New Bio

One of the people "doing something funny for money" this Red Nose Month is David Quantick he is selling his writing talents for small donations, So I asked him to write me a new profile biog:

"There is only one Tony Kennick. How I wish this was otherwise" - Kenneth Tynan

Tony Kennick could have been the greatest film star this country has ever known, had he not turned down Orson Welles’ advances in 1975. Although only a baby, the young Tony had caught the great man’s eye as he strolled through Bournemouth looking for sherry. But even then Tony knew that his talents lay on the stage, and so he devoted the rest of his life to acting and directing. And even if sometimes he is forced to cross over to the wrong side of the footlights, then his many fans need not worry – for the sound of Doctor Theatre’s beeper is never far from Tony’s thespian pockets and once more the halls of the North will ring with his sonorities. (Tony is also available for children’s parties, voice over and has his own clown shoes).


On another note, anyone here planning on going to Synthetic Culture's Easter special?

The Company presents…. 

Arsenic and Old Lace

by Joseph Kesselring

"Arsenic and Old Lace" is a farcical black comedy centred on theatre critic Mortimer Brewster and his crazy, homicidal family.

While he debates whether to marry the woman he loves, he discovers that his two sweet old spinster aunts have taken to murdering lonely old men….

With the addition of a brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, another who looks like Boris Karloff, a motley crew of policemen and a plastic surgeon called Dr Einstein, this is a cracking farce that guarantees lots of laughs!

The play will be performed at the University Drama Studio Wednesday 2nd-Saturday 5th February at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £7 (or £5 for concessions) and can be booked via the website or by phoning the box office on (0114) 201 0090.

National Blood Service - Do Something Amazing - Give Blood

NHS Blood and Transplant is urging donors to make a special effort to keep their appointments as the early arrival of snow and freezing conditions has led to the cancellation of dozens of blood donor sessions across England and North Wales.

If there’s one thing comic book nerds like doing it’s over thinking the smallest details. Here we turn our attention to the hypothetical legal ramifications of comic book tropes, characters, and powers. Just a few examples: Are mutants a protected class? Who foots the bill when a hero damages property while fighting a villain? What happens legally when a character comes back from the dead?

It is halfway through Movember and the itching is quite bad. I think I'll do slug balancing instead next year. I haven't quite managed to reach the magnificence shown in this artists impression yet, but I'm working on it. Please donate at

I think it is time to start beseeching people for donations or this year will turn out to be a pale shadow of last year.
