Next Gigs and Appearances

Oh no, not something else cancelled!

Pah, pah, and poo! Whilst Northampton isn't 'locked down', we are still in special measures because apparently it's a lot of fun to make sandwiches. So the organisers of Kaya have postponed the festival until bank holiday weekend 2021.
I very much hope I get another gig before then.

Adventure!

I am so sad that most of the events I was looking forward to this year had to be cancelled. As well as lots of conventions I was going to with my editor's hat on, I was going to lots of festivals with my pirate's scarf on. But never mind, lots of videos of my award-winning children's comedy group's show The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen are available virtually for now. We can't wait to go adventuring again soon!

Club Polymath

Hey peeps!

The word polymath comes from the Greek: πολυμαθήςpolymathēs, “having learned much” i.e. someone who is brilliant at loads of things. I don’t think we use this word enough. Some of us are proud to be “geeks”, which means we are super keen on a particular subject, or “nerds”, also super keen on a particular subject but with less cool t-shirts. I wear these which are pretty darn cool. If you are clever and talented you may have been called worse things than a geek or nerd, but never mind the jealousy. My credo is “Dream, Strive, Achieve”, which is the happy, centred ideal between “Live, Laugh, Love”, and “Bind, Torture, Kill”. 

On this website, I would like to enthuse about lots of things – not just what I can do, but also how talented my friends are.

Think about all the horrible people in the world: dictators, haters with followers, online trolls. They all had that one talent and made it work for them! Isn’t it time you took your much vaster potential for awesomeness and made the world a brighter, happier place? Be Leonardo DaVinci! Be Madame de Pompadour! Be Danny Devito (Renaissance Man)!
