For those of you going along to the Now Show recording on Thursday night (and indeed, everyone else who will be listening to it on Friday evening at 6.30pm on Radio 4), a possible clue as to what John’s topic is this week. (Or more likely just some bloke having a wee joke with John - we will find out on Friday, either way!)
I don’t think any of us would be surprised if there was an animal connection in there somewhere, though. Pandas must be one of the few animals John hasn’t yet written a sketch about yet. They would be a useful analogy on racism and immigration, though. You know, being both black and white. The great Bill Bailey HAS written a sketch about that. :D

Simon Kane is in another play!
From the blurb:
Ring is a surreal sound journey in complete darkness and an antidote to choice. Wearing headphones that amplify every intimate detail, you are transported to another room very similar to the one you entered… But in this room you have been recognised.At times seductive, at times unnerving, Ring places the audience at the heart of a thrilling attack on their own identity.
30 Sep - 11 Oct 2014, Battersea Arts Centre, London.
Here’s a review from when it was previously performed in 2013 (also with Simon in the lead role).
And here’s another. 
And here’s a preview from this week’s Time Out London, in which it’s described as a “mind-fuck”. So if you like having your mind fucked with, this may be the night out for you!
(Note: This might be Simon’s actual walking stick, he injured himself recently and had to pull out of the remainder of the run of The Boy Who Climbed Out Of His Face - goalposthead; was it his foot he injured?).

"I put my intercostals out” is what he said.
This looks brilliant and creepy as hell, like the boy who climbed out of his face.

Okay my best friend has this man as a cousin and claims he isn’t famous. He’s on tumblr. He’s tagged in posts on tumblr. You can find him without searching. Dude, fame.

Well, relatively speaking, he isn’t famous, but he is to some of us! I have a Souvenir Programme ticket autographed by Simon and I’m following him on Twitter. So you can tell your friend that his/ her cousin is, at the very least, Tumblr-famous… (and also totally awesome)

Belating reblogging this due to being OUT OF THE HOUSE yesterday and therefore not seeing it. I know!

Hey, now that you’ve discovered these new-found gif-making powers, jfsp, how about giffing the eff (is that a thing? I’ve decided that’s a thing) out of Miranda, Spats, and the Fruitcake Croupier sketch? Although knowing you, those are already on the list!

(im on mobile and not home for a while so im answering like this so i can tag and you can reblog)
It was just John. Yes it was an offical recording, David Tyler was there and explained what was happening (he also produces Jeremy Hardy’s radio show which was what I went to see tonight John was a bonus). It was an Arthur monologue briefly explaining what happened in part 1 as an introduction to part 2. Because the decision to make it two parts was done after the original recording, John just had to record like a 30second intro. It may have been a minute long, I was in shock.


Well! That at least explains why he wasn’t able to be at tonight’s Unbelievable Truth. I bestow my forgiveness upon him. Also, Mitchell was especially funny tonight. And at least I knew in advance so had time to get over my disappointment.

Dear Mr John Finnemore the comedian,
The sea lions asked me wish you a “Happy Birthday!” on their behalf. They made this photo to celebrate your birthday, but their flippers make it quite difficult to use the internet.

Well! We will have to agree to disagree on this one. It could have been worse, though: the first take DID have dialogue, and we instantly agreed the result was way too horrible to subject John to.
