Ah, I miss the Dreadfuls... We were reminiscing about Kissy Fun Commandos not so long ago.

They did a final gig a good few years back now, and then all went off on separate things, I think. I hope there's a reunion sometime. Preferably with the original four so they can do 'The Invisible Man' because that makes me cry laughing!

Humphrey has been in America. He was developing a sitcom for abc. Not sure about David. thom had been doing his own stuff. I saw his adaption of Harold pinter's A Slight Ache, which I enjoyed. I also saw his free stand up show in edinburgh.

It would be great if they did something together again.

What was Thom's stand-up like? Any good? I saw him at Storytellers Club one time, but that was ages ago.

His normal stand up is great very thoughtful. I went to see a free show he did in the afternoon and i think he got put off by these two random old ladies who decided to take a seat and discuss their shopping :lol: so it wasn't a great show.
