Coming soon to!

This time last year I performed at a couple of Robin Ince’s Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows.

Look, there I am now. Under some stage lights that are conspiring to make me look ginger.

Well, the second night was filmed for posterity – which is bloody typical as I had a much better gig on the first night. I know, I know, excuses schmexcuses – and is now available as a DVD from

So, you know, buy it and that.

Not because I’m on it (unless you’re my mum) but because properly good people like Stewart Lee and Richard Herring are on there. And the money goes to charidee.

I won’t be performing during this year’s run. I couldn’t make the dates I was offered.

I saw Robin last night at the launch party of the Atheist’s Guide to Christmas and he kindly asked if I could do any of the other dates, but I’m pretty much back to back between now and Christmas and even if I weren’t, it’s a bit late for Robin to have to mess around with his running orders.

I also got to thank him for all his help during the Face of Kinder competition.

The massive spike in my blog hits that you can see here:

That was down to Robin Ince and Peter Serafinowicz circulating the link one evening over on Twitter.

And of course as we all know, it paid off!

Anyway, one last quick thing before I sign off.

I am apparently going to be on Radio 5 on Friday talking about my Amazon reviews.

I’m not sure of the details yet, but will post them here when I have them.

Your amazon reviews are inspirational!

P.S. Thought of you when I saw Paul Ross in ASDA at the weekend...

Good news (for me).

I just received this email from the maker of the DVD:

"We actually filmed Thursday's show too - but only on two cameras, so I considered it a bit technically inferior
- but as you were really cool about us using your Friday show even though you didn't like it, I took the liberty of using your Thursday performance in the final version."

I am going to watch you, ginger or not! x

Madam Miaow said...

Ginger, maybe. But did you have eyelashes?

Christina Martin said...

Catie - Thanks. I still haven't been able to watch myself. I cringe too much.

Madam Miaow - My nan is a redhead. And thus my brown hair does have red highlights. Thankfully my lashes are dark though! Sorry to any ginger people reading. I likes being a brunette is all!
