The attached photo is of the bloated Lewis Schaffer at the Leicester Square Theatre before he started working out and got buff. When that will happen, we don’t know. 

3AM Friday 3rd April 2015 Nunhead Heights.

I am in John Fleming’s blog this week being called a “silver fox” by Kate Copstick. Read it here. Funny, I just noticed John said this (from his mouth to the BBC’s ears):

“Lewis looked really good on television. He would be really good on television documentaries. He’s not a stand-up comedian because he can’t replicate the act phrase-for-phrase, pause-for-pause in rehearsals, dress rehearsals and the take. But he’d be very good on like My View of Britain. It would be like Letter From America with Alistair Cooke.”

Here is the actual video of me on BBC Radio 4 talking to John Humphys and Justin Webb. Watch this before they take it down.

Nunhead American Radio:

Monday, funny Dominic Frisby, comedian and financial writer, came on the radio. He spoke with the brilliant Liz Zitzow, my accountant and international tax expert. She knows about the latest USA-UK tax issues. Dominic has two hardcover books out and is a libertarian which is completely radical in the UK. Listen here on MixCloud. Our best show, ever.

The Relatives, our band, has a new video up “Lewis, You Crossed the Line”  (2 mins long). Watch the many videos uploaded on the Lewis Schaffer YouTube Channel. Click.

Southwark Woods News:

We are trying to get the council to stop cutting down woods in Nunhead and East Dulwich. Votes from their core supporter and making money seem like the motives.

Please read and sign the petition to Save Southwark Woods. And go to @southwarkwoods on twitter and to the website.
