Paul Foot: Image Conscious
Bizarre stand-up from the madcap comedian, who discusses the problems experienced by soft-shell crabs and the merits of iceberg lettuce.
Greetings. I am one of the world’s comedians and I’m here to tell ye about my show. Have you ever considered the unique predicament of the soft-shell crab? Well I have. That animal is absolutely ridiculous. What about the many, MANY problems that occur when organising a suburban orgy? The catering, for example. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, which incidentally is a terrible type of lettuce.
