Spooky Shenanigans

28 Oct

Hellooooooooooo!

 

It’s Halloween this Friday and Giant Burger are playing a ghoulish gig at Paper Dress Vintage in Shoreditch, alongside The Indelicates and Night Flowers.

Here’s the Facebook event page for those who like that sort of thing: https://www.facebook.com/events/777046239025318/?sid_reminder=4185645174132572160

 

Performing at Jester Jesters' Puppetry Night

Performing at Jester Jesters’ Puppetry Night

I’ve been doing a fair ol’ bit of stand-up lately, including a rather delightful puppetry themed night yesterday at Jester Jesters (hence Sooty) and I’ve got a lot of spots coming up before the year is through. Look at the Stand Up page for full listings.

 

Hopefully see you at something soon!

Hello all,

I’m very excited to let you know that my band Giant Burger have put out a new record, it’s a jam-packed 7-inch blue vinyl with gloriously lurid artwork by CM Carter.

You can hear it below and order it from Bandcamp – either on it’s own or bundled with our previous record for a discounted price.

Many thanks,

Owain

Hello there,

A chap who produced a fair few of the films I used to make with Carl Morris has been interviewed on a podcast. They’ve uploaded two episodes with him so far, and it looks like there might be more to follow.

You can listen to (and download) them here: https://soundcloud.com/film-talk-podcast

Here’s a snap of the producer – Mike West – with the podcast’s host, Benjamin Carey.

Sublet

31 Jul

Hello there,

 

Earlier this year I did some “acting” in a film by my friend Ellen Waddell. It’s called ‘Sublet’ and rather than tell you what it’s all about I’ll just suggest that you watch it here:

All the best,

Rewind

20 Feb

Hello you!

Hope your 2014 is going well so far? Mine’s been jam-packed with all manner of nonsense.

I’ve been doing a fair few stand-up gigs, and you can see which ones are yet to come on the Stand Up page by clicking here.

The band also has some gigs coming up, and you can get a full run down of those at our website.

We’re going to be recording some new material soon and releasing it unto the world, which is a perfect time to give you a friendly poke and suggest you pick up a copy of our old 7-inch vinyl record Trapped in Egypt, which you can get here:

I’ve also been writing, as always, and have popped a few short stories online since the year began which can all be read hither:

I hope you continue to have a lovely year and there’ll be more updates from me as, and when, things happen.

All the best!

Stories For Homes Paperback Launched!

18 Dec
Stories For Homes book launch

Stories For Homes book launch (I’m on the far right)

Following on from the e-book version, the paperback of Stories For Homes has been released.

To celebrate there was a launch party at the Bookseller Crow in Crystal Palace, where I got a chance to meet a fair few of the other contributors to the book, alongside Sally Swingewood and Debi Alper who had the idea and created this wonderful anthology. Which, a mere twelve days after being printed, has raised over £1,500 for Shelter.

The book has become a Best Seller on Amazon’s anthology charts and I heartily implore you to pick up a copy, as all the proceeds will go to Shelter, which is a great charity helping those with housing issues.

Buy the paperback here!

Plagiarism

3 Oct

Hello there,

The wonderful open mic stand-up comedy night Jester Jesters had its 4th ever Plagiarism Night on Monday 30th September, for which I decided to do jokes written by primary school children.

I have a friend who works as a primary school teacher and, despite telling them about a month in advance, they finally got me a selection of jokes together at lunchtime that very day (hence the clipboard).

Anyway, Jonathan Hearn of Jester Jesters was kind enough to film and upload the clip to Youtube and you can watch it here:

Check out the Stand-Up page for details of all my upcoming stand-up gigs.

All the best,

Owain

Stories For Homes

9 Aug

Hello there,

 

I contributed a short story to an anthology of writing called Stories For Homes, it’s available now on the Kindle, and all proceeds go to Shelter, a housing and homelessness charity:

http://www.amazon.com/Stories-for-Homes-ebook/dp/B00E8767XU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376054330&sr=8-1&keywords=Stories+For+Homes

There should be a hard copy version coming out in due course, but if you’re one of those e-reader types (I won’t judge you) then you can get your mittens on the virtual version now. It’s a great book for a great cause.

 

Many thankingyous,

Owain
