Here Be Dragons

One of the shows I am currently working on is a brand new sketch show for BBC Radio Wales called "Here Be Dragons". Tickets are now available, but rather than do the hard-sell, here's the bumph prepared by producer Ben Walker (and pinched from the event's Facebook page).

"HERE BE DRAGONS is a brand new sketch show starring a 'Team Wales' of comedy: Cariad Lloyd, Elis James, Lloyd Langford and Nadia Kamil. Writing alongside them are Benjamin Partridge, Gareth Gwynn and Sian Harries.

We're doing three recordings for BBC Radio on Tuesday 1st, Monday 14th and Monday 21st October 2013 at Up The Creek comedy club in Greenwich

If you'd like to come along (please do!), tickets are free but need to be applied for in advance from SRO Audiences. Visit their website here:, go to 'Current Shows' and you'll find the show there.

HERE BE DRAGONS is upbeat and silly, full of vivid characters and skewed situations. You can expect overzealous cleaners, competitive zookeepers, sugar-obsessed multimillionaires and a tale of cut-throat rivalry on the Snowden Mountain Railway"

Thanks Ben.

And while we're here, I may as well mention some other things I'm up to: 

Benjamin Partridge and I stood in for Rhod Gilbert on Saturday morning. The whole show is currently on the BBC Radio Wales website and will stay there until Saturday. If you're too late, don't worry, there's almost always an edition of my Sunday Morning Show to listen to.

Series 1 of the BBC Radio Wales sketch show Elis James' Pantheon of Heroes will be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra starting next Tuesday at 11pm. We're currently writing Series 3 (no link to that yet) which will return to BBC Radio Wales at the end of the year.

I'm also writing on next week's edition of The Now Show and am always throwing things at Jon Holmes for him to say on the XFM Breakfast Show. So, y'know, keeping busy.

It's Just Not Cricket

Nadia Kamil and I stood in for Rhod Gilbert on Saturday morning and not only is the whole show now available on the BBC Radio Wales website, there are also these nifty bitesize chunks, carefully prepared by Producer Dylan.

And while we're in the business of linking to BBC Radio Wales shows, I should mention that just a few hours later I found myself back in the building (this time on my own) for the usual Sunday morning show.

I'll be in for Rhod again next week, this time joined by Wales' premier Jeff Goldblum impersonator Benjamin Partridge.
