Puppet show

More unbridled YouTube madness – yes, this is displacement activity. I am supposed to be writing a speech and then I have to write an 800-word magazine article. For free. On top of my day job of reading/editing manuscripts and wrangling small children. So, this:

Nina Conti is a ventriloquist of genius. No, really, she is fantastic and very funny. The grumpy monkey is a great character (“My heart’s not in this”, “It’s not my fault I sound like Sean Connery” etc) – and the last bit, three minutes in, with him singing is unbelievable. There is an interview with her here.

Yeah - I guess she's cornered the creepy misogynist foul-mouthed monkey market
