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.

A flaw in my system

One of the few things I’m proud of is my things-to-do-list. It’s handwritten on a folded piece of A4 paper with different sections allocated for different aspects of my life. The only flaw in my system is that things that are neither a priority or fun can stay on lists for quite a long time, like fixing my boy’s scooter or sorting the toilet flusher. ( Don’t worry the toilet still flushes but the plastic pusher bit has come off).

Feel free to tell me about your things-to-do-list. Cheers.

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).

My demographic.

I’ve always assumed that my poems appealed to a younger demographic but the other day I performed a couple of new poems to what could be described as an older audience and they were received well.

It would appear from the feedback the audience were able to relate to my new poems about ageing and being skint.

So perhaps my appeal is universal (smiley face).

Should you require a comedy poet for your event feel free to consider me. I’ve been performing since 2000, doing shows for Apples & Snakes (nationally), Commonword (North West) plus for Lemn Sissay at the Royal Festival Hall and more recently Terry Christian‘s Mad Manc Cabaret.

I’m currently based in SE London.

Domestic Man.

The other week, the other-half had a meeting.
I ended up ironing her outfit for said meeting.
I can’t help thinking, is this what I have become, Domestic Man?
In the absence of a recognisable career is this my future?

I’m hoping 2018 will be more productive.

Ps. Domestic Man has no known super powers.

The Curse of 3Prong Attack??

In our latest #prongcast Prong2 mentioned Robert Mugabe, he’s now under house arrest (Mugabe not Prong2). It’s the curse of 3Prong Attack. The first winner of our Prongs of Praise Nigel Pearson, is currently managing in the Belgium 2nd division. It might be worth our while to get people to pay us not to mention them on our podcasts.

The secret to free time.

I think the secret to how to spend your free time is to not do too much.

For example, last Tuesday I had a rare free day (I was off work and the boy was at nursery). I used this opportunity to align our patio door, clean an oven tray and record a #prongcast.

It’s not for me to say if I could have been any more productive but it was certainly a relaxing day (that might have had something to do with the pint and a half I also had).
