Future Work includes:

Looking ahead to the next few months, I’ll be bringing my Naughty Japanese Badgers to Birmingham and to Manchester. The Badgers are very naughty. They tip over bins and rummage, they deceive travellers, they have shapeshifting competitions with foxes, plus they have enormous inflatable scrota that they can use as parachutes, parasols, canoes…
I’ll be coming to Birmingham on Wednesday 16th January, and to Manchester on Weds 6th February .

I’ll be performing The Forest Of Chance Encounters (Or: She Gave Me Pizza With Murder In Her Heart) at Hammersmith Irish Centre on Friday 8th February, and on 8th March I’ll be telling the great and ancient tale: Gawain And The Green Knight at Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire.
