Comedy Reserve – Ed Fringe 2016

I’m delighted to be joining Tom Lucy, Kae Kurd and Jack Carroll in the Pleasance Comedy Reserve (Courtyard edition) at the Edinburgh Fringe this year. It’s at 19.00 in the Pleasance That.

I am uncharacteristically unreserved in my enthusiasm for the Reserve. I hope I’ve made myself clear.

There’s also an equally exciting (some might say rival) Pleasance Comedy Reserve over in the Pleasance Dome. But relax, RELAX! They are on at different times. You can see both.

A Hat-trick

BBC Radio New Comedy AwardFor the third time in a row, I was in a heat of the BBC Radio New Comedian Award, and for the third time in a row I was knocked out. I was on first in the first heat of the competition – the same spot I was in back in 2013. I call it “Old Faily”.

The important thing is that Michael Stranney won and Sophie Willan was the runner up (and they are lovely and very funny). The heat will be on the BBC website until some time in the future when it isn’t. Either because they take it down, or because the BBC is chopped up and sold as kindling:

Nelly Cootalot: Greenlight Ahoy!

Nelly Cootalot GreenlightI’ve just launched a Steam Greenlight campaign for Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet. It’s a funny, animated adventure game which I’ve designed and is being co-developed and published by Application Systems Heidelberg.

UPDATE:

I’m delighted to announce that our Greenlight campaign was a success. Nelly Cootalot will now be Steaming her way to adventure gamers everywhere… just as soon as… the game is actually finished.

Excuse me…
