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

Thanks Facebook!

Thanks largely to Facebook I’ve had the recent realisation that all my creative peers have now passed me. They are either getting represented by management, doing one person shows, bringing out books, performing abroad, appearing on Radio 4 and meeting their heroes.

Perhaps the only one of my contemporaries that hasn’t overtaken me is probably Prong2 and that might only because he does a #prongcast with me.

No man is an island.

My management team told me I should join Instagram as that will give me access to an even wider audience. (even wider than the one I’ve already got??)

Not one to ignore my advisors I’m now on Instagram @anunknowncomic. This is also my Twitter handle #branding.

Feel free to check out either or both. Cheers.

I also do a comedy prongcast.

Meritocracy??

If the likes of Dominic Raab, Chris Grayling, Esther McVey or Boris Johnson were black and gained their senior positions within government via a positive action scheme, people would highlight their many deficiencies and say ‘this is what happens when people don’t get their job on merit’. With this in mind, did the above people get their jobs on merit?

Should you have time, have a listen to my comedy prongcast. Thanks.

Me, Kim and the Donald.

Tues 12th June is starting to look like a historic day. Not only is Donald Trump set to meet Kim Jong-un but I am reading a few new poems at a night of spoken word in Crystal Palace. It’s not for me to say which is the bigger event but if any talent spotters or members of the public are out and about in the area come to
The Ungoverned Tongue, at Numidie Bar 48 Westow Hill, SE19 1RX.
8:30pm Free Entry.
Try out my comedy prongcast. Thanks (just press play)

Me or Jeremy Corbyn?

I was walking home from the pub when I passed a couple, in so doing I heard the man say to his wife/girlfriend that he could never vote for Jeremy Corbyn because he is an idiot. Fuelled by a pint and a half (and because I’m a fan) I started to sing ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn…’ only to hear a woman from one of the flats shout “loser” but was she calling me or a Corbyn a loser????
