Showbiz Tip #2: “There’s No Business Without The Show & No Show Without The Business” (this one is a gem, remember it and keep it close to your heart)

Some of my earliest forms of entertaining involve dancing around the living room to my dad’s Elvis LPs, pretending to be Tarzan with a drumstick sword, for my brother’s entertainment. In primary school (age 7), I performed in a pantomime as Big Daddy (a famous British wrestler), then continued in secondary school, dancing as a T-Bird and acting in “The Little Shop of Horrors.” …The conjuring bug was soon around the corner.

However my earliest memory, and perhaps my first enchantment, was with Puppetry. Watching the Muppets as a child sparked my passion for Variety Entertainment. The rapid-fire jokes, songs, and magical elements captivated me. Jim Henson, who brought characters to life, deeply inspired me!
One of my most cherished possessions is a response letter from the Henson family (see above image), who asked Frank Oz on my behalf for a picture or poster of Audrey II from “Little Shop of Horrors,” which he directed. Frank Oz, the original voice of Fozzie Bear, Yoda (Star Wars), and was Jim Henson’s right-hand man. 

“CUE” one of my all-time favourites from the Muppets soundtrack: “Lydia the Tattooed Lady.” PS They don’t make them like this anymore!!! PPs I secretly love this album but don’t tell anyone … please!
