TV's longest running Ancient Rome sitcom, PLEBS, starts tonight (Monday 10th) at 10pm on ITV2 with a double bill.
There are two deaths over the two episodes, so it's fair to say the show's got more gritty.

If you miss it, it'll be on the ITV hub and I guess Netflix eventually.


I've also got a bunch of stand up gigs coming up.

12th April - Watson's Wangabout - Mark Watson's night at Crouch End Arthouse Cinema.  Tickets and info here:
19th April - 100 Club, 100 Oxford St. Tickets and info here:
3rd May & 14th May - Arts Depot Finchley and Pleasance Islington. I'm doing two gigs with Ricky Gervais and David Earl and others. I don't have many details on this one I'm afraid. If you want to come, best keep an eye on Ricky's twitter feed and he'll announce them at some point soon (weirdly, most people will be coming to see him rather than me).
14th June - Stand Up Under the Stars at the BAC. Tickets and details here:


I'm in a new sitcom called QUACKS about a bunch of Victorian doctors (although I play a dentist).
It starts tonight (depending on when blogger decides to post this), August 15th at 10pm on BBC2. 
And it's on iPlayer if you miss it:
It's quite gory so probably try and eat beforehand. 

Charity Gig - 31st March 7.30pm

Hi there.
I'm doing a gig at the (very nice) New Diorama Theatre near Warren Street this Friday, hosted by The Pin and with Nish Kumar and Lazy Susan for kids' cancer (as in against kids' cancer). Details here. Ben from The Pin is worrying about tickets so I promised I'd pester people about it. Do come if you can/want to. Tom

Gap Year - Thursdays 9pm E4

My new TV show Gap Year starts this Thursday at 9 on E4. 

It's a comedy drama about 4 young people travelling around Asia, and the older guy they can't shake off (played by Tim Key, right)

It's set in China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Nepal, so as much as anything else, it's a good way to see a lot of lovely places and briefly escape the poor weather/dire political situation.

Here's the

FREEZE At the Soho Theatre - 21-23/12

Me and Key (Tim) are doing our festive FREEZE sort of show at the Soho Theatre on the 22nd and 23rd of December to ideally get everyone more into the idea of Christmas.

We're also doing a SCREENING of our short film about Santa and his elf on the 21st that we mistakenly made in Lapland in 2013 (too cold). And probably another one we made about 10 years ago about New Years Eve as well.

Here's where you can get tickets for FREEZE:

And here's the SCREENING one:


My new play, The Crocodile, based on a Dostoevsky short story, will be at the Manchester International Festival this July. 
All the details are here.

It's about a man that gets eaten by a Crocodile and isn't sure at first and then gets into it. It's surreal and, ideally, funny.

Also, while I've got you, I'm in the latest 5 Dials Podcast reading some of my dogshit novel.
You can listen to that here.

FREEZE at the Soho Theatre - 22-23/12

Me and Key (Tim) will be doing a Christmas flavoured version of our dire double act FREEZE at the Soho Theatre on the 22nd and 23rd of December. Some stuff will be as old as the hills and other things will have been written specially. It's better than this photo suggests.
