Next Level Sketch with Daniel Willis and Just These Please

I can’t take too much credit for this one. Distracted by writing and learning a song to perform at my sister’s impending wedding, approximately 95% of the organisation, preparation and planning was done by my fabulous co-producers Paul Creasy and Nadine Bailey, pictured here, as everyone should be, on the far left. I had alsoContinue reading “Next Level Sketch with Daniel Willis and Just These Please”

Next Level Sketch with Cow Tools and Julia Masli

No one buys any tickets: I worry. Loads of people buy tickets: I worry. Such is the lot of a comedy producer with comedy anxiety. I knew we were going to have a decent crowd in, but what if it’s terrible? What if I’m terrible? I am like the ancient Gauls, worried that the skyContinue reading “Next Level Sketch with Cow Tools and Julia Masli”

Lads on tour: Next Level Sketch perform at Up The Antic, Bristol and the Leicester Comedy Festival

After our July show was wiped out by the pingdemic – one of those neologisms you feel dirty for using – it was lovely to be back at Hoopla at The Miller with my fellow Next Level humans for some preposterous, funny nonsense. I wasn’t able to attend the meeting in which the sketches andContinue reading “Next Level Sketch with Luke Rollason and The Awkward Silence – August 31st 2021”

Next Level Sketch, with special guests The Free Mondays

Tuesday saw the return of Next Level Sketch to our spiritual home, Hoopla Impro at The Miller in London Bridge. It was another important step on the long road back to normality, as this time we weren’t obliged to do two sets to two different audiences. We had actual special guests in the form ofContinue reading “Next Level Sketch, with special guests The Free Mondays”
