Ooh, look at that title. What do you think it means? I will tell you.
Yesterday was the last performance of the Edinburgh show I brought up with Phil Cooper, Anecdotes in the UK. Next year, both Phil and I will be bringing up our own 40-minute shows.
And the year after that, in 2017, we’ll be bringing up our debut solo hour shows. The title of this post is the (working, but probably final) title of my show.
Now, don’t go looking for it, but the show will be based on a Tumblr post I wrote this year. But I’ll be removing all the secret jokes, and adding lots of real jokes. And adding a third plot strand.
Currently, everything that exists of the show is written on a single page of A5. It includes two funny things so far - meat machine and non-bespoke dreams. It’ll be the first time since 2012 that I’ve written about hypothetical killings of Boris Johnson. It will include lots of jokes I’ve stolen from Elanor.
Next step is to start writing the show, and start performing bits of it at new material nights as soon as possible. I’ve seen how hard comedians work to develop their hour shows - and lots of the have big agencies and PR teams behind them. I will be doing this on my own, although I’ll certainly be calling in lots of favours from comedian friends to help me.
I’ll also try and keep you all updated on the show’s progress. Any and all messages of support will be appreciated over the next 23 months.
