Merry Christmas.

Seasonal goodwill to all, even those who didn't buy the Clare In The Community Calendar. Bastards.

Went to a talk at BBC TV centre about What BBC1 Wants From Comedy Writers. About 80 people crammed in a tiny room for two and a half hours. Basically, and here I am paraphrasing, BBC1 doesn't know what it wants but will know it when it sees it. Usually on BBC2, or BBC3.
At least 95% of the people present were white, middle class, middle aged men, and boy were we told off for it. Not coming from London made me quite an exotic minority.

Went to the BBC Radio Comedy Xmas party yesterday, where I rubbed shoulders with a host of famous people. Sandi Toksvig rubbed shoulders with peoples' hips, being surprisingly short. I think everyone was a little intimidated by my reputation, as nobody came up and spoke to me all afternoon!

Poor old royals

This is next week's Hamlet gag, only a little out of date but I liked it. So in it goes.
