Glitch in London! + Monsters!

*Stop Press!*  My Edinburgh Festival creation ‘Glitch‘ is going to be doing the business in London on the 11th and 12th of January 2007.

I’m on at 9:30pm at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden.

The ticket price of £6.50 includes a £1.50 membership fee (valid for a year) so you can go see the shows on before me at 7:30pm then just pay a £5er to enjoy the Glitch experience.

2 shows for £11.50/£12.50.  Barginous!

All the booking details are here, should you wish to book 🙂

Off tonight to be Hooters the Clown at the Press Launch of Paul Garner‘s Monster Art Exhibition.  Here’s the spiel:



We dare you to pay a visit to
December 15th – February 15th
TUSK TATTOO, 1 Stukeley Street (off Drury Lane), Covent Garden, London WC2

Paul Garner’s art peers behind the curtain of a sinister sideshow underworld where cartoon geeks, zombie kids and unspeakable things from the slab mingle menacingly with the ones that the Scooby Doo gang let get away.

Spawned by a lifelong obsession with all things dark, Paul’s canvases conjure up the cast of a demonic Disneyland in which only Pugsley and Wednesday Addams’ dreams could come true; there are portraits of classic Universal horror film icons, grotesques who seem to have leapt from the pages of Famous Monsters magazine, sketchbook renderings of random monsters from Paul’s id… and more!

Paul Garner’s work has been used on poster, t-shirt and CD cover art, tattoo design, as well as appearing in movie & music magazines, as film concept art, giant murals and toy design.  Now this twisted gallery of oddities has found it’s natural home on the carnival midway walls of London’s Tusk Tattoo.  The exhibition also features photographs of Gawkagogo, Paul and partner Sarah Nield’s groundbreaking half-cartoon, half-freakshow theatre & cabaret troupe, previously described by the press as “Toys ‘r’ Us meets Jerry Springer” and “Spitting Image meets Blue Velvet”.


Open 11:30 to 7:00 Monday to Saturday and 12:30 to 6:00 on Sundays.

Must go and polish me nose…

As the end of another year approaches…

So, I did ‘Glitch‘, all those months ago, and it went rather well!  There’s a nice quote on my Projects page (which has had a bit of an update, along with the Links page…).  When I manage to pull my finger out it shall be put on down in the Big Smoke.  More on this as and when.

Since then there has been another screening of ‘Small Talk‘ at Crypt on the Green and I found myself lost in Gawkagogo‘s Halloween maze/Haunted Fun House at Torture Garden‘s Halloween Ball and Opal Nera’s Halloween bash.  It was a long old haul but great to scare the hell out of people!

More news soon, all being well…

Not long now…

I’ve been up in Edinburgh for nearly a week.  Only a few days left until my first performance/preview.  Lots still to be done, but I’m quietly confident and rather excited!

I’ve managed to get a bit of last minute direction from Richard Hurst and he’s been spreading the good word.

Done a fair amount of badge distribution too – to keep the show in people’s heads.  I think they’re rather attractive and am rather chuffed with them!

On another note: ‘Small Talk‘ is being screened at the Portobello Film Festival this Saturday.  Click here for more info.

Right.  Back to the Festivities… 🙂


Tickets for Glitch are now on sale at the Pleasance:

…should you fancy a cheeky little bit of pre-booking!

Preparations for the show are bubbling away nicely.  Still lots to do…

I have an image for the show now, kindly designed by Jae who’ll also be designing the rest of my print and a logo for me.  Keep your eyes open for this beauty amongst the myriad of posters and flyers:

Don’t think you can miss it!

On another note, there’s another screening of ‘Small Talk‘ at the Ritzy in Brixton this Friday at 10am.  Just turn up if you fancy a looksee 🙂

In computer we trust

It seems that I am putting together a last minute how-many-days-are-left?! one woman show for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

I totally missed all the brochure deadlines and I’m not on sale online yet, but for your well kept diaries: the show’s called ‘Glitch‘ and you can find me at the Pleasance Dome from the 20th – 28th of August at 5:30pm.

It’s an anarchic, half-hour visual comedy in the spirit of 2003’s ‘Deeper Underground‘ that lightly skims the mirth-inducing subject of National Security.

More details to follow…

Aside from Glitching I’ve been doing a little bit of filming for a sketch show pilot and I now have a copy of ‘Small Talk‘ on DVD.  Looking into getting it online…

I haven’t got out of my pyjamas today and I haven’t eaten heartily in the slightest.  I’m taking this as a healthy sign of a project underway.  (I have cunningly forgotten my mid afternoon nap…)  Onwards and Glitchwards I go!
