So firstly, as you might have seen, there was a Comment yesterday from a lady who was well qualified to unscramble the Italian review of the book (as featured in a weekend blog) since she was no less than the translator of ‘Eleven’ into Italian. It seems it was actually positive and Google didn’t do the greatest job of representing it. Phew.
Now – this isn’t the first time I’ve done this on the blog. I’m going to ask for your help with composing a set. On Thursday I’m appearing on the Australian daytime show ‘The Circle’. I have to do a tiny amount of standup – about three minutes – before chatting to them on the couch. The vibe of the show is, roughly, ‘Richard and Judy’ or ‘Daybreak’ or one of these things: people talking entertainingly yet politely about current issues before a studio audience of retired/unemployed people and a TV audience of the same plus students, invalids, and the millions more people who make daytime TV the phenomenon it is.
No swearing. No crudeness. Nice palatable topics. And all very concise.
Could someone either subject some bits of material from my existing ‘canon’, or write some specially and post it here?
That would be really helpful. Thank you. I’m about to do my show. It’s almost sold out tonight. But it is a cheap night. Not that I’ll be putting in less effort than usual.
Daytime ideas!! Thank you.
