According to the experts, when you have children regular date nights with your partner are the key to a successful relationship. Forget communication, mutual love and respect or not marrying a dick; apparently the secret to a happy and healthy relationship is to go on a date. At flipping night. But according to me (expert on nothing) this is rubbish. Here is why...

I'm on a date with an ex! When we broke up, I dated LITERALLY well over a hundred guys. (In the space of five years) Some for a few months, others for one glass of awkwardness... but none of them quite lived up to the infamous ex. Going back out with an ex is like trying outfits on a Friday night out with the gals. You always end up wearing the first outfit you tried on!

I'd tried many different types of pants. Cotton pants, seamless pants, but, no the answer is no pants. Of course it is! How can something rub against something else, if you take the something else away! Ditch your knickers ladies, and you won't need that vaseline, trust me.

How To Look Good Dead

I was told once that the best way to know a city is to get lost in it. I can't say if this is a universal truth but with my truly terrible sense of direction I've had plenty of chances to put it to the test. It was just this Monday that I made my favourite finding to date.

Why Do I Comedy?

Xavier Toby

I do it because I think every single human being is capable of wonderful things, and I don't think anyone is stupid. I just think that a lot of us, myself included, don't know enough and if we were more thoughtful, looked deeper into issues and knew more, we could as a society be making better decisions and live in a far better world.

On Depression - A Suggestion

What helps if you have depression is realising that you are not alone, that this 'illness' actually exists like any other physical illness; you are not making it up and you are not some self-indulgent, self-obsessed narcissist who's looking for pity or an excuse not show up at work or school.

This week I embraced padded shorts. Needless to say I was shocked to learn what design choices were used on the inside. I mean, basing it on a David Bowie costume is niche.

Warren United - A Sign of Things to Come for UK Animated Comedy?

OK, so ITV4 may not be the most high profile channel of them all, and Warren United may not be high profile enough to kick-start a movement towards more British animated comedies on television... but at least it's a start.

In the following short film (or 'film short' for those of you), my comedic partner Andy King and I (almost named after a popular musical) present a warm tribute to this time of times. Pray silence then for 'King Dredge,' as we are called, and let us take you back to the olden days of yore. Possibly before yore, I'm not shore.

David Cameron Wants to Make You Happy

Andy Parsons | Posted 13.06.2014 | UK Comedy
Andy Parsons

David Cameron said when he came to power he wanted to improve people's happiness - that government policy was to be more focused on those things that make life worthwhile. To this end, the Cabinet Office has recently revealed which jobs in the UK give us the most satisfaction. Top of the list, of 274 job titles, is vicar; bottom of the list, is pub landlord. It is perhaps a surprise that these two jobs should be at opposite ends of the table given that they share many similarities: they both have dwindling regulars, both dish out wine and nibbles and if you spend a long time in either's establishment, you can think imaginary people are talking to you.

My ride starts at 8:30am, and finishes at 6pm. That means, that to stay abreast of the van, I must aim to average at least 10mph. Yup, I'm aiming high. All I want out of this is simply not to be rescued.

Stewart Lee: A Revolution in Standup

Julian Dutton | Posted 10.06.2014 | UK Comedy
Julian Dutton

Some artistic revolutions are only recognised in hindsight, some spotted when they're actually happening. Vasari knew he was living through a Renaissance, so did Brian Epstein. As Stewart Lee's 3rd television series comes to an end it's clear to me that nothing less than a one-man revolution in stand-up comedy has occurred.

On arrival at Kensal Green overground my much younger girlfriend (MYG) texts me a weblink to a pseudo-enlightening Telegraph piece. According to the article, Chamberlayne Road is now the "Hippest Street in Europe". Just what is it about this neighbourhood that attracts A-listers such as Jade Jagger and Daniel Craig to live there?
