Funny Laundry at the 1st Comedy International Conference in London

It's not often I make a song and dance about myself but I thought that this time I may as well and share this tidbit about my work with everyone on EF seeing as it's still my main outlet for publicity after 5 years of working in Switzerland (all thanks to Mark Fyvie - never forgotten!!!) and I think it may be of interest to some of you out there.

International English Stand Up Comedy is a brand new global market and I was invited onto the first panel of the day at the very first Comedy International Conference which was held in September 2010 in London as part of the Greenwich Comedy Festival to discuss the creation of the market here in Switzerland. Recognised as being one of the few people in the world that is making this new area of the comedy business happen on the ground I gave a detailed account to my peers about establishing these shows over the last 4/5 years and the ongoing situation of handling such an entity in a non-native English speaking nation - a brief part of the discussion can be seen/heard in this clip. I hope some of you might find it of interest!

.....and as I'm here I shall now shamelessly remind anyone reading to hurry-up and go and buy your tickets for next week's ground-breaking shows with Stephen K Amos and special guest Joe Rowntree in Zurich, Geneva and Basel that will celebrate the launch of Radio Frontier - Switzerland's first english language radio station to be owned and run by native english language speakers - at Uptown Geneva (and they have told me that they will be crossing the Röstigraben into the Tüütsch region in the not too distant future!!!) plus the very first International English Stand Up Comedy event at Zurich's famous Kaufleuten and an extra special club show for all you Baslers at our regular venue Kuppel.

Please keep supporting these shows, they only exist because of you and I rely entirely upon your continued attendances to keep them going - "you" being everyone here on EF that supports them as well as all the internationals and swiss anglophones I have met on my fortnightly tours around the country over the last 5 years. Thanks to each and every one of you and hard as it might be sometimes in today's world - keep on laughing!!

TTFN

Guy

Re: Funny Laundry at the 1st Comedy International Conference in London

Hi guys, just wanted to say that I went a few times last winter to their Lausanne gigs. These boys really try and bring quality comedy to Switzerland, hats of to them.

The funniest was this young Scot's boy who looked like Macaulay Kulkin...he was absolutely hilarious!! Wish I could remember his name, def a star of the future.

Any of you get a chance to go, I would highly recommend it. 1 thing I would advise you not to do is to check out the YouTube vids they post to advertise up coming events...I found out to my dismay that very often the act is a carbon copy of what you will be paying to see...az nem yó!

Re: Funny Laundry at the 1st Comedy International Conference in London

Daniel Sloss was the chp and yes, definitely one to watch! He's appearing at the London Comedy Store's upcoming "Best of the newcomers" night in a week or so. Not sure you're right about the Youtube clips being carbon copies though, anyway I put those up mainly for the benefit of the non-UK and Swiss peeps that may be interested in coming as they won't be as familiar with the acts as perhaps the Brit internationals might be!

Thanks for the heads-up though! Much appreciated! Hope to be back in Lausanne next season, let you know soonest!
