Wow, this internet thing…

A rare thing when anything technology wise works for me but I have news to share, aside from new Instagram stories and two successful vlodcasts on youtube with more planned…

Although my website www.dominicholland.co.uk is ‘terrible’ according to any number of people who tell me so on-line and it needs a complete overhaul… which is […]

Michael Jackson…

At a party over the weekend, a frequent topic for discussion was Michael Jackson. A life of unparalleled success but equally matched by utter tragedy and scandal also.

I have not watched the documentary – not an area of my interest being just one of the many reasons why.

I don’t know whether Jackson is guilty […]

The only way to begin a week…

I say at the end of Eclipsed, how grateful I am to anyone kind enough to review my book/s on-line – and so on a cold Monday morning in London, seeing this review of Eclipsed was very welcome indeed. Thank you, Romany.

Honest, heartwarming and hopeful. Couldn’t put it down.

Small world…

Gigging this week and in order…

Vienna, Budapest, Brighton and tonight, to top it all… no not Vegas, but Sevenoaks of course!

And what a small world it is. After the gig in Budapest a man approaches me. He looks a little sheepish and anxious. He is good looking and in suspiciously good shape for a […]

Europe not working…

Much debate and discussion about Brexit – variously described as a disaster or an opportunity depending on perspective and with purported experts lining up on both sides, so what chance the ordinary punter of making any sense of the damn thing?

An area that interests me is culture and how varied the people of Europe […]

Next…

I have never been woke or trendy. I don’t even remember being down with the kids, when  I was a kid and so last week, I felt very current and modern when I was required to wear a dress for a commercial casting.

Comics of a certain age who happen to be pale, male and […]

A leveller…

Not easy making a living in the arts.

Certainly, the odds are firmly stacked against with millions taking aim and so few hitting the target let alone the bullseye.

We are familiar with statistics about how many actors are unemployed. Variously 90-95%.

And I can attest to the reality that most authors can only dream of reaching […]

It’s the simple tasks…

My life is a simple one, in a professional sense of the word, anyway.

I make people laugh in return for money. An unusual transaction and not an essential one, like being a surgeon – but there is a demand for laughs and since I have jokes and stories…

But this does not mean my professional […]

At the funny coal face…

The way that live comedy has developed – gigs are on-line nowadays for comics to fight over in public – putting their name down and hoping – and often for gigs which pay less than they did 20 years ago…

My favourite alert of late was – “Ipswich – on-stage 8.50. 20 minutes. £80. Ideally, […]

Valentines Day Blues…

Bit of a landmark for team Holland today with my twins, Sam and Harry marking 20 years on planet earth. This is Motorola and Ericsson to the anyone who remembers my old stand-up routine.

“Nokia (Tom) – he’s hands free now… obviously.”

I remember doing that routine so clearly at The Comedy Store and elsewhere and […]
