Library, Monkey, Jail, R, Donate

21st March 2018

A couple of days ago I performed in Bristol Central Library, and flipping heck tucker, it went spiffingly. We had a great turn out and such a lovely audience. The staff at the library were so facilitating and up for the show. They helped up move the furniture around (which I would of assumed we were not going to be allowed to do!), so that we could create a generous and luxurious performance area under a magnificently high ceiling.

Whoa. Just whoa there. Cool your jets people. It’s ok. I am still alive. I know i’ve dropped off blog-dar for a while but now I am coming directly at you with a massive punnet of information. 

Firstly, I had a cracking show last night at Light House Theatre in Poole. Thank-you to everyone that came along. I had a blast! That is all. 

Donations welcome!

13th February 2018

So many people have been asking if they can give money to the ABC Tour. Well ok, not that many. Actually, no one has said that, and maybe that’s the problem! 

We are almost at the half way point of the ABC Tour, and so far I have been completely funding this project myself. Most of the shows have been free entry, unless they take money for the venue, or the venue wants donations for a particular charity. I do not make a penny on the ABC Tour shows. If anything, I make minus pennies! But to be honest, I’m ok with that.

For this blog post I wanted to try and give you more of an idea of my situation whilst writing the blog. So, this week, I am going to be listening to music, and whenever the track changes, I’ll write the track I’m listen to in red writing like this. Just for a bit of fun!

(Hole in the Bucket by Michael Franti) I am currently sat at home, have poured a generous glass of malbec, and have given myself the task of writing this week’s blog. Here we go…

I is for...

27th January 2018

Unfortunately, I have had no luck with booking an ice rink for me to do a show on. Despite taking ice skating lessons (Thanks Linda!). However, I have found that it is always good to try and turn a negative situation into a positive opportunity. So the next thing to do was to find another date for I in the alphabet. I didn’t want to have to change other dates on the tour to try and fit around my new “I” date. And I wanted something that would be different to the other letters. So here it is, and I hope you’re ready for it. Are you? Well ok then. The show for I is…….Internet!

J is for Jail

12th January 2018

Despite waking up with a nose packed tightly full of snot and a gravely smokers voice (I’ve never smoked), yesterday was still a fantastic day. I started the day by running through the plan for the show that was to happen that night. It was J is for Jail on the ABC Tour. Routines practiced. Lists checked. Everything packed. Loaded into the car. Done.

Recently I have been trying my best to push the promotional side of the ABC Tour. I am not very good at this. There seem to be too many variables. I could promote one show a little bit and get a big audience, and then conversely, I promote a show a lot, and get not many people turn up. This is what happened last night.

Eden Project! Wow, what a venue. Now, before I talk about how it went, I have a little confession. When organising shows for this tour, I had very strict rules on venues.

1. It can’t be a place name. For example, Norway, Cornwall, or Bristol.

2. It can't be a brand name. For example Ikea, Primark or Tesco. 

3. It can't be a type of place. For example an Indian restaurant is R for restaurant and not I for Indian restaurant.

I have officially booked 7 out of 26 shows of the ABC Tour. To be honest, there was a part of me that thought that it really wouldn't get this far. But there’s no going back now! 

I am now very pleased to announce that show 6 is now well and truly confirmed. F is for Forest!

This one is going to be really exciting for a few reasons; it is going to be there first show that is going to be lit by fire, and it is in a stunning location. There are no toilets, so be prepared. 

Door World Summary. And E....

22nd August 2017

I have just finished unpacking the car from my gig tonight at Door World in Bristol. That’s right, tonight was D is for Door Shop on the ABC Tour, and it went a lot better than I was expecting. I have to be honest, as I was setting up, I had a funny feeling that this would be the show that no one would show up to. I felt anxious. The show was due to start at 6pm.

ABCD

9th August 2017

The ABC Tour is off to a flying start. The first stop was Bristol aquarium. I have to be honest, I did feel like King of the Blags by getting to perform here. It just so happened that the stars aligned; the aquarium staff were having a staff do and they needed some entertainment. I was joined by my good friend Sam Veale who was helping out with filming and setting up the sound.
