Healthy Alternative.
I went to visit
my dad in hospital in Cambridge today and, considering how things were just
three days ago - and how bleak the prognosis was - the improvement is pretty
damn miraculous; it’s the Second Coming in an Ephgrave sense. This only serves
to illust...

"I Want My £11 Back."
I’m depressed by the number of people who opted for a refund as a result of the
change to Thursday’s scheduled Mostly Comedy line-up, as it serves to
illustrate how many these days just come to see a specific name. The substitution's more than suitable, wit...

Living Heroes.
The level of care the
NHS achieves despite having Jeremy Hunt at the helm and such terrible funding is exceptional. They're vital, and yet the
press and our Government abuse them; what’s more important to us than the heath
of the people we care about? My da...

Mostly Exhibits.
Today, Glyn and I visited a museum in
London where we’re likely to be hosting a one-off Mostly Comedy in June (as if
we don’t enough Mostly Comedys to contend with in the near future). When you’re approached to run a club by a

Pushing It.
Today was long
but productive, even if was filled predominantly with admin. What pleased me
most was I managed to do a little work on some material that, while brief, felt
promising; at least I seem to be slowly and gently heading in the right
direction wit...

'University Challenged': Week Thirty-Five
Lowery is the closest thing we’ve had to a
classic University Challenge contestant this series, though his old-fashioned
garb doesn’t provoke as much hilarity as a single, extreme facial expression
from Monkman. Oh, how I miss Monkman and his Monkmanny ways...

We All Fall Down.
Today, I finally got around to a job I've been meaning to do for weeks and pulled together a few paragraphs about this year's Edinburgh show to form the basis of a press release for it. I haven't let the title slip here yet as far as I'm aware, so now's as ...

You Couldn't Have Found a More Down Hero.
Controversially, one of my favourite Wings albums is their final one, Back to the Egg, and one of
my favourite songs on it is the soulful groove-driven 'Arrow Through Me'. I was surprised,
on hearing the episode of ‘Take It Away: The Complete Paul McCartney...

Cliff-face.
…and then this
random guy stood in for him. I have a number
of questions Re. Julia Quenzler’s artistic representation of Courtroom Cliff,
but one in particular's at the top of the list: why, when he’s one of the most
famous faces in popular culture from the...

Hill Be Coming.
So, today was the
day we booked Harry Hill for Mostly Comedy. I’m well aware I
just started a sentence with the word ‘so’, which is one of my personal
bugbears, but I feel it’s appropriate in this context, on account of the fact
it’s really quite impressive...
