In case you don’t know, Mirth Control is the biggest independent comedy booker in the UK.   It has over 1000 comedians on its database (including me), and organises bookings in over 90 venues across the country.

If you get in with these guys you get to do gigs round the whole country – something I really look forward to next year.

Comedian Geoff Whiting runs this moveable mirthfest.  I met Geoff just last week.  He’s a nice guy and offered some good feedback. Although I’m not too sure about their logo which I have copied to make my blog post look nice.

Geoff’s got a well-earned rep for running great comedy nights.  He doesn’t just get the top comics booked – he makes sure the up-and-comings get a break as well.

Result: wild and diverse evenings across the UK, all the comics are on top form, audiences laugh merrily and everyone goes home happy.

My mate and all-round solid  bloke Darren Walsh (left) has a new night starting tomorrow (thursday 4th) at Chequers bar in Old Street.  It’s called Fe Fi Fo Funny.  Which is a great name considering Darren’s a giant himself  at 6’8″.

I’m hopefully looking forward to seeing some friendly faces in the audience – wil you be there?  It’s free entry and you’ll have a great time.  I’m not joking.

Darren’s worked really hard to get this all together, and first nights are always tough anyway – so why not come along and offer your support?

I like Darren’s cartoon of me as well – I’ve turned out much more handsome than in real life.  He is very tall and very talented. grrr.
More details of the gig here.

I have an alter ego – Bobby Stardust, and he performs from time to time.
