In March 2014 I set up the Comedy evening for the Clergy Conference and had my first comedy stage time as I shared a couple of quips, and then welcomed Paul Kerenza to the stage. It was this experience that led me to book my first actual gig shortly after.
In March 2017 I am booked as the comedian to perform at that same Conference Centre in Derbyshire (albeit a much smaller event I should add). Not only am I performing in my own right three years on, BUT it looks like it will be my 100th gig* (a major target I have been doggedly pursuing). Circularity eh?

* 100 gigs is considered in comedic wisdom the point at which you can START learning the craft. This feels about right, I am beginning to grasp the skills I do not have, and see the dimensions I need to do a lot of work on
