Had a lot of fun recording the first episode of Vix Leyton’s very fun podcast Comedy Arcade with Thom Tuck and Esyllt Sears. You can have a listen here and I’ll be in a future episode too!
I’m doing a bit of reading in Andrew O’Neill’s online read-through of a sitcom script that he wrote. It’s this Thursday the 24th at 9pm and as Andrew is very funny, it’s highly likely the script will be too. So tune in. Here’s the link and that: https://www.facebook.com/events/323232738900642/
After experiencing a good comedy show, audience members may feel elated, angry, excited, or even enlightened. From deconstructing popular misconceptions to simply making people laugh, comedy serves an important role in our society. Whether you’re an aficionado of the form, or simply interested in discovering new talent, here, listed in no particular order, are some […]
Chuffed to have this little piece in Empire Magazine about watching Old Boy for the first time (the original not the ‘Josh Brolin isn’t Thanos so what’s the point?’ remake). You’ll have to buy it to read the whole thing, obvs but here is a sneak peek of the first few words and then a […]
The podcast has returned after its short summer break. First ep back is gags on all the politics of the past few weeks, plus a chat with assistant headteacher and former DfE advisor Caroline Spalding about the schools returning.

Thoroughly enjoyed playing D&D (sort of) for the first time for Dungeons And Leopards on Twitch with James Ross, Harriet Braine, Autumn Jarvis and Anil Godigamuwe. Also thrilled to have fan art made of my character (thanks to @thebookofmac on Twitter). You can still watch the whole thing here if you fancy it: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/726354350
I had a lovely chat with Jamie at Fringe Festival Support, all about my general levels of despairing during lockdown and after. FFS do lots of work looking into the mental health of performers, so warning: Some stuff I talk about is a tad bleak.
I occasionally get some of my gags on Twitter in the very fun website The Poke and then usually forget to share it when I do. Starting with this week, and whenever I can remember, I’ll pop the links on here should you fancy a laugh/polite smirk/abject wailing. Here are this week’s: 1. Boris […]
I did a little blog about going up to Edinburgh when the Fringe isn’t on, how comedy is still a mess and the general state of things. It does also have some stuff about telling jokes to seagulls though, so not all bad. Do have a read: https://medium.com/@TiernanDouieb/fringeless-70bfa5449fcd
It’s a FGWG special this week as we look at surely the most terrifying types of gigs: shows for kids. Yes, you may picture total bedlam, like staging classical music for cats, but some acts are absolutely ace at it, such as our old pal Tiernan Douieb. He’s the likeable face/brain of Comedy Club 4 […]
