Just to let you all know Radio 4 have moved the transmission of "Sandwich Bar" back a couple of weeks so it will now begin on Tuesday the 15 of November but excitingly a second series is already in the works for all you fans of non-existent sandwiches and imaginary rolls.
And yes thanks for reminding me, I didn't know my edition of "Stars and Cars" is going out this week. It'll be interesting to see how much of the Landrover stuff they use, when I turned up at the rural location I saw the producers had ordered up an ambulance and paramedics to be standing by and it turned out they were very nearly needed!
I saw one of those old "Comedy Roots" things about the Pythons on London Live last night. The quality of the video tape used for the interviews makes it look like it was shot about a hundred years ago and most of the contributors labelled "comedian" you have never heard of but as somebody mentioned for some reason I am there. I have no idea when I shot those interviews or for what purpose but what struck me is that I am being the most unbelievable ponce! Speaking in a slow affected manner, making bizarre hand gestures and slumped in my seat in a way that is frankly insulting to whoever was interviewing me. I said to Linda "If I saw that I would have thought 'what a terrible git that bloke is'." And she replied. "A lot of people did think that..."
Whoever asked what political party I support. I do honestly think that its important that as a political comedian you do not give support to any one party as you have to be free to criticise everyone. On the other hand I think with the election of Jeremy Corbyn there is an epochal moment to make a fundamental change in the way politics is done in this country and I get very impatient with any of my friend who don't get on board with that idea. A lot seem to be looking for ways to dismiss him and what he represents, either swallowing that he was somehow responsible for brexit crap or the anti-semitism bollocks.
