I went for a little wander down to the shops and pretty much just spoke to myself like a madman. Anyway. Here is episode three. Essentially me just moaning about Uber eats and home security. I tried posting this from my phone and tablet earlier. Didn't work. In the process of getting home, I ended … Continue reading Rants with Pants Episode 3
This has been a bleak year for many people. It certainly has been one of change for me. I have to say however that my changes have mostly been from a positive space. Ive been giving my future prospects some attention recently and there has been some fantastic response there. 2016 couldn't be looking any … Continue reading Lunch time #Epicburger #meatfreemovember @frysfamily #Frysfamily
If my body was a car, I would probably fail the roadworthy. I think the need to make changes is something that you often are just a part of. Make changes or feel ill all the time. I say this like I have some sort of idea of what being fit really is. Frankly if … Continue reading A few lifestyle changes may be required.
I have been working hard all day. I wasn't really in the mood to spend too much time in the Kitchen. But I managed to throw this together in about 35mins. It's pretty simple. Take one box of the Fry's Meat Free Mince. Add a chopped onion, some green pepper, some garlic, half a teaspoon … Continue reading Giving the #MeatFreeMovember tacos with quacamole a try.
Snacks. Nothing too heavy. I am the kind of guy who does impulse buy. Sneaky eating is no joke. I have been very aware of my state of temptation. But I have done well. I no longer linger in the queue by the cashier. Nope. I move on by. No more sweets. I have been … Continue reading Day two of a #MeatfreeMovember with a vegan twister wrap.
Ah comedy. She has always been my first love. Funny isn’t about jokes in my world. Sure, they play a part in it but to me, real humour exists in stories, life and truth. When you tell someone you are in the comedy business it can elicit a bunch of responses from people. To be honest, most … Continue reading Are you a Comedian? Then tell us a joke.
Folks are always going on about “going green” and saving the environment. I have always suggested that we need to “stop the nonsense” when it comes to polluting our lovely planet. I live in Cape Town. Some folks are quite negative about his place. I call it jealousy. You can call it what you want. … Continue reading I bought one of those fold up bikes. Why? Because people cannot be trusted.
You know what gets on my nerves? Talent shows. Not the kind of talent shows where we find the next dog that can bark the word “strawberries” in a French accent, whilst wearing a tutu. No. I mean those pompous “lets find the next pop star” kind of shows. You know the type. The formula … Continue reading You know what gets on my nerves? #Stopthenonsense
Seriously though. The cycle lanes just don't work in Cape Town. Since there is no parking in the first place, all the cars and delivery vehicles just double park on the lines, forcing the cyclists to have to ride into middle of the road anyway....If anything, the cycle paths have made matters almost worse. On Adderley … Continue reading The cycle lanes in Cape Town are a joke.
Did you get the Pollock family come to your school when you were a kid to preach about Jesus to you?.. Yes the same ones, who, whilst playing cricket like demons, came to our schools when we were kids to talk to us about demons.
What demons…..The Cartoon Demons of the 80’s
I recall having Peter Pollock, father of Shaun, the “ginger ninja” and the selector of the South African cricket team, actually interrupt our childhood education with this twaddle. Masters of the Universe, Ninja Turtles that kind of thing. What a wally.
You see the smurf’s were demons….What kind of demons you may ask. Well it was the 80’s, and there wasn’t quite the range of cartoons out there for kids at the time in South Africa… So it was mostly gentle kindly things like the Smurfs they picked on. What was wrong with the smurf’s you may well…

I recently had the pleasure (if one can call eating polony pleasurable) with the esteemed Gareth's (plural) I was a guest on episode #43 with Gareth Allison and Gareth Woods where we discussed the (de)merits of polony and other such emulsified meat treats. You can find them on twitter on @twogsinapod The most popular comedy … Continue reading Polony tasting, comedy & bizarre news?
Ok. Truth time. http://www.gumtree.co.za have asked me to write a few words on buying online. Lets start with the truth. Since that is the biggest issue when buying online. Often blind. I have bought dozens of vehicles over the years. Using http://www.gumtree.co.za in South Africa has seen me purchase many of my cars and motorbikes … Continue reading Buying cars online. Good idea or not?
Every so often I get itchy feet. Not all “sell everything I have and run away” kind of travel. But you know, more the “Lets go have a look around the country” kind of vibes. In 2013 I took a year off of sorts (well from South Africa at least) and made my way around … Continue reading I miss my motorhome.
I have owned too many cars. At my last count, I have owned over twenty six cars or motorbikes. So you may be asking. Why have I gone through so many cars. Don't get me wrong, nearly all of those vehicles have been sold on. I don't break cars. I just use them, and when … Continue reading Driving around Johannesburg certainly requires the right wheels.
On Saturday I had the privilege of flying up to Johannesburg to attend the Comics Choice Awards at the Teatro Theatre at Montecasino. It was quite the grand affair to be honest. Many of the comics putting on their best suits and what-nots and making quite the effort. I wasn't going to make it at … Continue reading Review: The Comics Choice Awards. English may be dead. Long live the Vernac.
I suck at using photoshop.I suck even more with deadlines.Together. The combination of deadline and lack of talent has joined to bring you this wee beastie.It's the new poster for (well) my new show. I went with #SorryNotSorry because it seems to fit the narrative of the story.Also see the above paragraph about deadlines..
Monster ginger pussy. Looks like he ate all the pies.
I can understand the need for kosher foods. But this?
Moonlight Mass takes place this sunday. For those of you haven't been on one before, then I suggest you come along. Bring a helmet and make sure you have a light. See you Sunday. Oh and you can bring your bike in or out on the myciti bus.
I think I have been to pretty much every festival in South Africa over the past few years. Stand up comedy has fast cemented itself into the framework of the bigger music festivals. Quite often we are doing the festivals for ulterior motives. As in we the comics enjoy them too. So why not at … Continue reading Biffy Clyro at Ramfest 2014
