Thank you so much for supporting the Covid Arms.

I'm going to be sentimental for a second here so if you can't deal with emotions (you're a member of my close family) stop reading now. Thank you so much to everyone who's bought a ticket and entered into the spirit of things. The atmosphere online around this gig is so overwhelmingly positive, it's such a beautiful thing. It is nearly impossible to have success with something without absolute dicksplats being drawn to it and wanting to be negative. The fact the Covid Arms is doing such a good job of being a fun and positive space means loads to me, thank you. We've raised over 50 grand for the Trussell Trust now, I cannot tell you the difference that's making. We've also been able to support comedians who've had their livelihood obliterated by this bizarre and tragic situation. Thank you for coming along and donating and allowing these comedians to help themselves out of their situation by doing what they do best, making people laugh. It's a very empowering thing you're facilitating in a world where any control we had of our careers has evaporated. 
Next Saturday's line up (obv all line ups are subject to change because people get ill etc) is a belter. Rose Matafeo, Danny McLoughlin, Ross Noble and music from Robbie Cavanagh. We've been having competitions to win a bottle of gin, because why not, and they've been so fun. This week's competition will be pictures of your quarantined pets watching the show. It's just an excuse to look at loads of dogs and cats tbh but you've paid £2 so you can't moan.

It's possible we might only have a few more weeks of these shows so enjoy them while you can and to whet your appetite Russell Howard, Ed Gamble and Russell Kane are all booked in the next few weeks. 

All details and the link to buy tickets to this week's show can be found at:

If you're looking for me to whine into your ears then the bank holiday is going to be a belter for you!
I'm all over BBC Radio Wales, clang.
I'm hosting a documentary called 10 years of Mach Fest on Friday the 1st of May at 6.30pm. It's been amazing to record and I got to chat to Nish Kumar, Stewart Lee, James Acaster, Bridget Christie and loads more all from my cupboard because that's where the sound is best apparently. 
On the Saturday at the peak comedy time of 1.30pm I'll be part of a show called Live from Lockdown - we recorded the tarot bits today and it's piss funny. 
There's a bit more info here on them if you fancy reading a hastily written press release. So hasty I don't actually think I'm doing the last show, I'm deffo not hosting it anyway. 
If you want to hear my voice before that, I'll be on the Newsquiz earlier that week too - back in my cupboard, where I belong.
If you're like me you're getting to catch up on films and tv you've wanted to see but haven't before. I'm making my way through all the Marvel films - deeply in love with all the Chris's now they all have beards - we're also watching the Crown. I thought I'd hate The Crown because I think indifference is about as generous I could get about the Royal Family but I absolutely love this series. Which now means all my royal wedding mugs no longer seem ironic. Anyway, here's one more thing to watch. it's top secret because we could get in trouble for putting it out but I'd hate for you not to have seen the big one off spectacular we made for TV of Amusical. Click here to have a watch.
