My friend Jamie co-wrote and directed this comedy web series and asked me to guest in an episode. Naturally I encourage you to watch the whole series, but I’m in Episode 5 which unsurprisingly makes it the best one.
Here’s the latest performance I did at Liars’ League in Feb. This was a great story about a woman who falls in love with Daddy Pig from Peppa Pig. Sadly the video is audio only for the first few seconds and I was suffering from a virus which went on for 4 weeks rendering my voice a little unreliable, but the crowd are great and I think it worked pretty well!

Here’s me on stage with Jacob Edwards and Joz Norris for Jacob’s new live show which he kindly asked me to be a part of, playing his sidekick, Leonard.
I was in Episode 2 of Series 2 of Simon Callow’s sitcom The Rebel recently on Gold (15th November, repeated 17th). I believe it’s still on catch up but I’m not 100% how to go about it if I’m honest. I’m very happy with the way it turned out and I have very positive memories of working with Mr Callow and the rest of the cast and crew. I played a ticket inspector who argues with Simon Callow’s character before being forcefully pushed into the train toilet. I do, however, get my own back…
Well well well. So I just spent 3 weeks shooting the Criminal Audition, where I played the character of William. I posted about this film back in November 2014 when I was due to have a little cameo, and appeared in the comic crowdfunding video. You may remember of course that I was in the original play back in 2011(!). Anyway, fast forward 3 years, major script rewrites, production changes, character recasting… and here I am playing one of the leads. I’m very grateful to Luke Kaile and Sam Gridley, and the rest of the team, for casting me in this great film where I had some incredibly enjoyable scenes getting to flex some different acting muscles. It’s also great that Luke has finally managed to get his film made after a lot of hard work. I look forward to seeing the final results, which are being edited as we speak. There’s me preparing to do some “serious acting” in that photo.
So here it is! A couple of days shooting in Bucharest with a great crew of about 70 I think, and roughly a similar amount of extras has led to this piece of work that I’m very proud of! Clearly a very technical shoot with far less visual effects than you might think, we filmed all of that in different locations or sets (as opposed to just using a blue screen – they really built that catwalk, that was a real pool, and they really smashed that car windscreen.) The hardest part was trying to walk at the same speed in every scene while not looking where I’m going and delivering subtlety different lines for different versions. But anyway, I think it’s turned out great. Phil the director, Ed the DOP and Nick the producer were great to work with as were all the Romanian cast and crew. The guys from Topcashback were on set too and were lovely as always. They talk about the ad on their blog here, and director Phil Hawkins discusses the shoot on his website here.
Hey everyone, here’s the first music video for my new thing Rich Keeble & The More Accomplished Musicians. The song is called You Took My Stuff and is from our self-titled album! It stars my friend Ben Green as well as the band members. Full credits are in the YouTube description.
I was back at Liars’ League on Tuesday night for their Heads & Tails event, performing “Mustard Moon” by Sarah Evans, a rather touching story that seemed to go down very well with the audience and actually won the first prize. They said I “read the hell out of it”, which was nice.
