Along with a friend, Trevor Ferdy, I set up a comedy show with the full blessing** of our "rivals" (though I don't believe in the existence of "rivals" in comedy; how childish).

The show has run for almost a year, and has been responsible for the development of some really great, emerging talent. Apparently this is a bad thing, and so our rivals have done nothing but try to hinder our progress for the past year.

This ridiculous behavior shows no sign of stopping, and so it is with great regret, for the purpose of my own sanity and development as a comedian, that I have decided to leave Japan for greener comedic grasses.

Watch, learn, and be afraid... be very afraid.

** Correction 8th Feb 2011: Apparently we didn't have their blessing. I guess the emails we had from them saying "We're happy when people start making new shows" must have misled me.
