If you’ve enjoyed any of the jokes I’ve put online, you’d absolutely make my day with a donation.

I don’t have an agent, and I’m not a super-famous guy. I’m just a fool trying to make a living doing what he loves – making variable-quality entertainment, and giving it directly to the people who inexplicably like it.

I don’t even put adverts on anything I do (“anti-capitalism! Sponsored by Coca Cola!”) – the only way I make money from this nonsense is because brilliant and wonderful folks like you pay for it directly.

So, if you’ve liked my stand-up shows, podcasts, or YouTube episodes, and you’d like to support my quest to make more… well, you’ve come to the right place!

Click that donate button below, and do a very kind deed indeed. Thank you very much! 😀


THREE WAYS TO DONATE

 

PAYPAL

PayPal is the easiest way for you to donate – just click the link below!

I’d love it if you’d leave a little note to say hi, and to tell me which of my things it was that made you want to donate – it’s always nice to know what inspired people to give!

PATREON

Click here to go to my Patreon page, where you can support me with a tiny donation every month.

Patreon is great: it means I get paid a monthly salary by you and everyone else who chips in – and knowing how much money I’m getting a month means I can actually plan my life, which is a joy!

BANK TRANSFER

Want your money to go further?

Both PayPal and Patreon take a cut of your donation. Anything between 5% and 15%!

Whether it’s a one-off donation or a small monthly recurring act of kindness, if you want me to get 100% of your donation, email me, and I’ll give you my bank details:

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

As you can imagine, making radical left-wing anti-establishment stand-up comedy is a real cash cow, and in reality I’m a millionaire.

TRUTH TIME: You can probably guess that the commercial viability of the stuff I make is, at best, precarious. It’s almost certainly never going to be picked up by TV or radio, despite its Undeniable Quality™. So basically, when you donate, you’re helping directly to support me by paying me a wage to do what I do. Which is bloody lovely, when you think about it!

But not only that: the things I create actually cost quite a lot of money to make. Pro-grade camera, lights, microphones, audio recorders, software, web hosting, and the sheer time it takes to make my episodes: it’s not cheap. So when you donate, you’re not only helping me to eat and pay rent; you’re also donating towards the costs of making it all happen!

(Plus, you’re even helping me to break even on the other, hilariously large costs of doing comedy – like the train journeys, paying a camera crew to record my stand-up shows, and the £3,000 costs for doing the Edinburgh Fringe!! Yep, you read that right. Rent, ads, flyers, train travel – there’s plenty of opportunities for debt, and your donations help to make it manageable.)

So, if you fancy donating: thank you very much! And hey: if you can’t afford it: no worries! I’m just happy that you gave my jokes a go.
