Anyone who has seen Dan Evans doing stand-up comedy will now probably be smiling to themselves now. Dan has this affect on people.Â His act is insanely warmÂ – in the same vein asÂ Otis Cannelloni – not that either of these acts are not laugh-out-loud funnyÂ – because they are – but it is warmth that the audience take home with them. They both makeÂ people feel happy.
I worked with DanÂ recently and we had a great night out – going for a curry afterwards. Dan is as warm off stage as on. He has written a book and kindly gave me a copy – I am sure in the hope that I might help him to promote it – although nothing was said.
The book is called D.I Snaith – Tales from the Casebook
DanÂ published it himselfÂ – so immediately, a man I can empathise with. The book is bonkers. A series of short concluded detective stories – very heightened – very silly and very funny.
I have said many times on this blog before – the lack of support from creative types for other creative types and their endeavour.Â The greasy pole is very greasy indeed – which is not something I ever really understand.Â If I like something then I am happy to bring it to people’s attention.
So here goes –
This is a book by a smashing bloke – it will take only a few hours to read – and of all the guff in book shops, you could do an awful lot worse and I hope some of you might come to it.
