Hiya Babes! It's me, Andrew, writing in the first person... I wasn't going to do a new show this year. Honestly, wasn't. Then I ended up going to 3 funerals and a wedding and my ex-girlfriend married another stand-up comedian who looks a bit like me but is not me and life just kept getting weirder. Now I have to talk about it. So let's explore a theory I have about JK Rowling, something I ate in an Amsterdam museum and the reason I got asked to leave Ann Summers together. I'm going to go stand on stage for about an hour, in a dead man's shirt (don't worry, he don't want it back)....
