Super-heroes in London

Having been born and lived in London all of my life, I have many memories of this world city which has been transformed in the last decade or so and continues to changing so much before our eyes.

And no better example of such a dramatic transformation than Shepherds Bush?

All Londoners will have a particular […]

So how the hell did it happen then?

Having a son like my eldest is definitely odd – especially so, given what happened to him yesterday evening.

And as you can imagine, I am constantly asked a number of questions;

Am I going to retire now? No

Did Tom go to a drama school? No

In fact, until Tom played Billy in Billy Elliot in London’s […]

Dominic appears for a second time on Sky News paper review show

The majority of people tend to have a lie-in on Bank Holiday Monday, but not Dominic. The intrepid comedian was up bright and early for his appearance on the Sky News Paper Review show, which takes place between 6-10am every day.

As part of his appearance on the leading news channel, he sat alongside […]

That’s my boys…

With what is happening to Tom and my family at present – I am conscious that pride is one of the seven deadly sins and rightly so. No one likes a smug bastard after all?

But something happened the other night which made me very proud and it is something I am happy to share […]

Andy the Great

Any stand up worth his salt will tell you that material goes out of date and needs to be dropped.

Some routines just become stale. Others become clichéd and feel generic and some are outdone by technology. For years I relied heavily on my fax routine until the internet came along and saw it off.

I […]

A sad knock out

A big fight this weekend and an interesting one for all sorts of reasons.

Firstly, two white men contesting the heavy weight championship of the world. When was the last time this happened – Rocky III aside?

One of the boxers is British – a man called Tyson Fury – from an Irish traveller background and […]

Smile for the camera?

As we get older we tend to develop idiosyncrasies.

I do anyway and one of mine is a phobia of mail. The kind that drops on our mat I mean and not in to our in-box.

This might be for many reasons. That I don’t receive cheques anymore? Or that I am obviously on various charitable […]

Spider-Man injured!

Traffic is normally a bad thing and why we have apps to avoid it.

Unless we have a blog of course, whereupon traffic is the Holy Grail. On-line – traffic is success and means sales and income.

And as the owner of a website and blog, I find myself with a unique opportunity being the father […]

Our United Kingdom?

As an Englishman, this has been a tough Rugby World Cup.

Like most of my countrymen, I came to it with high and yet realistic expectations. Not that England would win the thing but that they would acquit themselves well by making a semi-final and possibly even the Final just down the road from where […]

Why I am world no.1?

I have written on this blog before about the various issues I have with celebrity golf days.

Namely the humiliation that comes with being a ‘celebrity’ of dubious calibre and especially so to my playing partners who have paid top dollar in the hope of playing golf with Alan Shearer, Harry Rednapp, Mike Tindall…

An awkwardness […]
