My last Sunday appearance reviewing the Sunday papers on the Andrew Collings Show on 6Music will take place at around 3pm on the 7th January 2007. The following week I will be appearing on his Saturday show (which I think starts at 4pm) talking about the week's news, as I hopefully will be most subsequent Saturdays for the foreseeable future.
Radio 2 have decided they want to commission an unprecedented (for me) third series of That Was Then This Is Now. At the moment it is slated for October, but we're going to try and change it as we've done the history of those weeks twice already.
I will be recording an episode of Annually Retentive on Thursday 11th January. I don't know how you get tickets for this or if there are any left, but if you are that bothered you will look into it, no doubt.
I am currently re-writing the 90 minute comedy drama "You Can Choose Your Friends" for ITV1. We will be filming this in February/March and it will be on your TVs on a Friday in June. It is all cast and details of who is in it will be on my website as soon as everything is signed and sealed.
Channel 4 liked my first script for the proposed comedy drama "Double Act", but want me to write a second episode before making a decision on the series. Hopefully I can knock this off in the next couple of rather busy months.
The short film I appeared in last year, "Hard To Swallow" has been selected for the Sundance Festival in that there America. Cool!
menage a un NEWS
I am doing a 10 night run of menage a un at the Arts Theatre in central London, starting on March 27th.
Once that is over I will be doing an international tour of the show. Here's a little taster of where I will be going, but will be sending out an email with full details and box office numbers in the next few weeks. Please support this tour and the London run of the show. If it does well then that increases the chances of me doing a bigger tour next year.

I am hoping to make it to up to Auld Reekie for the 20th anniversary of my first appearance at the Fringe. I am provisionally doing a show called "Oh F***, I'm Forty", but there may well be one or two other exciting projects as well. Who knows?
So 2007 already looking a bit busier than of late. Hope you can catch me in at least one of these things.
Have a good month
