Yesterday I realised that I’ve been combining the two very different stories of Puss in Boots and Dick Whittington together, for years. My children, who are much younger than me, and who are cats, were completely flabbergasted and wouldn’t stop going on about it. I defended myself by saying, “So? At least I can drive, which is much more useful and important than not getting two stories that involve cats mixed up.”
Can Whittingdale, Hunt, Johnson, Trump, Goldsmith and Jong Un all just fuck off now please? They’ve had their fun. It’s time for them to go now.
A BOOK FOR HER – THE TOUR
Hey, YOU GUYS, thanks so much for coming to the tour show and for buying books afterwards. It’s been truly wonderful meeting you and chatting. You’ve all been ace. The only slightly odd date was Liverpool, where I ended up in a series of bizarre situations involving Ringo Starr, fascism, a very confident, inebriated man in a lift and paying for a wee.

HUGE APOLOGIES TO EXETER AND SHOREHAM – SHOW CANCELLATIONS
I’m so sorry if you had tickets for Exeter and Shoreham. I had to be picked up in a car from my Premier Inn room in Canterbury, given a massive bucket and driven home, where I stayed very still for 2 whole days. This was easily THE most violent vomiting virus I have ever had. We are currently trying to re-schedule these dates so bear with us.

The funniest person IN THE WORLD is coming to London with her incredible book SHRILL and I’m going to be asking her about it. I am so excited about this guys, I can’t tell you. What an incredible privilege to talk to such an important and hilarious human being. Here’s the link.
STAND UP FOR HER – DVD – LONDON RECORDING – 24TH MAY HOXTON HALL, 6PM AND 8PM
Please. I am begging you. If you like my stuff please apply for free tickets for this. I think you have to mention a code word or something. The code word is CODE. I don’t want people who apply for game shows or whatever nabbing all the free tickets and then looking like they’re going to be physically sick. I can get that at home. Here’s the link.
