If you don’t know me, I’m brilliant. Give me a spot at your comedy club – I have my own teeth and car, so am willing to bite and/or drive from the Poole area. I MC’d my own pro-night (Wimborne Comedy Club) for five years and can be funny at yours too!
If you do know me, I’m a fat 66 year old with a gag-filled set based (loosely) around my life experiences with a bit of darkness thrown in. I’ve done the usual gigs in pubs, clubs, attics – the waiting room of a disused bus station being one of the “highlights”.
As well as running my own clubs in Dorset, I’ve appeared in shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and worked alongside Angela Barnes, Ian Cognito, Dane Baptiste, Danny Buckler and many other talented professionals. I’ve performed for Mirth Control, Oi Oi Comedy and many independent comedy clubs and several “Arts Centre” type venues.
Based on the South coast of Dorset, I’ll travel anywhere for a good audience and the right opportunity.
