Pip pip pip pip pip piiiip!

Last year I went along to Backyard Comedy club for a short talk about the BBC pips. Anyone who’s ever listened to BBC Radio 4 will be familiar with these six little bursts of noise, but where did they come from, and what do they mean?

With thanks to the Boring Conference for commissioning this talk in the first place, and to An Evening of Unnecessary Detail for inviting me to their night to recreate it, and for their work producing the video.

BBC New Comedy Award 2018

I was lucky enough to be shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award this year. My heat was at Up the Creek in Greenwich, hosted by Dane Baptiste and judged by BBC comedy producer Victoria Lloyd, Steve Bennett from Chortle and Holly Walsh.

I was excited to be in a heat with Benji Waterstones and Thanyia Moore, and met half a dozen other fantastic acts, many of whom I’ll be booking at Comedy at the Wheatsheaf before too long.

It was a really fun evening. The radio show of the heat can be found here!
