Do you work here?

A woman at the train station kept asking me detailed questions about her journey. I wasn’t able to help so I sent her to the ticket office. It was only then that I looked down to see I was wearing my school ID badge. She must have thought I was a really unhelpful staff member.

Feel free to let me know when you’ve ever been mistaken for staff.

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.

I’m not Paul Nuttall

Unlike Paul Nuttall I know what is written on my website. Mainly because I wrote it.

Recently, I re-did my ‘About Me’ page. I’ve tried to reflect the creative projects I’m involved in, plus my work with young people in education.

Til next time, be nice to each other.

Should you have time, take a listen to my comedy prongcasts. Cheers

Have you found a job thanks to Linkedin?

Hola. Hope you are well.

Every now and again I feel I should do something to elevate my career from its near comatose¬†state. This was my mindset last summer, when whilst off work for 6 weeks (school holidays) and feeling energised, I decided to join Linkedin. I have to admit I didn’t really know what I was doing (I still don’t).

Since then, I’ve not really done much with it, til now. In the last week I’ve ‘connected’ with people who requested a connection, all people I already knew, is it technically networking if I already know them? In addition to this I now ‘follow’ a number of organisations, whatever that means.

Should you have any tips on how I can make the most out of being on Linkedin, feel free to let me know. Alternatively let me know if you’ve found a job thanks to Linkedin. Cheers. You can contact me via the comments button or on Twitter @anunknowncomic

Til next time, be nice to each other.

Organising a meet up in a pub

Hola. Hope you are well.

I went back to Manchester recently for my mate’s wedding (I was the best man). Prior to my return, I decided to ‘reach out’ and txted a number of people I’d not seen for a while. In the message I told people I would be in a designated pub at 8pm on the Thurs and for them to come along should they be around. As is often the case with these things, the people who couldn’t make it contacted me straight away.

By the evening of the meet up I only had one person who had confirmed they could make it. As I was walking to the pub I got a txt off this person saying they were too ill to make it.

This left me in the odd situation where I still had to go to the pub just in case those people who hadn’t contacted me at all, turned up.

By 8:15 no one had turned up, neither had my pint (apparently they were changing to barrel) but then my pint turned up, as did a colleague who I used to work with in the late 90’s. She proceeded to repeat back things I’d said from that period, all of which I had no recollection of.

I’m not sure what the moral of this story is, if there is one at all.

Til next time, stay safe!

Making yourself harder to hack

Hola. Hope you are well.

In no way am I condoning the actions of the people who leak naked pictures of celebrities but if you are a celebrity (or even if you’re not) and you are thinking of taking a naked picture of yourself or filming yourself in an ‘intimate’ situation, then you may want to think again.

Instead of recording these things for posterity you may wish to upload them to the hard drive in your head, your memory. Although not always reliable your memory is harder to hack.

What I don’t understand is how the hackers are able to access the pictures even when they’ve been deleted. Especially when you think if your computer crashes, losing all your work, it’s virtually impossible to get any of it back, no matter how many boffins you ask. I suppose that’s just one of the many conundrums of modern life.

Til next time, stay safe!

What I did in my summer holidays

Hola. Hope you are well.

Anyone who’s ever read this blog will know it’s not a vehicle for me to boast about my achievements. This isn’t a conscious decision, it’s more to do with not having achievements to boast about.

However, the figures are in for August and both this blog and my football blog, ‘The View from the Trevor’ recorded their best figures ever. It definitely helped that I was off work all through August, allowing me to write more posts and promote/pester people on Twitter.

In addition to this, the podcast (prongcast) I’m involved in 3Prong Attack has also gone from strength to strength with it becoming more popular in Holland and the USA than in England. We’ve also gained a following in Athens, although nowhere else in Greece.

Anyway, I’m back at work now, after 6 weeks off (no one ever seems sympathetic when I mention this) so I’m sure I won’t be repeating these figures anytime soon. In the meantime, thanks to all those that have read or listened to me in my various projects, it is appreciated.

Til next time, stay safe!

Taking your broom to Clapham

Hola. Hope you are well.

So Boris Johnson wants to become a MP (he probably would like to be Prime Minister).

As he looks to the future, I thought it might be nice to look back on his role as Mayor of London and the job he’s done. A job he’s held since 2008.

Despite living in London for almost 4 years I couldn’t think of his main achievements. I do remember that after the London riots he did take his broom to Clapham to help with the clean up. When I say help, he turned up, got chastised by the public and then left again but for the purpose of this blog let’s just stick with help.

I’m hoping you can help me by answering the question, What has Boris Johnson done for London? You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Opening a can of beans

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was interested to see that Chris Martin (Coldplay) is back eating meat after splitting from his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow a strict vegetarian. The implication being that his decision to not eat meat during his marriage was a decision influenced by his wife. With this in mind, what would be the first thing you’d give up/take up, if you were to split with your current partner? Let me know via the comments button, or on twitter @anunknowncomic

In other showbiz wedding news, Cheryl Cole recently got married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Apparently her husband spent ¬£300 000 on the engagement and wedding ring. I’m sure no one reading this has that kind of money to spend on a wedding ring but I am interested to know how much you’ve spent on a wedding ring. Maybe you’ve been married a few times and so collectively you’ve spent a fair whack on wedding rings . Alternatively, I’d like to hear from people who’ve spent very little on a wedding, the cheaper the better and how was it received?

And finally…. in matters closer to home, my other half, unbeknown to me decided to take our only tin opener to work, meaning I had to improvise when for lunch I needed to open a tin of beans. For those interested, I used a hammer and a knife and made holes all round the can until I was able to remove the lid. Let me know when you’ve used an item for something other than what it was designed for.

Til next time, stay safe!
