I've not got loads on towards the end of 2018, to allow for some creative resplurging before things get busy again. Therefore, I'm keeping my recent gigs on here so I don't look like a layabout.

"Fat Roland is a comedic onslaught of musical puns, cultural references, and audience interaction... It is clear that Fat Roland is more than familiar with performance, knowing exactly how to get the room roaring with laughter, from start to finish... A fantastic combination of comedy, cartoons, and creativity." Upstaged Manchester's ***** review of Seven Inch.

I am available for booking. I can come and do a set for you (think Stewart Lee devoured by Johnny Vegas holding a cartoon of Stewart Lee being devoured by Johnny Vegas). I can compere your event (think Stewart Lee devoured by Johnny Vegas announcing that the next act is Stewar-- you get the idea). Or maybe you want me for a talk or discussion or podcast. I've done two shows for the Edinburgh Fringe and a third show (Seven Inch) in Salford. Recent appearances include Manchester Literature Festival, The Lowry, Waterside Arts, Brewery Arts, Royal Exchange and FC United. The videos page might give you more of an idea, or it may not. To get in contact, email me.
