So during my time off this year I've undertaken a massive challenge and written myself a character based show. A whole hour of being funny on stage but not as myself.
His name is Raul and he just went on sale at for the Adelaide Fringe.
After finding his wife, Denise from reception, in a twin bed room with the yoga instruction, Raul is leaving his job at Hotel Sol in the hunt for true love and in a quest to learn how to swim!
Catch Raul at Gluttony for Adelaide Fringe 2018 and keep an eye on my website for more tour dates appearing soon!
Buy someone you love a Christmas present of entertainment and let's celebrate the summer together!
Oh wow! How amazing it was last month to be celebrating my birthday at the Gothenburg Fringe Award ceremony and to be the recepiant of the BFF Award. It's so nice to be recognised for stuff that I do in my job and it was great to take shows to packed houses in this little Swedish heaven.
I'm super proud right now!
Hello there internet!
Here is a tiny little snippet of the Limerick show and a story about my time in Australia. Theres a few more of these videos, as shot my the incredibly Lucy Dawson, coming out over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for them.
WOW! How did it get to April already?
Where have I been. Let me tell you.
I've been in Perth for 5 weeks, Adelaide for 4, Newcastle for a week and a weekend in Limerick with the award winning [Late Night] GameShow and my solo show Self Absorbed Tw*t.
Whilst I was there I got a load of reviews, including:
★★★★ "There's no such thing as boundaries with Andrew Silverwood" - Weekend Notes
★★★★ "Quick-wit, dripping sarcasm and self-deprecating jokes make for a solid hour of laughter" - Adelaidian
"A likeable, quick witted and cheeky young lad from London with some funny one-liners and a skill for improvisation" - The Advertisier
Oh and a video trailer from the Irish show is coming in the next couple of weeks, which is good, because I'll need that to start promoting my EDINBURGH FRINGE SHOW this August!
That's right. In August I'll be in Edinburgh at The Mockingbird Bar for The Free Fringe, which means you can see me for an ENTIRE MONTH in Scotland for whatever price you want.
But before that, I have shows lined up in Barnstaple, in Sevenoaks and NEXT THURSDAY I have a very special, one off, ten minute slot at Solent Comedy, in PORTSMOUTH, which is pretty much my only homecoming show I have booked this year.
That's right, we haven't even opened in Adelaide yet (Self Absorbed Tw*t opens on Thursday and you can click here for tickets) but we've EXTENDED the Australian Tour and now we'll be smashing our way through to Newcastle in New South Wales from 22nd-26th March!
You can grab your tickets here.
Oh and check this.. Last month at Fringe World in Perth, the show got a ★★★★ 4 star review from LAUGH Kookaburra.
And if you're not on the Southern Hemisphere, you can nab tickets to our one off show at Dolan's in Limerick, Ireland on April 1st here.
Happy New Year!
As I'm sure you know, I have a huge year ahead with a big tour of Australia starting on January 20th and carrying on into March when I travel to Ireland for a show.
But before all that, I am very excited to announce that my beautiful and talented friend, Laurie Black, has invited me onstage at her Bad Luck Cabaret in Camden, a week on Friday, 13th January. I'll be telling some gigglers and stories and this will be the last chance you main land UKers get to see me on stage until at least April, because, you know, tour stuff!
There's also some other stella talent on the bill. Here are the deets:
Bad Luck Cabaret
The Black Heart, Camden
Friday 13th January, 9pm
£5 Adv, £7 on the door
Oh, after an exciting couple of weeks of shows in London and Brighton, it gives me TOO MUCH pleasure to announce that tickets have just gone on sale for my shows at this year's Adelaide Fringe.

[LATE NIGHT] GAMESHOW
