For all who wish to see me, and my comedy 'talents' on ITV1, it's this Thursday night, (the 17th) 00:25 (technically Friday). Shoot the Writers. Set the video now.

Afterwards, please vote for me. ;o)

Having never seen Anglia Soccer Night I couldn't really say. I'm sure they're just as bad as each other though.

Ah Writewords, my other online hiding place.

Shoot the Writers is a low budget ITV1 sketch show produced by Tony Hart's former caretaker Mr Bennett.

Last series they used three hundred different writers, and I had a few sketches appear.

This year they cut that down to 60, and asked each writer to send them a video intro.

I shot mine by the cannon near Ely cathedral, and made a fantastic gag, which I'm willing to bet that they cut.

So then four of my sketches appear. Smutty ones too, that lower the tone.

At the end of the show a vote opens, with the winner going through to the semi-finals.

Winner in the finals gets membership to the Writer's Guild, and an introduction to a literary agent.

If I get this far I have a comedy sketch show pilot to show him finished already, I'm working on a sitcom pilot (first draft complete, plus ideas for future episodes/ series) I might have enough of my comedy footballing novel completed too.

I've just got to do all I can to let people know, so that they can vote for me.

As such, I've just had a photographer shoot me for the local paper. Should go out tomorrow, then everyone will see me, and know it's on.

I do a Google search for it, scroll a few matches down, and I see our beloved Meka's name (which I recognise because of Fantasy Football, not because I'm stalking him) on some Writewords article.

Video intro, eh? Wear a sharp suit and knock 'em dead, kid.
