Feb Updates

Bright Club at Birmingham Rep
On the 2nd of February I performed two acoustic sets for Bright Club at Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The night sees a set of academics channel their inner comic genius to show that university research isn’t always as serious as you might think. The event was hosted by Andy White, known for his appearances on BBC New Comedy Awards on BBC Choice and was a sell out in the 140 capacity "door" venue. Its always a pleasure to be working at the Rep with all the professional and talented people there, and the crowd were very lovely.
Upcoming Gigs
On the 13th of February  at 7pm I am joining my friends in Wow Impro to play some comedy improvisational games at Esquires Bar in Coventry. This is a family friendly gig and it's free entry. There's also a couple of fellow Foghorn Improv people joining in this time too.
On the afternoon of the 15th of February I'm making my d├ębut at Softly Softly, an event which takes place at Kiss the Sky Bar in Crouch End. Tickets for this gig are available here
I'm in London again on the 19th of February performing for Icarus Club at The Pelton Arms in Greenwich. Also on the bill is Harry Harris, my very talented friend who performed at one of the Best Seat Sessions gigs last year.
March
I'm nearly uncontrollably excited about March 2015...
I've been asked by Round Midnight Theatre Company to be one of a team of four practitioners to deliver some workshops on the history of comedy at Wellington College International in Shanghai! This came pretty much out of the blue and I'm thrilled to have been asked.
