Matt Millz On Tour by Harry Hill - published today!


Matt Millz on Tour! the 3rd in the hilarious series by Harry Hill & illustrated by me is out today  (Thursday October 17th) published by Faber & Faber This time Matt is taking his act to the Edinburgh Festival! You can order it here!


Matt’s dream of becoming a stand-up comic is fading. Six months on from his success at the Apollo, the gigs have dried up, and it’s back to the daily drudge of schoolwork for Matt and his pals. But then his twelve-year-old manager Kitty has a brainwave: if they can persuade their teachers to take a school play up to the Edinburgh Festival, they could hold a comedy night too.
But Matt’s got a rival new school-mate Jamie who is pushing to be in the comedy line-up. And Jamie is good. But is he too good to be true?

A Bestiary of (dimly remembered) Literary Terms

I was following a thread by @katemond on Twitter about 7 year olds being forced to learn about 'fronted adverbials' at school & after looking the term up realised the reality was a hell of a lot duller than my original idea of what a Fronted Adverbial looked like.

I proceeded to draw some more dimly remembered terms from studying English literature back in the mists of time.

A fine quote from an eminently quotable movie 'Sir Henry At Rawlinsons End' written by the late great ginger geezer himself Viv Stanshall.

Fat blue cat

Does what it says on the tin!

I'm THOR!


Thor the thundergod went for a ride
Upon his favourite filly
"I'm Thor!" He cried
The horse replied,
"You forgot your thaddle, thilly."

(rhyme courtethy of )

Matt Millz Stands Up - PUBLICATION DAY!

Matt Millz Stands Up the second book by Harry Hill about the experiences of a young stand up comedian is published today Thursday 18th October.
As before Harry's text gave me lots of scope to create new characters & to indulge in the odd bit of surreal nonsense too (which as anybody who's followed my career will know is a particular favourite of mine!)
'Matt’s TV performance seems to have given him the fame that he had always dreamed of: There are reporters camped outside his house – he’s suddenly in demand! But as the novelty wears off and Matt struggles to get any new gigs, it’s not long before he begins to doubt his friend and manager Kitty Hope. Would the stylish Excalibur  Agency turn his fortunes around? And could Matt ever bear to push Kitty aside?'
You can order it from here or even better get down to your local independent bookshop & get it from there!
