Although solely designed, built and maintained by one person, the existence of the Comedy Warehouse depends on many people and organizations. So to make sure I don't get sued, here are the people who made this all possible:
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Intellect, thy name is Phil Colvin.

Artist's Impression. (A very good artist, might I add)
The award winning Comedy and MIDI Warehouses were solely designed, built and mantained by Phil Colvin. Following his survival and graduation from the famed English and Creative Writing course at the the University of East Anglia, Phil has relocated to the lush pastures of Bristol University to begin a new life as Chaplaincy Assistant and novelist. His pet loves include almost everything. Except dance music. And Delius. And, indeed, Delia Smith (sorry, Delia, but you peaked with the Winter Collection and have nosedived ever since)
Phil is currently working on his first novel ("A kind-of mystery, thriller, religious occult thing... With a heart"), a screenplay and a sit-com set in a school. He's held the extremley prestigious post of Assistant Film Editor for the extra-ordinarily prestigious University of East Anglia student paper, Concrete. (For reference purposes, he was the one who wasn't evil) And has contributed to websites across the world on subjects as diverse as the spiritual dimensions in popular culture to the classic chidrens' television series, Knightmare. Phil got into writing with fan fiction for the award-winning computer games series, Gabriel Knight. Among his many stories include the novel-length History Maker and The Birth, The Life and the Death (which Phil prides himself as being the first modern Gothic novel to link Arthurian legend, the Beast of Bodmin Moor and the work of Cornish novelist Daphne du Maurier. Phil tends to get a lot of pleasure from dubious achievements.)
Phil would dearly love to travel and holds an amateur interest in world conservation. He was a member of the first London Zoo Children's Committee, selected as part of a group of 12 who helped (among many other things) to design the children's zoo which opened in 1994. Then in 2002 he travelled to the USA and worked at the quite indescribable Camp Equinunk in the beautiful Equinunk, Pennsylvania. Phil's dream is to go on a world book slash evangalism tour, talking about Gothic mystery whilst ringing silly bells and explaning the Gospel. (If you would like to book Phil to ring silly bells at functions of your choosing, please contact him on the address below)
Phil has notched up three TV appearences in his short time on this planet. Two on the children's news programme Newsround about his work on the London Zoo Children's Committee and once on the school's edition of 15-1 representing Poole Grammar School. Phil would like to apologise for the quality of his hair on all these occassions.

THE AUTHOR WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE FOLLOWING
Rob Grant and Doug Naylor for creating Red Dwarf and not suing me yet.
Chris Carter and Fox TV for creating the X-Files and not suing me. Or firebombing my house.
Carnival Films for creating BUGS, not suing me and making London Docklands famous.
Geocities and Freeserve for giving me loads of web space and being thoroughly nicer people than those idiots at Tripod who mess their members around.
Athens2090 (Where I learnt HTML)
God Well, he had to be here somewhere. I couldn't have done anything without him and am eternally grateful
Ray, Carlos, Christy, Heath, Stella (MadWoman), Joy and Nico for encouraging my work and allowing my material loose on their respective great sites.
Les, Marina, Matt and Sue for letting me spend two wonderful weeks learning what our police force really does (expect to see a comedy based on police administration in the very near future)
Kathy, Mary and all in the United Methodists Churches of Equinunk for looking after me one summer and having the longest name for an organisation, ever.
Miranda, Cyberax and BTP for giving me a great time in London and some wondeful photos for my wallet.
Jane Jensen, Adam Bormann and everyone else working on GK3 for creating Gabriel Knight 3 and paying attention to my various Phantom Clown ramblings.
Anyone who made MIDI files which are on this site. As all this files came from the Web, I have assumed they are all PD. Thanks very much.
Friends, family and the signifcant others etc. etc. not necessarily because they helped me, but because I had to base the comedy on somebody.
