Earlier this week I found myself sitting on an armchair made of newspapers, being shunted onto a stage to meet comedian Russell Howard.
This might sound like a weird dream, or one of my tics, but actually it’s entirely true. I was Russell’s guest on his Good News programme, and it’s going to be on BBC 2 this evening.
We talked for about 20 minutes about everything from funny tics and keeping secrets, to my Broadcast from Biscuit Land, part of Live from Television Centre, which will air on BBC4 on Sunday 15th November.
Russell asked thoughtful questions and it was impressive how he managed to keep up with my tics – just about! The audience were warm and receptive too – they seemed to love my unexpected outbursts.
If you’ve found this website because you’ve just watched the interview, welcome! Please have a good look round and make yourself at home.
In addition to my daily blog you can find thousands of my vocal tics and use them as a creative springboard to make your own work of art for our gallery. We’ve also got a shop where you can pick up a variety of tic-inspired products.
If you’re feeling generous, please make a donation. All the money we raise goes towards putting on creative events for children and young people with and without Tourettes.
Thanks, Russell, for a great interview – greater awareness about Tourettes is good news for everyone.
