Catch Norman and Hattie on opposite sides of the globe!

25 August, 2017 (Updated 1 September, 2017)

It's a busy time of year for comedy, with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in full swing - and while festival veteran Norman Lovett hasn't been part of the annual show crowd for a few years now, he's nevertheless got a few live dates on the calendar coming up elsewhere.

On a busy weekend in September, you can see Norman doing his latest standup set at the Chippenham Comedy Festival on Friday 8th (on stage 7pm), before making appearances at the Gloucester Comic Con on Saturday 9th and Bristol Comic Con on Sunday 10th.

Later in the month, the Elstree Charity Film & TV Event on Saturday 30th September also plays host to Norman's deadpan comedy stylings; while he can then be seen, met and (if you're lucky) photographed at the latest Stoke Con Trent on Sunday 15th October.

Tickets for all of these events can be found at the relevant websites, and you can also keep up with Norman's whereabouts on his website and Twitter.

Meanwhile, we don't often have news to report for the legions of Red Dwarf fans in Japan - but there's a very special event coming up this very weekend called Donburacon, a convention which has been going since the 1960s and covers comics, manga, sci-fi and more. And one of our most dedicated Japanese fans - who also makes the trip over here for every Dimension Jump - has managed to wangle a spot for one Hattie Hayridge at the event.

Following in the footsteps of Danny John-Jules, who visited a few years back, Hattie will be judging the costume competition at the Red Dwarf portion of the event, as well as doing a Q&A for a couple of hours and signing. We're hoping to bring you some photos of this distinctive and unique event in the coming weeks!

And if you happen to be reading this site over there and have anything to report from the event yourself, we'd love to hear from you!

UPDATED (01.09.17): And true to our word, here are some pictures of Hattie enjoying her convention adventure with some of Japan's most die-hard Red Dwarf fans!
