Thanks to the Falmouth Packet for including this piece on Glen Maney’s Edinburgh preview of The Prostate Years. Here is a wider selection of press I have done to promote comedy Also thanks to What’s On Cornwall
Plus the West Briton.
The Falmouth Packet continued to support my 4th comedy night at the Falmouth Watersports Centre with a piece in last week’s issue. Plus 3 punters came along after reading it after the July night was cancelled. They came back!
Here’s the article. Pictures to follow when finished film. (Yes trying out my Canon camera from charity shop).
The first night in May they put this piece in the What’s On Section.
The next comedy night at Falmouth Watersports (yes, go on have a giggle) will be on 25 September.
Each week I do an hour radio show on Sundays from 7.30pm-8.30pm – The Enhancing Your Chances Show. Then on Tuesday mornings I do the breakfast slot from 7.30am-9.30am – Sophie’s Laughing Alarm Clock Show. After Tuesday morning’s stint, I went to the Perranarworthal Farm Shop and Michelle Burley Hodge was there.
I’d done an interview with Michelle, aired on Sunday 17 March, for an article promised to the West Briton. Michelle showed me a copy of article, which I found I had missed in the 7 March West Briton. However, a copy was still knocking around in my room. Then I heard that a woman had gone to Michelle’s stall because she heard the radio interview! Wow.
I’m organising a promoted comedy night for emerging talent in Falmouth starting on 15 May called the Falmouth Comedy Floor. There are already 2 active comedy promoters in the area, so luckily we all get on and work together. One new night is at Tyacks in Camborne (now I know there’s no u in Camborne).Here’s my set from the April one.
The Falmouth Comedy Floor is twinned with a night I launched with a team of 3 in December 2009, now in the Time Out Top Ten Open Mic Nights in London. Here’s the Freedom Fridge website with the Cornwall outpost page.
In a couple of weeks, am starting doing music PR on a freelance basis for Matchbox Recordings, so please see my vintage Music PR for a taste of what’s to come.
I am rushing to get the bus to see a talk. I can’t find my hearing aid.
The chance to get the bus comes and goes and while searching for missing hearing aid, I find the batteries for my back up.
After midnight, I return from a night of painting Falmouth a light shade of red and see the bag of nuts I had moved to my side table.
I remember, without my glasses on, picking up nuts from my bedside table – where I put my hearing aid at night – after the bag had spilled out the night before. I remember the feel of a large nut that I guessed was a Brazil.
Seeing the bag of nuts that I had folded up on the side table, I have an idea. I look inside and lo and behold, my hearing aid is in there.
I went on a yoga weekend last new year’s eve.
There was a hot tub, which in me induced extra sleep.
A friend had persuaded me to come on this weekend and she also found 4 days without alcohol and with a hot tub meant lots of rest. So she brought a plate of monkey nuts from the kitchen to the room we were both in.
I had booked on this weekend at last minute, so people had been paired off into twin rooms. It was only by warning the venue organisers that we both snored, that we were both in the same room. Therefore we had a plate of monkey nuts to enjoy while reading in between yoga, hot tub and food. And sleeping.
No, Apple Mac, organisers is spelt in English with an s.
Plate of monkey nuts demolished, my friend scoops the shells onto the plate and takes them to the kitchen where she leaves them on the side.
I go to put my hearing aid on to go to dinner but can”t find it.
After a few minutes of panic, I work out that my hearing aid was on the side near the monkey nut shells and resembles these in both colour and shape.
I run to the kitchen and find the plate of empty nut shells.
There amongst them is my hearing aid.
