Reviews as a theatre critic (1998-1999)
During my time at the Camden New Journal, I started to review plays on the London Fringe circuit and then volunteered to write reviews for the London Newspaper Group.
In 2011, I wrote an hour long play which I am revising into a TV script. Here is the first scene. If you would like to see the finished play please contact me. It is a romantic comedy about a couple who meet in London in their 40s, after both being single for over a decade before meeting.
My interest in theatre led me to interview RADA for the Arberry Profile about their student attraction policy.
As a stand-up comedian (for fun) I was asked to play an Unfunny Comedian in this comedy sketch for Kevin Durham’s Skinny Wrist productions.
For Objective Productions, I acted as a person going for faith healing in Derren Brown’s Miracles for Sale, shown on Channel 4 on 25 April 2011, then repeated on Channel 4 at 10.50pm on 6 April 2013 and again in September 2013.
I wrote three comedy sketches for The Effing and Blinding Cabaret, which have been performed at various festivals from Edinburgh Fringe to Zagreb, at a fundraiser at the Hilton Hotel near Baker Street and at Dans Le Noir restaurant in London.
I organised the live music for the Crouch End and Muswell Hill Street festivals from 1997-2000. Due to the volume of press, I haven’t uploaded it all yet. Watch this space.
Shop For Theatre
I participated in a theatrical shopping experience, which was launched in Falmouth by John Frankland in December 2011 and will be repeated this summer. I contributed three sketches which were performed in venues around Falmouth from 16-19 December 2012.
