JONATHAN KYDD Hi there. I’m an actor. But I
also voice stuff and make films and videos
and write songs . Which I then perform (in!). I’

long shows featuring comedy bands (which I’
ve been in) and a number of video blogs,
mostly about football. I’ve also made two
comedy short films and a lot of videos. I
podcast about football as well. This site
attempts to reflect all these diverse things I
get up to that are still all entertainment
based! So there are many vids and sound
clips and voice over segments and short
films and songs I’ve written or been in or
sung or am in or doing at this moment!
