The end of the year is upon us, and what a curious year it has been. As we look back on the ups, downs, and betweens, our talented performers and engaged audience stand out. What better way therefore than to end the year with a Christmas Special celebrating the performers and our Zoom audience from the 2020 shows?
If you would like to come along you can register now to be in the Zoom room.
For this show we have invited back performers from each of the 2020 “What’s Going On In Your Head?“.
I’ll be giving out accolades for the best Christmas outfits and asking the audience and performers, “What goes on in their head at Christmas?”.
If you are going to be joining us in the audience and would like to send us your answer to the question “What goes on in your head at Christmas?” please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can read some of them out during the show and we can share them on our social media.
Over the years I have made many films forr a diverse set of clients. Find out more on the EntertainingTV website.
I’m hosting the next “What’s Going On In Your Head?”show this Sunday (20th Sep). We’ve a wonderful line up of comedy, music and spoken word and the theme is neurodiversity. Sign up for free at bit.ly/WGOIYH6 to be part of the Zoom audience to cheer the performers on, take part in the quizzes and ask questions.
With Covid 19 halting our live shows, I’m not hosting them online. Come and join me live from my living room!
I’m hosting the next What’s Going On In Your Head? show in London on 24 March 2020 and the theme we have chosen to explore is mania.
What it is like to be on a creative high, to have boundless energy, heightened perceptions and to feel like you can do everything and anything? Do extreme highs enable people to access a whole new level of creativity? Van Gogh, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Sylvia Plath, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikowsky are oft quoted as great geniuses known to experience extreme mood swings. Waiting on the other side is a low that is capable of going as deep as it went high. Is that a price worth paying for the highs?
If you have lived experienced of bipolar disorder and would be interested in performing at the show please get in touch. Performance slots are suited to musicians, vocalists, poets and spoken word artists, dancers and stand-up comedians.
If you are interested in attending the event as an audience member please get in touch too.
On 12th November 2019 I am hosting the monthly “Let’s Talk About …” event in London. We will be debating the dangers of social media.
If you would like to attend click here to be added to the guest list.
The panelists include Dr Paul Marsden, psychologist, Jonathan Garner founder of Mind Over Tech and Aisling Ní Chonaire from the Behavioural Insights Team. This should be a lively and thought-provoking discussion.
The day before the event I am returning from filming in the US for my documentary Swipe Left For Addiction so I hope to be able to share a few clips from the rushes to help frame the discussion. An exclusive first look for those who come along!
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. The discussion will run until 9pm and for those of us who want to stay on after to chat more the club stays open until 2am. Food and drinks are available to order during the evening to keep our brains nourished.
I am making a documentary and I want to understand what it is like to be young today and how screens and technology have made your life different from my own. This is why I am looking for 15 – 22 year olds to assist me in my research by helping me understand what it is like to be young today.
To take part all you would need to do is film a series of video diaries on your phone and send them to me on What’s App. Below is a list of questions you could answer in your video diaries. It would be great if you could send me one video per question. You don’t need to answer every question, just the ones that you want to answer. And if you want to ‘freestyle’ and share anything else about what it is like to be young today, I’m all ears.
I am going to collect all the video diaries together and see what themes come through. Their primary purpose is to help me understand so I can portray an accurate picture of what it is like to be young today in the documentary. I won’t show any of the videos in the public domain or in the documentary without your permission.
If you are interested in helping me with my research please message me on What’s App using +44 7786 514 910.
