(Update: here’s the silliest bit of the show)
Just to say I’m going to be on Frank Skinner’s show, Opinionated, tomorrow night. Well… tonight. I’m typing this in the small hours of Thursday morning. I’ve just got back from recording it in Maidstone. So, from where I’m standing, I was on it tonight and I’m going to be on it tonight. It’s as confusing as flying between continents on New Year’s Eve. But that may just be because I haven’t had enough sleep.
Anyway, it’s on Thursday at 10pm on BBC Two. I hope it’ll be a good show - you never really know when you’re on something, what it would seem like to somebody watching, especially if they record for a long time and edit to half an hour. But the recording was fun, Frank was great and I’m an increasingly big fan of the other guest, Greg Davies (who was also on when I did the last series of this) - he’s a really lovely man, and very funny.
The Maidstone audience were great too. I like it that they started the show a little cool and suspicious (who wouldn’t be?), but then started laughing and it all warmed up a lot; after a while, everyone started hugging each other. You’ll figure out why if you see the show…
Anyway, I’ve no idea if I was entertaining but I spent a lot of time laughing so I’m pretty sure the others were. Hope you enjoy it if you watch.
