Thanks for all the nice messages (in various media) about the One Night Stand show. Thank you very much for these, all much appreciated as it is peculiar being in Australia at 7am while something you’ve done is transmitted to people all the way back home. Though not as strange for me, perhaps, because I tend not to watch myself on TV anyway, so in a sense I might as well always be in Australia. But still. I remembered the gig as being quite awkward, what with all the home-town-high-stress-levels stuff I probably mentioned at the time, so it’s reassuring that not all this awkwardness communicated itself on the TV. Good old TV.
And now something very different. I am out here with, among others, Alex Horne – who you may have seen on the broadcast. If not, you might know him anyway from We Need Answers and the like. Tomorrow I am taking part in one of Horne’s famous challenges, where comedians have to vie to complete difficult tasks. I’ll explain later the precise nature of my task, but suffice to say, I need SOME INTERESTING THINGS TO SHOW HORNE by tomorrow (end of today your time, really). It could just be a nice message. Or a limerick. Or a picture you’ve done or something else has done. Or, really, anything. I need to entertain Horne, partly with things you have supplied. Put it that way. You may interpret this brief any way you like. You might just know a fact he’d like (he likes birds). You can literally do anything. Anything that might beguile Alex Horne for a few seconds.
Thank you. As I said, all will be explained soon.
