I was recently invited on a podcast to discuss my latest Fringe show

A RETURN TO THE FRINGES..... A NEW SHOW
I'm on my way back to Edinburgh with a new show in tow

I'M ON RADIO 4, DON'T YOU KNOW
Myself and Alexander Bennett are appearing on Lemn Sissay's show
The weird and wonderful world of 'Dan vs Food' keeps on feeding us, now with an appearance on Radio 4. We were asked to appear on 'Lemn Sissay's Social Enterprise' to discuss the show, why we did it, and why we chose to raise money for Fareshare.
Stay up-to-date with an occasional email from me. Rest assured, it will only be relevant to creative projects I'm involved in and won't be often, as I am too lazy. Your email will never be given to a third-party. I hate parties.
