Edinburgh Day 3 and 4

I was nervous as it was the first day of my show in Edinburgh and I wanted everything to be right. I have made some placards and covered them with book-cover-film to keep the rain off.  They look proper good. At the show there were hiccups of a technical nature. The little telly I had […]

Edinburgh Day 2

Day 22  - Bromsgrove We get a Darth Vader tonight, he's a massive bloke who also does Predator and Judge Dredd. I eat some real food, but it's not too healthy. I'm know since the tour started I've put weight on, and it's really hard not to. Bromsgrove itself is all a bit of a […]
