My last Sharp Pain of 2021 broadcasted on RTHK Radio 3 Dec 30 as the first item on the 123 Show! Featuring a cameo by actor Philippe Joly, this one’s a jittery one and called Caffeine Free

Double Trouble, Double Vision and Double Dutch collided today when my 3 short stories about the deranged, sleep-deprived new parents of twins were published in a spectacularly festive edition of the South China Morning Post‘s Post Magazine! It was a deranged way to end a deranged year in which pumping out deranged humor columns for RTHK Radio 3, the SCMP and the odd anthology has been the only thing keeping me SANE. The stories are a complete fabrication! I’ve only hijacked a plane once and I was SLEEPWALKING then so missed the fun part, only waking up for my arrest!

Thanks to editor Chris Wood, Dave Besseling and the SCMP artist who brought the stories to life with eye-catching illustrations! The magazine version was waaaaaayyyyy cooler, but you can still read the online version here: https://www.scmp.com/magazines/post-magazine/long-reads/article/3159075/3-terrifying-almost-true-new-parent-stories-hong

Tomorrow I’m back on recording the comedy podcast version for Sharp Pains!

Exciting news from LA: The Depressed Comedian episode of my Mental Ideas Podcast has been officially selected by the Cinemonic Entertainment Core for their 2021 Cinemonic Podcast Festival! I explore why depression is no laughing matter (or is it?) with American cartoonist and author Larry Feign, best known in Hong Kong as the creator of the Lily Wong cartoon strip. The festival takes place Dec 15, 2021 at 7.30pm, LA time. Mental Ideas returns to RTHK in 2022 as a weekly strand of the 123 Show!

My latest humor column aired TODAY (Dec 2) on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show. Rolling in at an epic 12 mins, it’s my usual puerile humor but with a smidge of Christmas schmaltz thrown in. Sharp Pains will be back on RTHK with a riot of festive frivolity Dec 30!

This one’s a shiny one and called Secret Santa

Look out for 3 of my Sharp Pains short stories in the Long Reads section of a festive edition of the SCMP‘s Post Magazine Dec 12!

My latest humor column for RTHK Radio 3 aired Oct 28 – 48 hours later than usual, thanks to Noz spacing out (her words, not mine, as I’m in no position to call anyone out for being ‘spacey’). This means Sharp Pains will be back 48 hours sooner in November!

This one’s a scratchy one and called Cats… It’s relatively inoffensive (apart from to Cat People obvs).
