One of the reasons why I've been absent a lot on here lately is I've been working on a number of comedy-based projects. By far the scariest, and most time-consuming, is a stand-up routine I've been working on. And last night I finally performed it to a frighteningly large crowd at a little gig which was part of the Birmingham Comedy Festival.
I was a bit shaky, and a few gags tanked (including the first one - which didn't do a lot for my confidence), but it went really well, and I've been offered a few spots here and there, so you can't ask for more.
If anyone wants to hear my set, let me know and I'll email you the recording. There's one use of very strong language. Oh, and that's not some sort of comedy accent I'm putting on, that's my actual voice.
