ebayanddaring 024Hello everyone, I am no longer teaching while I concentrate on writing. The wondeful news is that my book The Serious Guide to Joke Writing has now sold over twelve thousand copies and at times it’s been so popular that it’s been at number one in the Amazon chart ‘Comedy & Stand-up’.   To see more about it CLICK HERE.

My next book Grow Your Own HRT is out soon, details will be posted as soon as I have them. This all gives me time to finish a long time project All the things I tried for my M.E or The Stand up who couldn’t stand up – I haven’t fully decided  what to call it yet. I have been writing it on and off for years and I’m nearly there now. Just trying a few last experiments with my health, which you might be pleased to hear is slowly getting better. 

I’m so glad that people can still access my joke writing course through my book, plus you can see me teaching onYouTube.  A local student made a film about doing his first stand-up gig (a few years ago now).  The editing makes me look a bit contradictory and I’m not keen on the close ups (ha ha) but CLICK HERE to see for yourself. If for any reason you can’t see it then try pasting this code in


I have also posted a few articles about comedy here. Why not try The Secret of Comedy Writing? or Comedians your insecurities are a joke!, Genius? It’s all about taking risks and Why I use Joke Writing Formulas, and How to deal with Hecklers.

Happy Joke Writing
