Naz Osmanoglu (pictured left) currently appearing on BBC3's "Live at the Electric" as part of sketch group "Wit Tank" worked his way up the ranks at Comic Boom and tonight he stormed in his first headline spot. It's not every day we have a headline act who's a Turkish prince and nineteenth in line to the Ottaman throne! Latest 7's Victoria Nangle spoke to Naz about it all earlier in the week.

Workshops graduate James Bannon is a writer and stand-up comedian with more than one fascinating story to tell. He joined my comedy course at Komedia in 2010 to re-train as a stand-up comedian and turned his extraordinary life into comedy gold. Jamie wrote iconic film "ID" about his time as an undercover policeman infiltrating a gang of football hooligans. It's just been re-released. He's a regular Boom act but tonight he took to the stage after a cracking radio interview and a chat to Argus journalist Dominic Smith. Click on link to read article: www.theargus.co.uk/theguide
Our thanks are going out to Naz, Vicky, Jamie, Dom and Radio Sussex for all the promo this week. Comic Boom sold out. We had a blast. Naz didn't look so much like a Turkish prince in a t-shirt and jeans...

It's been a much deserved incredible year for workshops graduate Angela Barnes since she won the BBC New Comedy Award. She's done us all so proud and keeps on giving me excuses to break into my customary little jig of joy! If you missed Angela's excellent set on "Russell Howards' Good News Extra" on Friday night, click on link to watch it now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYpKvLNP4vQ
It was an exciting week. My thanks to Steve Bennett for inviting me to be one of his Chortle Comedy Conference panellists. I was on the "Getting Started" panel with long established comedy promoters Pete Graeme (Downstairs at the Kings Head) and Julia Chamberlain (So You Think You're Funny/Highlights). Stuart Goldsmith chaired brilliantly. My thanks also to Julia Chamberlain for the nicest introduction - ever. Watch out for the Chortle Comedy Conference next year. It was a fascinating day.
