Here is Culum’s award-winning work for PETA‘s “Get a Feel For Angora” campaign. It gets pretty unpleasant for those poor bunnies. Sensitive viewers be advised!

And here is Culum’s recent, startling work helping to raise awareness for the National Autistic Society. He’s a talented chap!

Episode 05: Keith the Hostage Negotiator (feat. Natasha Parrott) – ED & FRIENDS

The lovely Keith is in the podcast studio for Episode 5, where we go in deep on life as a Police Officer and Hostage Negotiator as well as having a giggle with Giggle Loop improviser Natasha Parrott.

IMG_0080 (1)Keith tells us what it takes and what it costs to be a Hostage Negotiator with the Met Police, as well as making us chuckle with tales of roller-discos and going undercover to avoid the wrath of Prince.

We loved having Keith on the podcast. We were hanging on his every word! You can see his improv team, Genre Claude Van Damme and laugh at their particular brand of cinematic comedy by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter.

IMG_0013And co-hosting with Ed this week is comedy co-hort and Giggle Loop chum, Natasha Parrott! As well as being an improviser, she is also on those Text Santa posters with Ed, so she is in your face throughout the christmas period leading up to Christmas Jumper Day on December 18th.

Episode 04: Fran the Clown – ED & FRIENDS

Ed is delighted to have on the podcast this week an actor, musician, improviser, presenter, stand-up comedian and children’s entertainer: Francesca Reid!

IMG_6520Francesca has been performing since she was an eccentrically imaginative toddler. Flanked by a full cohort of imaginary pals she would write great 6/8 word odes where her knack for vocabulary was evident in the brevity of said great works . . .

She also works with the Flying Seagull Project, a charity dedicated to bringing circus and arts-based fun to people in difficult times. For more info or to make a donation, please go to http://www.theflyingseagullproject.com
