Tuck me, it's nearly April.
How did that happen?
When did I grow old?
It's been a hectic month of touring and fighting my way through snow and rain, so thanks to everyone who has made it along to gigs. The cancelled ones in Bath and Dartmouth have been rescheduled.
Here's what's coming up in April.
OH FRIG I'M 50! DVD KICKSTARTER
As I write there are only 30 hours left to back this kickstarter for the DVD record at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on May 4th. We've hit our target, so it's definitely happening, but if you want to get your hands on the strictly limited edition DVD and the exclusive and fun extras (which I hope will become collector's items and actually make you money) then be quick!
And there's a lot of tickets to sell still for this gig. It's the only London show on the tour. Be great to have it as full as possible. Buy your tickets here.
And a huge thanks to everyone who has backed us to success.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
My goodness, that went better than expected. My annual "November 19th" marathon raised an astonishing £150,000 for Refuge. I can't tell you what a difference this will make to this excellent and sadly necessary charity. Thanks so much for joining in the fun. You can still donate here.
Series 13 of RHLSTP is going incredibly well too. We've just released one with Mackenzie Crook and one with Rachel and Kiri from All Killa No Filla. And there are some amazing episodes coming up, including Katherine Ryan, Maria Bamford and a total theatrical happening with Brian Blessed.
Ingest them here.
Just one more record to go
It's on April 2nd and the guests are Mark Steel and at least two (but hopefully all three) of the team from the My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast.
This is the last London podcast until September and anyone who has been will tell you that it's even better live (plus you see the extra bits that are too scandalous to broadcast).
Support us by spreading the word about the podcast or coming to see us live.
OH FR*G I'M 50 TOUR
I am really enjoying the tour. The show is improving and expanding and there hasn't been an even slightly dud one yet. I think this might be my best one yet. And I am not going to be touring a stand up show next year, so come and see me now!
For some reason the gigs in Dublin and Belfast are not selling anywhere near as well as usual. So if you know anyone from those cities who might like my stuff, please let them know!
Please note an extra show has been added in Liverpool.
These are the upcoming ones

Matt Forde's Unspun
I've now put up the full version of my set from this show. Watch it here.
And if you want to help us make even more podcasts, and get festooned with amazing extras including all the RHLSTP backstage interviews, downloads of all my stand up shows, exclusive video question and answer sessions, entry into a monthly prize draw PLUS find out the RHLSTP guests before everyone else then why not become a Dripster
You'd be paying less than a pound a week in return for 365 blogs and about 40 RHLSTPS.
If you want pretty much all of that, but not the stand up shows (not sure if you'll get the Q and A sessions either) then set your own price and become a monthly badger.
This is very much an either/or choice with whichever package suits you best.
I've hardly started writing this, but we're recording it in May and it will be out (I guess) in September on Radio 4.
House of Games
I am going to be on one week of this Richard Osman helmed quiz. Can I finally win a TV quiz? Not sure of broadcast dates, but we're recording it this month.
