My friend Tony, who got us involved with Help For Heroes, and at one point was having serious talks with us about being our manager, happens to be friends with Al Murray, so he got me a ticket to the filming of his show Happy Hour with a backstage pass. Very funny show, and when I met the man himeself he was very nice, and a bit pissed, although rather disappointingly on red wine rather than beer. I was also informed that the beer he drinks on the show is non-alcoholic. Still, the beer I was drinking that night was free, so who could complain. I made friends with a guy called Tim too, although he hasn’t yet replied to my email, but maybe it went into his junk folder and he thinks that I’m a twat for not emailing him. Who knows.
I also met Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze, and stood very close to Peter Davison (Dr Who, All Creatures Great and Small) and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (oh, you know who he is).
The show goes out on the 21st March.
