HOW YOU DOIN’: Comedian presents new show inspired by Friends at Watford Fringe

 Published on: 12th September 2023   |   By: Annabel Stock   |   Category: Uncategorized

A comedian from Hemel Hempstead is previewing his new solo stand-up show at a variety of fringe festivals this autumn.

The show tells the true-life story of Dylan Dodds’ absurdist attempt to write a blog every two weeks comparing his life to the 90s sitcom Friends. He has done this for the last

eight years and is threatening to continue until he’s done it for every episode. Being the same age as the characters in Friends, he started blogging about the show every fortnight. How have things changed since the 90s? How does his life compare to Friends? And has the show stood the test of time?

In 2019, he did a five-star reviewed stand-up show about it, which ended with him deciding to have children. Now he presents the follow-up.

Audiences will join Dylan as he grapples with how his life has (and hasn’t) changed and watch as he reacts to friends moving on, getting married and having kids.

Originally from Watford, Dylan now lives in Hemel Hempstead and his parents live in Abbots Langley.

Dylan has been performing stand-up around the country for several years.

Before his debut he appeared in two compilation shows at the Edinburgh Fringe (Happy Hour Comedy Club, and Small Town Fools) and was a founder member of The Village Idiots Mask Theatre Troupe, who had several sell-out runs at the festival.

In London he previously ran his own nights – Famous First Words and Jazz Comedy, and along with live comedy, several of his jokes have featured in the script of the BBC’s Newsjack.

Dylan will be performing on Saturday, September 30 at 8pm at Watford Museum. Tickets are £7.50 and £3. Tickets can be found at
