A difficult question to phrase but are any of you working 'professionally' on the comedy writing circuit in the UK? as i would like to do some work experience/shadowing.

I can multi-task as good as a woman.

I work hard and long for little/no pay like a Russian.

I can fetch and deliver items like a well trained beagle.

I make an excellent frapp/cappuccino.

I like taking orders.

Thanks

The company I work for is a lot like " the comedy scene."
After you have had your first breakdown it seems even more hilarious.

No. I would genuinely like to do work experience/shadowing for a comedy writer. I listed these attributes, although comically presented, as characteristics normally required by work experience people. I realsie that i am unlikely to be offered a placement, for example, with Chris Morris where my role will be to actually contribute to the work. I appreciate that i will mostly be a subsidiary player at first.

Candice,

I'm not in the UK, or writer by profession, but sometimes I feel like my day working with 13 and 14-year olds is written into a comedy sketch someplace. And can I say that all of the attributes that you mentioned would serve you well as a middle grades instructor. All, except the last one.

Good luck finding your gig.

King

She-males are very popular nowadays. You can make quite a bit of money appearing at weddings demanding cash in return for not flashing, you know.
Or maybe thats eunuchs....
Do you sleep, Candice Hitler? I'm beginning to think that you live inside my computer because you do keep popping up evey time I log on - or maybe thats just a coincidence.

I sense a temper tantrum coming on...Watch Out Poland!

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.
