Monday Mirth

Well, maybe not mirth, which sounds like it might be rofl, but I think the clip is funny. Of course if performed by white peeps, it would be racist, and relying on stereotypes as this does, perhaps it still is.

I adore Sanjeev Bhaskar OBE (hmm, his name is not unlike that of a friend, whose origins are very different to Sanjeev's). Sanjeev first came to my notice in the tv show, The Kumars at No. 42. He is one of the funniest comedians in Britain, can perform serious tv acting with aplomb, is an author along with being Chancellor of the University of Sussex. If it is like here, it is actually the Vice Chancellor who does all the public speaking and the hard work, rather than the chancellor. It seems he can do anything in the performing arts, front of stage and behind the scenes.

He is made up to look older in this clip. A little elephant knowledge will help you get the last line.

  6. I saw him play a serious role in a Police drama mini series recently and he was excellent confirming your assessment of his versatility.
