So here is something I didn’t think I’d be saying.
I am the 2019 Manford’s comedy club new act of the year.
I’ve met Jason Manford. And I’m going to be playing Manford’s clubs. And I’ve won an award. For comedy.
The whole thing has been totally surreal to be honest.
I don’t want to be overly modest because I have been working hard at comedy – I’m constantly writing and testing new jokes and I feel confident in my 10 minutes.
But the other acts who made it through to the final were incredible! So much so that I genuinely never thought I stood a chance.
So I’m proud of what I’ve achieved and honored but I’m also aware that there’s a lot more work to do. People might start to expect more of me now, and I know I expect more of myself, so no time to stop.
It is a bit exciting though…
