Megan’s opening speech

You may have gathered that you are going to die tonight.  You shouldn’t be grave about this; there is an upside, for we will endeavour to give you a performance of a lifetime, one that you will never forget.  We have lined up for you a spectacle of events that will make you die of laughter.  Entertainment is what we do best and I promise you, you have never experienced, or will ever experience, a night quite like this.  This show will be something that you will treasure for the rest of your lives (however short they may be) – one that you will take with you to the grave…


I am SO entertaining

•7 December 2007 • Leave a Comment

My character is basically a gameshow host. I am very smiley, in a not-quite-but-sort-of-like-First-Night way. I gesticulate frequently and make patronizingly affable comments whenever I am given the chance. I desperately want everyone to love me, and I think that I am doing a great job at it.


my character

My character is pretty destructive but i dont carry the same one through for the whole performance.  I find that my true character is the ‘dark horse’ who appears pretty gormless in most scenes.  I then become the act of extreme destruction on becoming wasted and extremely frustrated and a little cuckoo at the end.(mad).
