Remember when we all did that thing at Xmas? When we popped an extra selection box into our shopping trolleys and gave it to the local food bank? Felt good didn’t it?
Thanks to Jason Manford for spreading it – I think it was a cracking response, we all got some karma points.
What do you say we all do that again – with Easter Eggs?
The principle remains the same, for whatever reason (and I’m not making any political point or trying to) some kids this Easter won’t get an Easter Egg. If you as parent or a carer find yourself in the position of needing to use a food bank, there’s little chance you’ll be able to get the kids an Easter Egg.
We can help, we can all just buy an extra one, gather them together at work or school run or cubs or whatever and someone can drop them all off.
Google your post code and food bank – you’ll be surprised how close your nearest is. The Trussell Trust are just one organisation amongst many and they are here http://www.trusselltrust.org/map and they are also running a ‘donate the cost of an egg’ campaign if that’s more up your street.
Locally in Manchester the superheroes at Barakah Food Aid will always take donations (check them out – they are incredible people)
Nice one and thanks fellow human beings xx

Been busy – was on MUTV on Thursday that’s David May and Helen Evans in front of the green screen. I took my mate Danny Mcloughlin that’s me and him a bit further down the page getting giddy because we’d just seen LVG.
Decent enough weekend – weird bits aside, (there was a woman in Clitheroe who accused me of being racist because I said her town was the whitest I’d ever seen based on the faces in the room I could see – she didn’t like me but hey ho) had fun and made people laugh.
Got a belter on tonight – it’s me, Rob Deering, Johhny Vegas, Sarah Millican and Mick Ferry doing a gig for Parkinsons at the Comedy Store in Manchester. It’ll be brilliant I’m sure.
I was thinking this weekend about how far I should be pushing myself online and that in terms of trying to sell tickets etc. It works like this I think –
1. I think I’m funny and a good comedian so I book myself out on tour.
2. The venues will tweet and facebook a bit, stick it on their websites etc. I retweet that – but how often?
3. I need to tell as amany people as possible that I’m coming to their town. How do I do that without annoying people?
4. I can mention it on Fighting Talk when I’m on or with Colin if I do Talk Sport, on my own podcast, but I’m not likely to be on the Jonathon Ross show or Graham Norton soon. Or am I? Who knows.
5. I have a fair few thouand people that follow – so I can tell them? But how often? When do people get pissed off with the incessant plugging? Why do they follow me in the first place? It’s because they think I’m funny I suppose…
6. I don’t know really, I’ve started making a list and now I’m committed to it.
7. I like the number 7.
8. I’m on tour lots and I need to sell tickets. It’s going to be my best stand up ever.
9. Come and see it in Edinburgh first if you want
10. Tell everyone. Please.
See you soon
