“Part politician, part shaman, part sociologist, part healer, but you’ll happily only focus on the fact that he’s an entertainer” The Guardian

“There are two ways of entertaining an audience. You can either do a show at them. Or with them. And with them is the best way” Ken Dodd
I am an entertainer. I do this through writing and performing. I do lots of very varied projects because I’m lucky enough to be able to follow my interests and make work about them. It seems that I’m interested in lots of things.
All of my work involves encouraging the audience to get involved – directly in the case of my experiential work or as Ida Barr leading the Hokey Cokey – but indirectly I always encourage some kind of response from simply leaning in to take more notice, to getting up and taking some action. Everything comes down to entertainment. It’s my way of doing things. There are lots of others and I like a lot of them, but for me, I need to give you a few gags, some songs, some wry observations and some showbiz skills to justify taking up your time.
I am very proud of my experiential theatre work from Office Party, through VIP, The Razzle to This Show Has No Name. I was very proud to present Prurience, an experiential entertainment about pornography addiction in both London and New York. Music Hall Monster focussed on addiction and performance and what it’s like to be a dysfunctional performer. My new show, The Home, looks at residential care for the elderly through inviting an audience to experience it for themselves for three days.
I feel very lucky to do what I do. I hope you have enjoyed some of it. Presumably that’s why you’re here. On the site are some of my characters and projects, and a gig list. I look forward to seeing you at a show soon. Do feel free to get in touch and follow me on social networks. I Tweet and I FB, but I warn you, just occasionally my posts can be slightly trivial.
A little about me: I am a father, and a son. I am a husband and a good friend. I am a Buddhist, a recovering depressive, and a very keen baker. I am not really interested in any other labels than these. Use them if you like, but don’t tell me.
