2 Dangerous Things A Year

Every year I resolve to do two new dangerous things (by my own definition of dangerous.) One of my goals for this year was to learn guitar and singing, then to perform both in public – with a view to developing a new show incorporating some comedy songs. This is my first public performance with some singing students so the audience wasn’t really expecting any comedy. Pretty happy with it as a platform upon which to build.

Comedy Festival – The Hyper Super Mega Ulitimate Show

I haven’t posted a blog for a while. Been busy. In the training and speaking games, January’s summer means a bit of a lull in face-to-face client activity so, for me, I invest much of the month in writing. My books, whilst constantly researched, have usually come into physical existence thanks to the magic of days with fewer interruptions and the biggest clump of those are in January.  This month though, I haven’t been writing accessible business books, I’ve been drafting a one-hour solo show for the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in Auckland in May. I’ve done solo shows before but they’ve generally been compilations of the previous year’s best bits. With my ‘grown-up’ / ‘day-job’/ ‘real-work’ being so successful last year, I didn’t write and perform much new comedy so, this time, my show has been written from the ground up. This is one of my two dangerous’ things a year for 2015.

‘The Hyper Super Mega Ultimate Show’ is my first since 2013’s ‘The Grin Reaper.’ I’m currently talking with a charity about making my opening two nights fundraisers for a couple of their causes.

Stay healthy. Go be active. Remember, sweat is just fat crying.
