Story

A short time ago, something pretty awful happened, and I bet something pretty significant on it not happening: my glorious hair.

I bet that if Hillary Clinton lost the election, I would shave my head for charity.

And we all know what happened there.

Anyone who's known me more than 6 minutes will have at some point had a conversation about my hair. I love it, but am also sick of it. I was once described in a review for a show I was in as 'the man who carries around David Bard's hair.' By this point it feels so inextricably linked to my personality that I quite literally have no idea how I'll feel without it.

What will I run my hands through? How will total strangers compliment me? Will I lose all my strength like Samson? (what strength, Dave?) How long will it take to grow back? Will it grow back? Is my head tiny? (yes, it is). Will I still look like George Michael, just from a different era? So many questions.

One thing is for sure - much like Trump's America, my head is likely to become a cold and strange place.

I've decided to donate all money raised to an American charity for women who have suffered sexual assault and abuse because...well...Trump. Exactly which charity I'm not 100% sure yet, but suggestions welcome.

I will also be donating the hair itself to a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer, if they want it (ie, if it's long enough).

But mainly, I'm doing it so that, on a personal level, I can know that a very tiny amount of good came out of the election result.

So on January 20th, as one idiot with a stupid hairdo is sworn in, an altogether more harmless idiot with a stupid hairdo will be getting shaved.

You know how much my hair means to me.

Please give generously.
