Mad Men And Bad Men is nearly here…


My new book is out on February 5th. I am very excited and a bit nervous. It was reviewed in The Guardian this week. The reviewer was generally fair I thought. Have a read. I’m doing loads of stuff around the launch, with articles in The Guardian, Shortlist, Esquire and FHM. Also, the book is serialised over two weekends in the Mail On Sunday in late Jan/early Feb. But don;t bother with any of that, just buy it here and read it for yourself. Then eat it.

Latest dispatch for The Big Issue


The Big Issue column has gone a bit off road in recent months. I’ve stopped bothering to write about TV because I don’t watch enough of it to justify the title. So I’ve just sort of been banging on about my marriage, fatherhood, work and all the rest of it. I think it’s an improvement to be honest. Anyway, if you could give a flying fuck, catch up on recent efforts here

David Sullivan Interview On TalkSport


So I co-hosted The Sports Bar on talkSPORT the other night and, while I was in the middle of banging on about the usual problems at West Ham, who should call up the studio but Hammers co-chairman David Sullivan. As  a Hammer myself, it was an exciting opportunity to ask the man presiding over another summer of characteristic pandemonium: ‘Seriously dude, what the fuck?’ But, you know, in a more polite way. Because I am a pro. Listen back to the remarkable interview here…

It’ll Go To Penalties – World Cup Podcast


Man, I’ve been busy finishing my book (Mad Men And Bad Men, published by Faber in January 2015 if I get my finger out and finish the bastard thing any time soon) and being editor in chief of Comedy Central’s new online channel. Which is hilarious by the way. But why would you give a fuck about my schedule, right? I mean, you don’t come and bother me with your shit. I’m sorry, this is all coming across as self regarding and obnoxious. So let’s just leave it at this: I’ve been hosting an AWESOME world cup podcast for the last few weeks with an array of brilliant guests including Tim Lovejoy, David Araanovich and even Sepp Blatter himself. I should have mentioned this sooner. But, like I say, who cares? No-one’s reading this anyway. Hello mum. Don’t listen to this, it will confuse and bore you.
