OLD COMIC - NEW ACT
(Lion's Den - 2009)

I may have lost my hair, but I haven't lost my wit!

In June 2009, after totally re-inventing his comedy act, 'A.J' launched himself on the circuit of London Alternative Comedy venues. To date he has worked 'The Lion's Den' (twice); 'Pear-Shaped in Fitzrovia' (twice); 'Party Piece;' 'The Rye Wit,' and 'Downstairs at the King's Head.' Although he is one of the oldest comedian on that circuit, he has been very well received on each occasion, and can't wait to do more.

LAUREL & HARDY LECTURER/PRESENTER

'A.J' is a recognised authority on the lives and careers of Laurel and Hardy, and his lectures have been the highlight of many Literary-Luncheons, Film Festivals, theatre shows, and fan club Conventions all over the UK, and in Europe. His audio and visual lecture/presentations can be tailored to last from one to two hours, and are always punctuated by witty ad-libbing, observations, and inter-action with his audience. What most people find remarkable is that he uses no notes - but catch him out if you can!
