Pork Pie Gate (and another awesome announcement).

24 Jul

Last night’s 10 hour mammoth sleep did me the world of good.

It didn’t, however, do my breakfast any good. It turned out that Dad decided to eat what I had deliberately left for my breakfast this morning after I’d gone to bed. There wasn’t an apology of sorts, merely a half hearted suggestion of “Well, there’s a pork pie in the fridge…”

Why he didn’t have the pork pie, I’ve got absolutely no idea.

But ALL of that paled into insignificance once some lovely news reached me – one of my very best friends got engaged to her partner last night and I’m SO thrilled for them. My massive congratulations go to Carol and Simon, they’re just perfect for each other and both of them deserve all the happiness in the world.

I’m going to reserve a tiny bit of happiness for myself though, as I can now tell you about one of the other REALLY REALLY REALLY AWESOME things I’m working on during the Fringe. Every time I think about it, I get a little shiver of excitement go up my back.

So. As well as producing the FringeReview New Talent Podcast, I am also working with Ben Walker from Fuzz Productions on the fantastic Pappy’s Flatshare Slamdown and Do The Right Thing podcasts recordings.


I’m over the moon about getting the opportunity to do some more proper work experience with people I admire and can hopefully learn a lot from. Plus I get to work with some fantastic comedians at the top of their game (any time spent in a room with the Pappy’s boys is time well spent) and that’s not even considering the guests who will be on the podcasts. I have no doubt that they’re going to be fantastic.


And that’s not even the end of it. There’s still at least one more cool thing I’m going to be doing next month that I can’t reveal just yet. Soon though. SOON.

If you can’t tell, I’m in a very happy place at the moment. What’s even better is that I get to supplement that feeling with a day off tomorrow. Everyone (mostly me) wins.
