I met this guy very briefly when I visited Singapore in July. I think it’s fantastic that he’s got this far against all the odds, including the doubts of some of his so called friends who I’m sure will be right behind him now that he’s in with a good chance of winning the final at the start of September.
Now you’re talking.
Finally Chris has got his site going. HE was in my year at school. Hadn’t seen him in years until last year when I read he was trying a bit of stand-up comedy in and around London. I went to see him in Wimbledon and he was pretty good considering it must take balls of cast iron to stand up in front of an expectant sometimes hostile audience and to promis to make them laugh.
This month he’s giving the Edinburgh festival a shot with his one-man show “As Seen on TV”. Speaking of which, I did see him on TV just tonight in a show on BBC2 about the festival. Chris was only on for about 5 seconds, but to be casually channel hopping and for the lad who used to sit next to me at school to suddenly pop up on national telly was awesome.
Good on ya Chris and the best of luck.
This is fascinating.
Weren’t we all at 16? And some of us still are. 🙂
Tell me about it! I had already read too much on Wikipedia. I told Rob about the show late on Sunday night and by yesterday evening he’d downloaded and watched the whole series while most of us have only got to episode 3 or 4. Great show, glad you like it. Now p**s off and let me watch it in peace. 🙂
Actually he’s been pretty good now I told him I don’t want any more spoilers.
I wondered how long it would be before Hollywood would cash in. And apparently a Third 9/11 movie is planned. Maybe in 2009 we’ll get something on the London Bombings. Although something tells me it won’t be that long. 🙁
Thin end of the wedge? Probably not.
I met the two English guys who were trying to sell this idea at ICAN’s conference in South Africa last December. At that time they seemed to think that noone was taking them seriously.
That’s it, I am completely hooked and sucked in by Lost which is a US import currently showing on Channel 4 and E4 in the UK. The reasons I like this are far too many, and probably not massively different from e reasons millions of other people like Lost. For episode reviews see Billie Doux site.
