SWITCH Vor uns liegt ein weites tal SWITCH I knew Chaplin would be at the BMI somewhere...had to be in there somewhere SWITCH Comedy and Pain should surely be uneasy bedfellows. SWITCH Die sonne scheint mit glitzerstrahl SWITCH ‘Me and my mum had about a week just going through the garage – we just sat there crying. On the other hand it was lovely that we uncovered things.’ Nicky Weller SWITCH Die fahrbahn ist ein graues band SWITCH Scooters, scooters everywhere…Style Councillors and lots of great hair SWITCH The clown has great importance as part of the search for what is laughable and ridiculous in man.

However, alongside this, I am also interested in how the photographs function outside of the performance film and become ‘other’?" SWITCH Aus dem lautsprecher klingt es dann SWITCH Returned to an idea I once had for a short screenplay about a frustrated and accidental stand up comedian. One scene I wrote has slapstick undertones and may point the way forward for the first stages of the residency…SWITCH Wir fahr'n auf der Autobahn SWITCH Spoke to a great guy at the BBC about Jerry Lewis, Susannah Corbett and Benny Hill. He invited me down to the BBC Archives for a look at some rare Harry H Corbett footage and a bigger discussion about potential projects SWITCH League of Gentlemen Series Two, Anarchy in Royston Vasey – 'we’ll bury him so it looks like a wolf did it' SWITCH Geoff Tipps is perfect for the research on stand up...Turn Again Geoff Tipps
