I will be returning to do yet another Fringe with a show provisionally entitled "What Is Love Anyway?"
I will let you know all the details as soon as I have them and there's the possibility I might be doing some kind of podcast show as well, though Mr Collings will not be coming up this year.
As always you can buy all of my DVDs and podcast stuff at http://www.gofasterstripe.com/
They have also recently released a brilliant Kevin Eldon DVD and should imminently be bringing out Andrew Collins: Secret Dancing which might be the greatest comedy DVD of all time. Check out all their stuff. It's a goldmine for fans of great comedy. Please support these toilet-blocking Welsh idiots.
Richard Herring's Objective will be returning to Radio 4 for four more shows in the autumn. The Collins and Herring 6Music show is on hiatus until the end of the tour, but we are continuing with the Collings and Herrin podcasts available on iTunes or http://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts/collingsherrin/
I have also been commissioned to write a comedy drama script for BBC TV. More news on that when I have it.
My Grandma, Doris is 100 years old on 31st March. Happy birthday Grandma.
Hope to see you at one of the gigs.
Thanks as always, for the support.
