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.
