New Theatre Show in Development

cropped-immi-pic-customs-3-10-lifted-up-small1.jpeg

I’m very excited to announce that preparations are well underway for a new show due to tour from May 2018.

In 1917 Chaplin released his short film “The Immigrant”, a story of people optimistically arriving in America to start a new life.

One hundred years later, in 2017, America introduced the most controversial immigration policy in the nation’s history.

I am adapting Chaplin’s short film and developing new material to represent the experiences of today’s immigrants to America.

Look out for previews of material in the next few months.

A Year of The Silly Seasons

Can you be jealous of a film?

The Silly Seasons has been seen all over the world this year. In fact, it’s been to New York and Minnesota – my top two places that I’ve always wanted to visit!

It has been an incredible surprise that film festivals have scheduled it.
Thanks to all the bookers, and thanks to everyone who has given me your support throughout the year.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s not too late!

Here’s the link to the official site – where you can see the trailer… and maybe do some shopping!  ;OD

New Slapstick Films are Go!

It’s been three years since I challenged myself to fulfil a long held dream.

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to make a series of films inspired by my heroes. Jacques Tati, Chaplin, Jerry Lewis, Norman Wisdom and the Marx Brothers have all given me so much happiness, that I wanted to do the same.

With filming and editing technology becoming so easy to use, it became an achievable prospect. And in the last few months, the emergence of sites allowing you to sell downloads easily has meant that I can now offer each episode at a price comparable with the big distributors.

So, if you can, please share the link with friends and family – and maybe even download an episode or two!

It’s been an incredible few years and I look forward to your feedback over the coming months.

For now, here’s the official webpage. I hope you enjoy it!
