No, I can’t take the credit for that – that one belongs to Tim Minchin.
I’d never heard of him until I caught him on an episode of ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’. I didn’t really pay much attention to him at the time, but then the other night I turned on the goggle-box and there he was. Red hair, styled in what I can only describe as a ‘Mad Professor’. Tail-coat, crisp white shirt, smart black trousers and bare feet. And enough eye-makeup to keep even Stig (my teenage daughter) happy for some considerable time. I fell immediately, irretrievably, irrevocably in love.
I have to share this with you. If you’ve not seen this comedy genius at work, look him up.
