BFF trip to Afghanistan

October 21, 2010

I’m recently back from Dubai having tried to get to Afghanistan to do some shows in Forward Operating Bases with James Blunt and comedians Jim Davidson OBE, Clive Cooper and Greg Cook. It was a great line-up and would have delivered a great show – Clive is in the current series of Shameless and Greg was in the Ken Loach film Looking for Eric.

However, unfortunately, due to bad luck and a succession of military aircraft breakdowns, we were unable to get there on this occasion. We flew to Dubai in order to shuttle into Afghanistan but the fragile air bridge was our undoing. This was a great pity for everyone concerned, especially on this occasion as we were all set up to do a number of shows in Forward Operating Bases which is where they are needed most.

It is always very frustrating when you are prepared and ready to do these shows, and you’ve got such a good line-up together, not to be able to deliver what you set out to achieve. However, we remain as coiled springs, ready, willing and able to go again – which I’m sure we will do in the near future.
