Listen to Julian read 'Waiting'


I wrote this whilst waiting for people to turn up for a meeting. It then struck me that I was one of those people who always seems to be waiting for something.

Waiting

WAITING
WAITING
WAITING
ALWAYS WAITING.

WAITING FOR A BUS
WAITING FOR FRIENDS
WAITING FOR MY BIG BREAK.

WAITING
WAITING
WAITING

WAITING FOR THE LIGHTS TO CHANGE
WAITING FOR THE COMPUTER TO LOAD
WAITING FOR THE GIRLFRIEND’S HEADACHE TO CLEAR (AGAIN)

WAITING
WAITING
WAITING

Now you’re waiting.
Waiting for this poem to end.

WAITING
WAITING
WAITING….

How to Dump Your Girlfriend

Co-written with Henry Pumpkin.

How to dump your girlfriend is a dilemma most blokes face from time to time. So the authors have taken it upon themselves to put this guide together. Much of their research has been road tested by themselves through their own experiences with girlfriends. They have also done
extensive research in bars, clubs, football terraces, chat rooms, speed dating evenings and around the edges of dance floors. The rest they have made up. For those having girlfriend trouble, or those who have a friend who is going through such trouble, this is the book they need. It may or may not solve your problems. But it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Julian Daniel is a stand up comic with a burgeoning reputation on the Northern Circuit. He was assisted by Henry Pumpkin, an award winning BBC comedy writer
