Writing and Comedy from James Harris

Month: December, 2014

Shows

I had a writing year. I leave 2014 with a finished full-length novel, a short screenplay, and a three-part radio play on my hard drive. Good Lord, I even managed to write a few things on this blog. Of course, I’d rather have a radio play awaiting production, a novel accepted by a publisher and a screenplay in the hands of David Gordon Green – but you can’t have everything. Or, frequently, much.

Nonetheless, what I do have is a raft of stand-up gigs booked for the new year. The full list is here with some highlights below.

Further gigs will of course be added. I have a new fifteen minutes for London which I’ll be taking out and developing, and at the end of January/start of Feb I’ll be doing some of my German greatest-hits back in the Vaterland. I’m looking forward to getting on the comedy pony again.

See you on the road.

‘Gone Girl’: Unofficial trailer

International performance artist and my flatmate, Paula Varjack, and I have been at it again, producing one of our parody film trailers. This time we take on the Ben Affleck/Rosamund Pike domestic seether ‘Gone Girl.’ I’m particularly proud of this one, mainly down to Paula’s superb work on the technical front. Incidentally, we have a rule making the trailers to never spend any money on them.

Check out Paula’s website here and also our YouTube channel here. There will be more parodies in 2015. And in case you’re wondering – yes, we do do requests. Currently I’m agitating for our next parody to be ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, which Paula assures me is a terrible idea.
