ANT needs us

A witty ironic clever writer, Anthony Gingell known to us as ANT, who I've been editing for a year has a sketch of his coming up on British TV. I am happy to pass this message on to you guys,  - --- sorry my pals overseas cannot help unless you can get it on satellite bounced via Mars.

Good luck to ANT :afro:  I'll keep an eye open to see that, hopefully.  Make sure you remind us again when the voting's up, Geoff - I'm likely to forget, otherwise.  Brain like a sieve, me :huh:

We are working on publishing Anthony's novel 'Big Bang' over here at Adventure Books.

Ant has asked me to thank all those here at the "Doomed Cafe" who voted for him. He didn't make the winner but is through to the next round :)

Well fingered, guys!

Ant has this message for us:

Thanks to all of you that voted. The Slagg Brothers (hands up all
those who remember Whacky Races?) are thru to the next round (the
semifinals) and are on this week Friday morning at 12:30 am so will be
begging for votes around friday.

Once again thanks
ant

I'll try and remember to remind us, especially if someone reminds me!

I'll remind you, Geoff - just as long as somebody can remind me to remind you :scratch:

Well done, Ant :afro:  I watched one of the sketches last weekend (but forgot to watch on the right night).  It was about a kid who built a spaceship out of cardboard boxes, in his bedroom.  Thought it was great film making on a low budget.  There's a helluva lot more to making a film like that than most people seem to realise.

Over at AB, we are waiting for Ant to make a few small changes to 'Big Bang,' then we will be publishing it.   :cool:

That's weird :scratch:  I've just checked and I can't find it on TV, not on Sky or terrestrial.  Are you sure it's on ITV1, Geoff?  Or is it on Friday night/Saturday morning? :huh:

Hi Ed,
It really was on ITV last night - past midnight - after the Rugby.

I'm in a dilemma though cos two of the Slagg Brothers' sketches were better than the others - the card trick (stranger in the street tries to scam you with a card trick - tells you to "take any card. any card at all" so you spot and pinch his credit card just sticking out of his pocket and run off :D

There's also a funny sketch where, at a party, a voluptuous young woman tells the surprised man that she wan't to take him to bed as long as she can go on top. After seeing him being bemused and led away, the scene cuts to the action:  bunk beds!! He's told he can be "on top" next time.   

I voted for one of those but can't remember which!  Probably the latter

Oh, right - I saw the rugby was still on, at about 12:45, and assumed something was amiss :scratch:  ANT's prog didn't appear on the listings after the game, as far as I could see.  Are they on during ad breaks, or was the scheduling off?

Shoot the Writers was scheduled on ITV for 12:30 until 12:55 last night. I think the Rugby overran by 2 mins. They are all short sketches - about 4 for each group of writers. Pity they don't release them as downloadable from the website.
