My new DVD "Oh Flip, I'm 40" is now back in stock after the first print run sold out in double quick time. So don't miss out. Buy it now. It's a double disc with a ridiculous amount of extras and it's only £15 (you can also buy the programme for the show and every time you do one pound will be given to SCOPE - the other pound pays for the postage).
My book "Bye Bye Balham" is still available - though it's selling well and we're not planning another print run, so don't put it off. It's the first six months of Warming Up, plus lots of bonus material about what was going on behind the scenes. It is good.
All my other DVDs and some posters are also available. I think we're also planning a very limited run of some silly T shirts, but will let you know about that.

I think the Tonight show in which I attempt to do a gig without swearing and a gig with extra swearing is on this Friday at 8pm on ITV. To be honest it was a bit of a daft experiment and I think they will try and skew it so it fits into their view. But swearing is really funny and I will continue to do it. You mo fos.

Apparently a DVD of either the first series or all of Time Gentlemen Please (which I wrote and appeared in as a bean faced postman) is coming out in March. I haven't been told anything about it.
The entire unedited CD of "On the Hour" has also been released by Warp records. You can get that here- - for example.

I am recording a radio show next week where I will be discussing my teenage diaries. I don't know when it goes out or on what channel. Er... I'll try to find out for you.

The podcast is heading towards both its first anniversary and its 50th edition. You can download it from or from iTunes. It's going really well. If you haven't heard it yet, then start at the beginning. It should only take you 2 solid days of listening to catch up.
I highly recommend the Adam and Joe podcasts as well. They are better than ours.

Starting to work out if I am doing this and what I am doing. I think Andrew and me might do a daily podcast show for part of the run and I am also planning on doing a new show (or maybe a reworked Christ on a Bike). My working title is "Hitler Moustache" but this might change.

I am writing a book for Ebury about being immature, though the title isn't settled on yet. It will be available in many months time.

Hope all is well with you. And hope to see you on the tour.
