Berlin Comedy Podcast

How are you? I’m good, it’s tour-guiding season, places to go, people to let see them. I’m also labouring away at my novel.

It was a genuine joy and honour to feature on Daniel Louis Vezza’s Berlin Comedy Podcast. Daniel, Alex Upatov and I talk about my comedy career, Oxford, Russia and hard-left politics. You didn’t think I’d wait until I was famous until I did in-depth interviews did you? Anyhow, enjoy.

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.
