Socially Distanced Comedy - A work in progress

Here's a transcript of the event description on Facebook. 

1. Varför är det här på engelska? Linköping är ju i Sverige! Fy fan! 

The short answer to that is: Deal with it! The longer answer is a combination of ‘Come…

This Is The Year That Was - 2019

As the year draws to an end, it’s time to do a quick summary of the year that has gone. I’ve snuck away to my office to write this as the smell of cooking rises up the stairs and as…

Lund Comedy Festival 2019

The Lund Comedy festival came and went, and I was there. 

I haven’t been for a couple of years, but the festival has always been a highlight in the calendar. This year I was back, back, back and ready to…

On the red carpet

Last week, on Thursday, we had the first public screening of our film Big In Sweden. It was as close to a red carpet event as you can get. There was  fizzy water instead of champagne (that’s Sweden, for…

That was the year that was - 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, here's a quick look back at the year that was. 

Like most years, when you sit back during those strange, long-weekend-like days between Xmas and New Year, it’s hard to remember what…

Northward, Ho!

 

There’s a lot of north in Sweden. In fact, it’s mostly north. Just take a look at a map. When you think there can’t possibly be any more north there’s a whole load more north even further north…

To Edsbyn!

The excitement is starting to build. It’s almost time to hit the road and start filming phase two of a project that first saw the light of day just over a year ago. Yes! This time next week, I’ll…

Pornography for Farmers

There is no delicate way to put this, but right now, at this very moment, there are farming folk, yokels, honest toilers of the land, who are getting off on a film to which I have lent my voice.

Pup- Star

I haven't written a blog post for a couple of weeks. I apologise. I was busy. Then I was ill. Then I was busy and ill. Traditionally, it's February where everyone gets ill. But this year, February was a…

Pitching with The Pitch

It's been a decent start to 2018. The first 'week back at work', that week that looms over the holidays like both a gruesome spectre and a beacon of light, has involved three pitch meetings and two voiceovers. It's…

Slapstick!

2018 is here like a kick up the bum, like a custard pie in the face, like a bucket of water tipped down the pants, like fingers slammed in a sash window, like brick after brick falling onto your…

That was the year that was - 2017

It's the time of year when you are supposed to look back and sum up all your achievements, successes and generally what a great person you are. The summary should also be peppered with a few failures and heartbreak…

School's out for the winter

School's out. And as with every year, the kids parade the streets with burning torches. Twelve year olds in charge of fire. The parents are never invited to what happens when they get to wherever they get, but I…

The Silence of the Goats

Yesterday I went to Gävle to see the goat.

Not just any old goat, but the famous goat of Gävle, the Julbocken, the goat that has put Gävle on the map and set the place alight. I…

A busy week!

I was in Stockholm earlier this week to talk to a few people about next summer's film project. Some small knockbacks, but also some very positive feedback and enthusiasm about the film - The overall picture is that it…

Canal Digital and Al Pitcher

Over the last month or so I've been working on a few scripts for Al Pitcher and Canal Digital.

The brief was: Al Pitcher tries out Swedish things - the twist being that the things he tried out…

I was once a sexy elk....

Last week Facebook was kind enough to remind me of my stint as a sexy elk for Väderstad. So I decided to update the demos and clips on the voice page of my website with a couple of new…

A UK TV commercial

If you live in the UK and watch Sky TV then you may have heard my voice recently. For the benefit of everyone else, here are the ads that I did the voiceover for. 

Enjoy!

My trip to Vallastaden - Prelude

The future is now. 

The future was never about space travel, or ray guns that shrank people, or flying monkeys. The future was always about voice-activated toasters and robot dogs chewing up newspapers. It was about the mundane made…

Pilot film

For the last few months I've been working on a film project with stand up comedian, Al Pitcher. I can't go into too much detail about it yet, but needless to say, it's been loads of fun so far…

The Last Laugh

I watched this short film today as I procrastinated before taking on the tasks of writing invoices and tidying up. And I thought it was brilliant.

The film takes place in the dusty dressing room of a Variety theatre…

Two very different voiceovers

I recorded two voiceovers this week. Two voiceovers that couldn't have been more different from each other. Both fun, both rewarding, but they were two jobs that couldn't have been further apart from each other in terms of style.
