My Final Poster: Hellpants and the FBPK

This is my final poster for the new show.  Very very excited to be writing it at the moment.  I have some pretty sick new ideas and plan on working this show hard for a wee while to come.  Please do let me know what you think of the poster.  It was the work of Durban comic Dusty Rich.  Dusty is a damn fine tattoo artist and kindly did the work for me.  I am going to work hard to get that buff in real life though.  Check them out for more info.


Just how much work does it take to generate a new one-man show?

I have been doing this comedy lark now for a good few years.  Started it all off on Womans Day in 2004.  It was tons of fun, and it sort of stuck.  I worked in the UK for as long as I could bear the long trips in the car and the shit weather.

Im sort of finding my comedy mojo at the moment.  My new show is underway.  I have performed two shows previously at the National Arts Festival and let me be the first to say, They were shit.

Well when I say first.  I think other people actually beat me to that.  I got a shitty review or two and basically hated what I was doing.  The first show “Get-Up Stand-Up” was much better than the latter one, “Things that make me happy” but I swore to myself, that I would make this upcoming show, something that I was prepared to put my name to and my passion.

So I called it something a little off centre.  It is called “Hellpants and the FBPK”

a rought draft of my new poster for my new show....ooh exciting

Now Hellpants is my twitter name.  And the FBPK?  well that is what I am writing about.

2010 was seriously the strangest year of my life.  I am not going to say that it sucked. Cos it didnt.  It sucked that I had my accident, It sucked that I was so badly injured for so long.  But the year was awesome.  I met my fiancee’, I learned a thing or two about life…. and I learned to be funny again.  I think.

I may come across to some folks as an opinionated tit-head at times.  But underneath my grumpy persona lies the heart of a kindly passionate man.  Granted.  My passions may have been self-serving.  But this is all changing or changed already.

I am looking at taking the show on the road later in the year.  In the meantime i am compliing my materail and sketches into a cohesive show. Something I havent been able to achieve before.  I just need to get my Autovilla Kombi Camper sorted out… and I will be on my way.  I just got news of the venue I am in.  I have ten performances booked for the Scout Hall.  The ideal venue for me.  My posters are being designed and printed shortly, advertising is being booked and PR getting sorted.

I really do hope this turns out the way I am hoping.  And I hope you bloody well come to see it too.
