It’s time to build a Website

I think it’s time to build a website. I have the blog up and running (in case you’re wondering if that’s true, you’re actually reading my wonderfully exciting blog as we speak) and I’m successfully updating it every 2 – 3 days.

Now as I am looking to set up my own weekly comedy night in Notting Hill, I need somewhere for people to find info on each night and who is performing. I’ve noticed a lot of other comics have set up Facebook pages or groups for comedy nights, though as I’m rather rusty on Facebook and I can never find the right info it’s like the black bin‐liner of receipts you hand over to your accountant saying “good luck”.

So for now I want a clear organised simple website.

I would also like to start promoting my 6 day show in the Camden Fringe 2014 as I want it to be a massive success. 11th‐13th and 18th‐20th Aug 2014 at the Grafton off Kentish Town tube (insert these dates into your diary now folks because it is going to be amazing).

I also would like to let people know about other nights I’m performing like at Up the Creek and Downstairs at the King’s Head.

Then there’s the animation I want to start working on, oh have I told you about the animation bit yet? I will.

Part of me thinks I should just be focussing on the material and the performance. Though without anyone actually knowing about the show, performing a pants‐wettingly brilliant show to only the Grafton bar staff might equally be a slight waste of time.

So I feel a more fully fledged website is going to help create a go‐to point for all Dan Tambling Comedy stuff such as the blog, future gigs around London & UK, cartoons and animation, camden fringe shows etc.

The only problem with a website is that is seems to take ages to build these things and I have no skills to do that, so I need to rely on someone else. In steps Mr or Mrs Web Designer, though if they are any good they are all busy building websites… balls

I’ll let you know how I get on.

Dan Tambling is a stand-up comedian, sketch comedy writer, actor and producer of ‘12 sketches in a London house’. This is his blog.
