SETTING: A VICTORIAN STEAM RUN ‘MACHINE’ IN AN 80S WAREHOUSE
Evolution stops here.
A man I knew whose master had died in the crash came to me and said:
“Please. I have no position. I have no master. My legs have fallen off and I have a pain in my anus. Four thousand francs, that’s all I have. Please… Please… Please will you sell me four thousand francs worth of this thing.”
Life is by no means clean, but we do what we can.
Who needs money when you're funny?
The big attraction everywhere
Will be Simon Smith and his dancing bear
It's Simon Smith and the amazing dancing bear
RANDY NEWMAN - SIMON SMITH AND HIS AMAZING DANCING BEAR
Shunt typically conjures up a brilliant coup de théatre that will linger in the memory long after more coherent shows have vanished.
On a night when the dark forces come out to play, this evening is one that will not be forgotten.
Oh what a nightmare I had. And I mean this as praise.
