"Dude, I finally got the venue I wanted"

There's another festival lined up - the Port Eliot Festival, some time in late July. I'll be doing something with Rob Lewis again (we're becoming something of a double act). This is no ordinary festival. Instead of just reading, you're supposed to do something, er... "performance art"-ish. (Don't laugh.) Me and Rob have had one or two ideas so far: a comedy magic act (a la Tommy Cooper *), and a celebrity cage fight (but without the celebrities).

Suggestions welcome. Anything. Anything.


* Some Tommy Cooper:
A woman tells her doctor, 'I've got a bad back.' The doctor says, 'It's old age.' The woman says, 'I want a second opinion.' The doctor says: 'Okay - you're ugly as well.

You know you want to sing an excerpt of "Mother is like no other."

I went to the doctor, said "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." He said, "Well, don't do that..." Ahaaaaah-har.

But if you're going to do Cooper, don't forget the Stradivarius and the Rembrandt. And your bottle and glass.

Ray, I couldn't ever hope to do a real "Tommy Cooper". The only bit I could do is the failed magic tricks. I can do that no problem.

Sarah, you're right. I do want to sing that. But there are some things you just shouldn't mess with.

Ray said...

Tell you what, you git yo' butt to B'Con, and I'll give you lessons. It's all in the chin. Ahaaaaah-har. Jus'likethat.

Ray, that sounds like a plan. I've heard it's all in the chin but you'll just have to desmonstrate for me, and I'm prepared to travel 2000 (?) miles to see it. Shame B'Con is after this festival, though.
