Taking your broom to Clapham

Hola. Hope you are well.

So Boris Johnson wants to become a MP (he probably would like to be Prime Minister).

As he looks to the future, I thought it might be nice to look back on his role as Mayor of London and the job he’s done. A job he’s held since 2008.

Despite living in London for almost 4 years I couldn’t think of his main achievements. I do remember that after the London riots he did take his broom to Clapham to help with the clean up. When I say help, he turned up, got chastised by the public and then left again but for the purpose of this blog let’s just stick with help.

I’m hoping you can help me by answering the question, What has Boris Johnson done for London? You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

That’s Entertainment

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was Edinburgh over the weekend (apologies if I didn’t see your show).

One show I did see was Stewart Lee’s. Stewart Lee is what could be described a thinking man’s comedian, who relies on little more than standing on a stage¬†deconstructing his jokes and social attitudes.

Another show I saw, courtesy of a free ticket was,¬†‘The Lady Boys of Bangkok’. Due to an upgrade I ended up right next to the stage, which was a little concerning, especially as they were more than happy to drag audience members up to ‘contribute’ to the show.

I would say The Lady Boys of Bangkok is a show that is at the opposite end of the entertainment spectrum to that of Stewart Lee’s, in that it relies on big production values, uptempo music, dance routines, a dwarf (small person), and glamorous women who were born male. Perhaps Stewart Lee could add a few of these elements to his next tour.

Anyway, just for my own records, has anyone else at the festival seen Stewart Lee and The lady Boys of Bangkok? You can let me know via the comments button or via twitter @anunknowncomic

Cheers

Opening a can of beans

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was interested to see that Chris Martin (Coldplay) is back eating meat after splitting from his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow a strict vegetarian. The implication being that his decision to not eat meat during his marriage was a decision influenced by his wife. With this in mind, what would be the first thing you’d give up/take up, if you were to split with your current partner? Let me know via the comments button, or on twitter @anunknowncomic

In other showbiz wedding news, Cheryl Cole recently got married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Apparently her husband spent ¬£300 000 on the engagement and wedding ring. I’m sure no one reading this has that kind of money to spend on a wedding ring but I am interested to know how much you’ve spent on a wedding ring. Maybe you’ve been married a few times and so collectively you’ve spent a fair whack on wedding rings . Alternatively, I’d like to hear from people who’ve spent very little on a wedding, the cheaper the better and how was it received?

And finally…. in matters closer to home, my other half, unbeknown to me decided to take our only tin opener to work, meaning I had to improvise when for lunch I needed to open a tin of beans. For those interested, I used a hammer and a knife and made holes all round the can until I was able to remove the lid. Let me know when you’ve used an item for something other than what it was designed for.

Til next time, stay safe!
