The Man With A Long Chin's Diary

 

Celeb Stand-In

?/6/98-?/6/98

4 June 1998 - CELEB STAND-IN

I've been given the job of impersonating celebrities when they get sick, or sent to prison for a while.

Last night I had to stand in for former Tomorrow's World presenter Howard Stapleford, who had been booked as after-dinner speaker at a sort of science thing. Unfortunately, I misread my briefing, and thought I was meant to be impersonating Howard Hughes. You should have seen the look of surprise on the faces of the crowd when I became a recluse and designed the largest seaplane ever conceived.


5 June 1998 - CELEB STAND-IN

I've been given the job of impersonating celebrities when they get sick, or sent to prison for a while.

Last night I had to stand in for Winnie Mandela and give a talk on apartheid. Unfortunately, I spilt coffee over my commission, and smudged the ink. As a result it read that I had to impersonate Prime Minister Winston Churchill. You should have seen the look of surprise on the faces of the crowd when I turned up in the back of a hearse, complete with all the trimmings of a full state funeral.
