I’m now in the second year of my PhD at the University of Kent with the School of Arts.  Christ, I’m about halfway through! My focus is Stand-up Comedy, Practice as Research, which means that I perform Stand-up to inform and further my findings.  But also, because it’s loads of fun.

My working title is ‘The use of Tragedy in Stand-up Comedy: Can comedy be a useful and appropriate tool in portraying and understanding tragic and upsetting circumstances in performance?’.  My thinking is that yes, yes it can.  Jeez, I hope I’m not wrong…
