Authority figure.

Some people seem to have an air of authority and some people don’t. I’m not going to say which camp I fall into BUT the other week I made an announcement in the Year 11 assembly (I work in a school) and 15-20 children started laughing, to the extent the Head of Year felt the need to say, “What’s so funny?!” There was nothing intrinsically funny in the message the humour came from the fact it was me delivering it.

Feel free to let me know if you struggle to be taken seriously (via the comments button or @anunknowncomic).

Do you still use business cards?

I recently made a handful of business cards promoting my prongcast.
I left one of these business cards in one South London bar and it got me thinking, do people still use business cards now we’re all linked on social media?

Let me know when physical marketing (business cards, flyers, posters etc worked for you. Thanks.

Bollards & cones to Birmingham

I’m somewhat fascinated by YouTubers, partly because I know so little about them and yet they are so massive.

Take James Charles for example, who brought Birmingham to a standstill at a meet and greet due to 8000 people turning up.

I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t be able to bring Birmingham to a standstill even if I went to Birmingham with bollards & cones with the sole intention of bringing it to a standstill.

Feel free to let me know which YouTubers you would recommend to someone like me (clueless & old). Cheers

What could have been

The other day my old world met with my current one as I escorted GCSE students to Poetry Live, where they could see what successful poets look like.
At the event Carol Ann Duffy explained how she completes a poem. She will write a draft and then about 6 re-writes. If she’s not busy (doing other things like Poetry Live) that will take about a week. These days with my lack of time and other commitments, it takes me about 2 years to finish a poem. That’s just one of the many reasons I was in the audience and not on the stage.
Have a listen to my comedy prongcast. Cheers
