As a fan of British comedy author and actor John Finnemore (take a look at his “Cabin Pressure” collection), stumbling upon this two-minute sketch from a latest BBC radio broadcast was a pleasing shock.
The on-court sound results present the background for a dialog between the gamers which strikes from portentous business-speak to child-parent dialogue, ending with bloke-ish bravado.
Now, that’s what I name cheeky.
Thanks to the BBC for posting this clip from “John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme.” You can discover out extra about John Finnemore from his Wikipedia entry and his extremely entertaining weblog.
Before discovering fame as tv’s “Sherlock“, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch had already acquired a sizeable following through his role as Captain Martin Crieff in John Finnemore’s radio comedy series “Cabin Pressure.”
