Works in progress…

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

It’s been all quiet here lately, but there’s plenty going on behind the scenes…

I’m putting the last few touches to issue 10 of The Lost Laugh magazine as we speak. There have been some great articles submitted by guest writers  on Oliver Hardy and Marjorie Beebe, and you can also read about British comic Will Hay and Charley Chase’s films for Columbia, as well as lots more exclusive content! If you’re already a subscriber, you should receive your copy in the next couple of weeks or so (depending on how much my day job gets in the way!). If not, and you’d like to receive the magazine FREE by email, then find out more about subscribing here. In the meantime, here’s a teaser of the next issue’s cover…

Also in the works,  last year’s Silent Laughter Saturday event at London’s Cinema Museum in October was such a success that it’s going to be repeated this year. This time, however, it will be  a full weekend devoted to silent (and perhaps a bit of sound) comedy! We’re in the process of sifting through goodies to be shown and a new website will be launching shortly. Watch this space!

Finally, a longer term project I’ve been toying with is a book devoted to Laurel & Hardy’s co-stars: not just Fin & Charlie Hall, but Arthur Housman, Tiny Sandford, Anita Garvin et al.It’ll be a long way off yet, but I’m finally starting to go about it seriously.

I’ll be continuing to update the blog and site here too though, so don’t go away!
