Today’s voiceover advent treat comes with a warning:
Yeah, that’ll do. The bottom line is that this is a short comedy routine which will polarise its audience. Some will love it, others may well find it rather offensive. If you fall into that other 50%, I do hope you’ll come back tomorrow when I promise that the subject matter will be all fluffy and cuddly and nice.
This routine was performed back when I used to do stand up comedy. That particular aspect of my life is really just a memory now and by the time I had stopped, the joke felt a little dated. However, thanks to what we more recently learned about select iconic figures of the 1970s, the whole thing became relevant again.
Incidentally, if you didn’t grow up in the UK in the 70s and 80s, this will mean pretty much nothing to you.
See you tomorrow.
