Still no joy. Still no effing joy at getting this thing to submit and verify with iTunes. Do I give up? No. Do I have to fork out money? Yes. Recorded in my car on my way to my buddy Gareth Allison's house for his internet wisdom and skills. Sadly it's still not resolved. Anyway. … Continue reading Rants with Pants Episode 5
Folks. Due to a mix of boredom and a need to do something, I have started up a little podcast. It will feature a mix of zero-guests. Why? Too much hassle. Also, I can record my own little rants. Maybe it will be useful for some comedy material. Maybe it will be useful as a … Continue reading I’ve started a new podcast. “Rants with Pants”

Jim does just that. Jim shot to prominence over a bloody … Continue reading Jim Jefferies Live in South Africa.
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.

One thing comics do like no others, is drive about and bitch to each other of all the ill's and woe's of this comedy industry. From what acts we like through to whose' girlfriend slept with who. It can be facinating and all too ego fuelled at the same time. I started listening to Marc … Continue reading A word of advice for South African Comics.

I have been on the road now for a couple of weeks. I can honestly say that I am having the time of my life.

I get really upset when I see an act come on stage and do a bit of material that I recognise from another comedian or from a generic list off the old internet. Being a hack is more than just abusing someone else's idea. It insults the audience and even more annoying to me, is … Continue reading Joke Thieves are the scourge of stand up comedy. May they rot in hell…(video examples)
