Comedy

In Jan 2013 I started getting into improvised comedy 😂🎭, and since have been in numerous comedy groups, performing a lot around London 🇬🇧 and the occasional international gig 🇫🇮🇩🇪. Since this I’ve explored stand up 🎤, clowning 🤡 and musical 🎼 comedy as well. Below is a run down of my active and past comedy groups or projects.

Current Comedy Projects

Stand Up

I started getting into stand-up from the summer of 2019 and since have been doing a bunch of courses and show to see how it goes. Here’s any footage I have:

Clowning

Since 2019 I’ve been doing a reasonable amount of clowning courses and a few solo clown shows. At the moment the idea is to merge the clowning into my stand-up work. But could end up doing more specific clown stuff as well.

Velociraptor

A musical improvised comedy group. We do scenes that end in improvised songs! Started in 2019 we’ve done multiple shows all inspired from what you do on a normal Sunday.

NoScript and Smoosh

NoScript is the programming (Specifically React.JS and JavaScript) based improv comedy house team for Smoosh (A comedy night by programmers for programmers). We started with the first Smoosh event in 2018 and have played every Smoosh, including our own nights, private events, various conferences and overseas (React Berlin, React Finland).
