Hello you. Thanks for dropping by. So what’s news? A big thank you if you came to Concorde 2 last Friday for ‘Dot Cotton’s Rock n’ Roll Bingo.’ Three brilliant bands, DJ’s and Dot Cotton herself, fag in hand, hosting the bingo; a surreal night and a huge success.

It didn’t come without its hiccups, namely we ran out of Bingo cards (thanks Moulsecomb Bingo Club for coming through) and with an hour to go there was no Dot. This could have ended in a riot but she duly turned up, almost regal-like, looked amazing and worked the crowd brilliantly.

She refused a hotel for the night (she can’t smoke in hotels) and she loved her rider of a bottle of red and a packet of fags. Not only that, she  stayed on to sign autographs and have pictures for over an hour and a half after the event, to confirm that she is indeed, a legend.

We raised over £1,000 for the MS Society and my friend Jennie Flynn, who suffers from the disease but more to the point we gave her a night she’ll never forget. We’re going to be back next year, with another celebrity guest hosting the Bingo and we’re already starting to approach potential successors to Dot’s crown of Bingo Queen. Watch this space.

We’ve got some great guests popping in to Juice Towers over the next couple of weeks, after recent visits from Maverick Sabre, James Morrison and Sugababes.  Frankie and Rochelle from The Saturdays are swinging by and Professor Green shall be gracing us with his presence the week after. Word.

There’s a whole load of Latest TV documentaries coming out over the week in a series of ‘Guy does..’ including the Hoosiers, UK Air Guitar Championships and Dot Cotton’s ‘Rock n’ Roll Bingo.’  The full Shakedown film which I co-hosted with the lovely Sarah Powell is also imminent. I’ll post these on facebook, twitter and on trees and fences in due course. My next documentary will feature a Brighton comedian and we hope to start shooting that next month.

On the comedy front, I’m hosting a whole load of stand-up gigs over the coming weeks. I’ve got a biggie at The Loft tomorrow night with a secret headliner (it’s not Jimmy Carr), Comedy Cooler at the Alibi on the 7th, Express Comedy on the 12th in Portslade and I’ve been asked to be the permanent host of CULT comedy at the Foragers in Hove, which I gladly accepted after being offered a goat. First date at CULT comedy is on October 25th.

'You want Taxi?'

I’m really enjoying hosting the corporate sectors at the Albion. I’m normally in the East Stand during home games but recently got transferred (on a free) to the West for the Palace game and got to meet current and ex-players, along with Sir. Des Lynam, who is the only person in the world that can make a moustache look cool (apart from Hitler and Magnum P.I). It really is a magnificent place to be right now and I’ve no doubt that the club will be in the Premiership sooner rather than later. Good times at the Amex.

That’s my news. I’m going to the level now as a fun fair has descended. I shall be back after I have ruled the dodgems. I am King.
