I’ve booked myseld into way too many TV recordings recently but they’ve all been quite good. I’ve got lots of “Two Pints …” tickets and a cople of “Would I Lie To You?” ones. I have also been to my 1st live recording and an amost live recording.I saw Marcus Brigstocke in “The Late Edition” which is live on the BBC. Also, today, I went to see the rehearsal for “Saturday Live Again”. You may remember “Saturday Live” (if you’re old enough) which started in 1986 and was presented by Ben Elton. This was a one-night-only resurrection presented by Marcus Brigstocke with some great acts:
- Hard Fi
- Bon Jovi
- Mitchell and Webb
- Jimmy Carr
- Little Miss Jocelyn
- Ben Elton
Jimmy Carr couldn’t be there for the rehearsal because he was doing a live stage show but it was good fun. It also gave me a chance to see how an (as-)live show is done.
The main thing I remembered that prompted me to write another blog entry was something I saw on a bus. The advert says something like “Shrooms – Prepare To Get Wasted” then has the comment “It’s Like Blair Witch On Acid” ... surely it’s like Blair Witch on shrooms?? I hate stupid things like that.
If you’ve seen “Part Troll” you’ll know what Bill Bailey would think of this. If you havn’t seen it I’ll upload it soon (maybe).
