2 ON THE RADIO

Andy Blithe and Nick will be special guests on BBC Radio Norfolk next week, discussing their new TV series ‘2 Go Mad In Norfolk’, with Kirstene Thorne at 08:20 on 10/04/2021

The delightful duo will be talking about the exclusive concept of ‘2 Go Mad’ and how it has evolved into it’s mischievously entertaining design. Andy and Nick will give a sneak preview into the shows content, and how their 10 year friendship has been a stable foundation to the dynamics of the show. The BBC TV have also shown an interest in broadcasting a feature with the couple.

Meanwhile filming for ‘2 Go Mad’ restarts this month in various locations around Norfolk. The boys will be travelling around the county sampling local tourist attractions and Norfolk novelties , with their impish shenanigans adding hilarity to the events. Keep a look out for Penthouse 1 and the boys on their travels.

“Little bit of a diversion for me this project, being one that’s going to be a regularly broadcasted show. Very much looking forward to it and to having a lot of laughs and a lot of giggles, can’t wait. Andy and I have been close friends for the past 10 years, and to do a project like this, I think, the only way that it can really work is if we have a real serious bond between ourselves, and a really good vibe. I love Andy, he’s a top man and I think this is going to be something really exciting”. (Nick Elliott)

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Recently Nick had the rare opportunity to work with several talented and much loved Hollywood A listers. Nick was contacted by a casting agency to consider playing a small but significant role in a Hollywood blockbuster film due for general cinematic release in autumn 2021 across the UK.

It was an early morning set call, on a cold brisk morning, and the filming of Nick’s scene took all day at a secret location.

To reduce the possibility of any leaks to the National Tabloids, no photos were permitted on set as the Hollywood actors were in full costume. Strict Covid -19 restrictions were in place to prevent any chance of the production being closed down. Whilst waiting for the scene set up, Nick mingled with some of the cast and crew.

“ What a fantastic experience. This was a first for me on this kind of level. I’m looking forward to more opportunities. It was wonderful to meet so many interesting people. The main star of the movie is played by an exceptional actor who was extremely kind, with an absolute wicked sense of humour. The professionalism they displayed was top drawer and their talent as a performer was immeasurable. (Nick Elliott)

ONE SHEET, ONE MAN, ONE CAMERA, AND A ROLL FULL OF AMBITION

The UK to USA Tour One Sheet…

Nick’s ‘One Sheet’ for his upcoming USA Tour has been expertly designed by South Carolina design and network service industry, Waterscape Incorporated, of Murtle Beach, and elliottstudios could not be any more happier with the finished result.

The One Sheet is being distributed across several states in the USA, which is proving to generate even further interest and bookings for the USA Tour, under the robust management of Brenda Cline CEO of Workhorse 615.

Nick has already selected a compilation of his unique unseen images exclusively for his USA tour and its exhibitions. These remarkable images will be available to purchase as fine art prints and also be transferred onto tour merchandise.

A full list of dates and venues will be officially released by elliottstudios later this year.

If Nick’s UK fan base are feeling left out, there is no need to worry. Negotiations are already in progress for a UK and European tour.

“I’ve spent 10 years trying to crack the American market, since I first went there in 2010. I love the USA and the American people. I’m looking forward to taking Rock’ n’ Roll Nick Elliott style stateside. It’s going to be kicking!” (Nick Elliott)

Q & A. PART 6

Q1. What’s your favourite meal? (JB Coventry UK)

A1. Chips and egg with bread and butter. A close second would be a full Monty. Benice is a brilliant cook and she has taught me a few of her tricks. You could eat in Monaco and it would be as good as her home-made chips and egg.

Q2. What’s the last book you read? (A regalia UK)

A2. I was fortunate enough to receive David Bailey‘s new book ‘Look’ for Christmas and it’s absolutely enthralling . I’ve also just read ‘The boy, the mole, the Fox and the horse’ by Charlie Mackey. It’s fantastic, I recommend it to everyone, and it’s reassuring in these times. The artwork and the text are just spot-on.

Q3. What do you prefer to drink? (B Carter UK)

A3. I love a pint of ice cold milk, but that’s closely followed by JB and Pepsi on ice. I met Agostini in the clubhouse at Silverstone in 1974 during the British motorcycle Grand Prix. During our chat he ordered us both a whiskey and Coke, in a tall glass over ice. It was the best drink ever. Afterwards I thought that if it’s good enough for Agostini it’s good enough for me and I have drunk my JB like that ever since.

Q4. What tips can you give an aspiring music photographer? (Remedios P. Greece)

A4. I don’t normally give tips on photography. I’m a firm believer that you should find your own style and develop your craft to make it individual. Individualism is the way to make your art stand out from the rest. It blazes a unique trail that others try to emulate, but as you develop and become more creative those twats that copy, find it hard to keep up. Always keep pushing your creative boundaries and be daring.

Q5. Truth or dare? (D Clark Bodmin UK)

A5. Truth

Q6. Have you ever been arrested? (Joyce Gwyn South Wales UK)

A6. Well no, but I nearly was. My friend and I climbed the Christmas tree in the middle of Peterborough town Square in 1973. When we got down, the dibbles were waiting for us. It took a bit of sweet talking for them to let us off with a warning. I was totally ragged that night. Happy days!
