The Friday Album Cover #11

Last night I was asked if, as an "up and coming comedian" I would be interested in serving as a patron to a small but important charity.

After I had picked myself up from the floor I politely declined, explaining that I don't feel I have a big enough profile to be in any way beneficial to even the smallest of charities. In actual fact, I don't have any profile - they may as well have asked a man drinking from a buckfast bottle in a brown paper bag if a patronage role would be of interest to him.

Secondly, bring described as "up and coming" (or a "comedian" for that matter) lead me to question if the woman who made the enquiry had herself been over indulging in the nectar of the destitute.

Madness I tells ya!

And now, on with the show...


An easy one I think you'll agree.

Up and coming is a nice compliment, so why not take it?

"they may as well have asked a man drinking from a buckfast bottle in a brown paper bag if a patronage role would be of interest to him" - no thanks, but cheers for considering me.

Californication it is! Congrats.

Medbh: You are correct - but Irish people and compliments often don't mix too well. Self deprecation is the way forward for me!

maybe it was "the bad ambassador is a stand up and coming to this fundraiser to provide laughs".
