Yes I have put in some live dates for the Autumn in small venues. This will be a try-out to see if I can do a longer set of the type of material I did at the Soho Theatre earlier in the year. I'll put the tours details on the site when they're finalised, it'll basically run through October and November about twenty dates I think. I've got a few book readings coming up as well. Newbury Corn Exchange this Saturday and Windsor arts centre on the 21st. Also Welwyn Garden City on the 17th of August and Cardiff on the 25th of September.
At the moment if you go to the Telegraph website there's a very funny video of me being terrified in a Ferrari 458 at the festival of speed the weekend before last and I think there's a video of me driving a Aerial Atom as well, though I haven't looked at that yet.
I must say after a few months I really like writing for the Telegraph and they seem to like having me writing for them since they always put me on the cover of the motoring supplement. I particularly like the photo of me this Saturday with the Atom looking heroic. Plus I clearly drive a section of their readers absolutely bats with hatred judging by some of the things they post, which is also good.

Hello Dawn glad you enjoyed the book reading and its interesting to hear that you would have liked to hear more of the actual reading. Sometimes I find it hard to judge if an audience is enraptured by my words or just bored so I sometimes bail out of the reading portion a bit too soon but I'll bear your words in mind next time I feel like doing that. Still tickets for Windsor this Saturday.
Yes hopefully there will be dates in London next year, probably ten days in late Jan at the Soho Theatre. The point of this little tour is partly just to do it but also to try and see whether I can put together a 50+ minute show for that venue.
