Great news. 3Prong Attack the #prongcast I co-present have won the rights to the leadership debate – the Lib Dem leadership debate. We haven’t worked out the format yet but we’ve only got one mic & we need to be near a plug socket due to the short battery life of Prong2’s laptop. Still it can’t be any worse than the BBC’s effort.
The podcast I do, 3Prong Attack got a mention on the Radio 2 blues show presented by Cerys Matthews, it’s the most exciting thing that’s happened to us since Ant & Dec followed us on Twitter for a day. We never did get to the bottom of why they only followed for a day. From what we’ve subsequently learnt, I reckon it was Ant that followed us and it was Dec and their advisers who overruled him.
I’ve had to sit and watch the political commentariat put the Lib Dems unexpected good performance in the local elections down to a protest vote, a resurgence, or a response to their remain stance over Brexit. The truth however is that on the last 2 prongcasts I do, we have mocked Sir Vince Cable over his lack of achievements as Lib Dem leader. I can only assume the electorate voted in such large numbers for his party just to spite us.
I’m always trying to find ways of best utilising my time mainly because I don’t have much of it. That’s why this Monday I tried to record a prongcast (a podcast I do with my mate Prong2) during my boy’s nap time.
There was always a risk this wouldn’t work as his nap times do vary but I thought it was a risk worth taking.
Naturally things did not go to plan as the boy didn’t take his nap til about 10 mins after Prong2 had gone home. I doubt I’ll be doing anything like this any time soon although knowing me I wouldn’t fully rule it out.
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.
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.
Talking of which why don’t you add to our 20-30 listeners. Click here. Cheers
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.
