Ladies n' Genminiminminmin (er, min...) please welcome my lovely and good friend Nik Howden to "The Good Listening To: Your Life & Times with Me Chris Grimes!" Clearing!
Nik and I have been on stage together in a Comedy Improvisational capacity in INSTANT WIT (a Company which I co-run with Stephanie Weston) for the last many many years - plus we also have The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in common, in that that's where we both trained as Actors - but at different times.
Nik is a lovely Actor and a wonderful Comedy Improvisation performer. He is also a Stan Laurel look-a-likey too! He even got to play my all time comic hero Stan Laurel in a BBC4 Film about Laurel & Hardy which he also talks about in this Episode too.
As an all round 'versatility pants' Nik is also a DJ and a Funerial Celebrant - as well as being a real dap-hand at DIY!
A lovely, most enjoyable and playful Episode indeed!
“The Good Listening To: Your Life & Times With Me Chris Grimes!” is the Show & Podcast series that features “The Clearing”:
Where all good Questions come to be asked - and all good Stories come to be told…
With some lovely juicy Storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:
The Clearing itself - a Tree - a lovely juicy Storytelling exercise called “5-4-3-2-1” - some Alchemy - some Gold - a cheeky bit of Shakespeare - and a CAKE!
So it’s all to play for!
(…and indeed Huzzah!)
