BBC One, Baby!

I was played on BBC One Radio! I just found official online confirmation!

Maybe this will help me convince the comedy clubs over there that Brits think I'm funny.

Unless they played it as a serious piece. That would weird.

At any rate, with playing in Montreal and getting played on BBC radio, I'm having quite the international summer so far.

yeah you were ... heard it driving home from Lincoln (that's the original one). Made me laugh so very much. Loved it.
So when are you coming here? We need you.

You don't need to convince me, but I don't own a comedy club. Sorry!

I could set one up in the garden shed. No? Bum. ;)

I heard it back when it was on BestOfYoutube and loved it. I think I've seen just about everything of you that's online, which is a shame now because there's nothing left to watch!

Any chance of putting more of your recent stuff on YouTube? Or, y'know, just actually come over to Britain so I can see the live show...

ofcourse the brits will love you. Remember brits laugh at everything because they don't have a sense of humour...the stiff upper lip unfortunately permeates all of the soul. It is so easy to make them laugh and comedians here are sooooo dull yet many of them get sold out crowds, look up people like lee evans...I would personally need to be paid and anaesthestised to attend one of his gigs but hey who am I when the british public flock to see him in their droves.

If you can try and get links with the Edinburgh festival, get one showing there and it will help you crack old blighty. there was an article in the times i think, where you could be a judge at the edinburgh festival for a couple of weeks but you have to write like an essay or something to get a place on the panel. that could be a small toe in the door....

Go break a leg!

Note to you from a Brit/American who appreciates wierd comedy:

If you're going to be on BBC radio, I would advise that you try to get on BBC Radio 4 instead of BBC1, cuz BBC1 is a very serious radio channel.

Hi, are you going to play in NYC during the summer? I am a spanish girl who is going to be there from mid july until october and I would really love to see you on stage. I just saw your Pachabel thing and I loved it.

Si? I mean yes, I'll be playing NYC in July, doing a full set at a theater show on July 28th! It's posted on my myspace at the moment: myspace.com/robparavonian

Welcome to the Radio 1 club! I hope you get paid your royalties - I'm still waiting for mine after four years...

Contrary to what Olivia wrote, the digital spoken word channel BBC7 acts as a feeder into Radio Four, so you'd be better off aiming anything at them. The BBC is also in the process of overhauling all of their online comedy output.

Yvette is right - there's public representation on the voting panel of the Eddies / Iffies (nee Perrier Award) but I can't remember exactly how they're recruited.

Anyway, congrats on getting that all important UK play. He's a very nice man, that Colin Murray. Wish he'd play my album...

Best,

Richard (Dogs Must Be Carried)

I'd like you to play over here too. Does anyone know a way we could could convince the comdey clubs?

We could try writing endless letters to the daily mail in the linguistic stylings of the 50yr old corporate execs that usually complain about speed camaras, but I don't think that would work. :-(

As a swede living in London I can tell you that both my english friends as well the swedish thinks your great.

So give Comedy Store in London, UK or perhaps China Teatern, Stockholm, Sweden a call and Im sure they will book you up with a luxury suite, champagne and massages with happy endings...

or perhaps you'll just get to borrow a tent and get a free drink, but hey... Who likes champagne anyway? =)

China Teatern i Sthlm is actually doing a comedy summer right now with people like Stephen Lynch and Pablo Fransisco performing and after seen them live and heard your stuff Im pretty sure I'll see you there soon.

It is unbelievable how true your 'Pachelbel Rant ' actually is! I loved it! As a cellist, I can completely sympathise with the whole song. Pachelbel's Canon does follow you everywhere and it is true that carrying the cello around you are like 'a wounded gazelle', as you seem to invite comments from people such as "Do you have a body in there?" as though they are not the 500th person to say that.
I hope you play a show in Britain soon!
