Donuts and Hollywood! The Epic United States Video Diary.

I'll warn you, this is a bit of a mega-epic at over 9 minutes, but It's my United States Video diary!

Why to people go surfing? I am writing my new show for Edinburgh next year about my travels round the world but I'm worried about the stuff I'm writing about, as I think you write your best stuff when you're writing about yourself and stuff you really know about. I've only been surfing once, I […]

Farmer Phils and Muddy Thrills at the Galtres Festival.

It is the end of August and I have been to two more festivals. The sun was shining for Farmer Phil's Festival and it was dry enough to sit down. Rob was there with his dog, as it is one of the few festivals you are allowed to take a dog too. I took a disposable […]
