Finally got some @reebokclassics Pumps! Little worried I might over-pump them and blow my feet off.
I’ve been lucky enough to support Axis of Awesome on tour in the UK. It’s great fun, but I’m constantly scared of this happening.Tweet

convert your office into a horrible disaster
That’s how you get ants.
What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke.
The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture.
Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.
No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.

For this edition of our Art Focus feature, we present to you the work of Canadian artist Adam Lupton. Painted in oils, his portraiture oftentimes features multiple visages blurred together in a fragmented reality that seems to reflect the different struggles his subjects have with identity. Examples of this include different glimpses of a man dressing in drag and snapshots of another person putting on different masks
An open letter to the stag-do at last night’s gig…
Before I get started, I have to say, this is my FIRST post as a professional comedian! My last diary post was as a semi-professional comedian in March last year. I have since been FULL TIME since May, 2013. Here’s hoping I can continue to not go broke for even longer. Many thanks to those who have been supporting me since I was only an amateur comic. I wouldn’t be here without your constant encouragement.
Right, now on with my entry…
I was terrified when I heard you were booked to come to my preview show. Being a work-in-progress, I wasn’t really prepared to deal with 12 rowdy fellas on a Saturday night who were gearing up for the England VS Italy game after the show. When I saw the Stag rock up in his Little Bo Peep outfit, I was convinced I was going to have a terrible time.
But… you guys… were… BRILLIANT! You were respectful and attentive. You laughed at the right points, you joined in during the moments when I needed you to. You were everything a comic like myself could ever want in an audience.
Of course, as I pointed out last night, you have now given me a completely skewed perception on what to expect from stag-dos. Promoters will call me asking, “Can you do Bucks’ Nights?” and I’ll be like, “CAN I?!” Only to be followed later by my inevitable rocking back-and-fourth in the foetal position outside a Jongleurs.
But thank you. You made it the most enjoyable of my previews yet. I can only hope Edinburgh brings similar amounts of joy. If not, I can always start performing for Hen Parties instead…
BecP.S. Stag: Congratulations. I wish you all the best in your marriage. If you are just as good a husband as you are an audience member, I’ve no doubt you’ll spend many, many happy years together and have a wonderful life. Tweet
