Some unexpected entertainment for the nation's finance directors

"[A] glittering black-tie Awards Dinner will be held on 17 April at The Dorchester...the highest profile celebration of the role of the Finance Director".

I cannot imagine that FDs are the most radical of people, but the entertainment for the evening is coming from "the fabulous Jo Brand". I am NOT making this up.

This is the woman who claims "I haven't suddenly shifted from left wing to Tory", and of whom The Independent has written, "Her act contains more swearing and sexual references than the entire work of Tarantino and Cronenberg put together".

Either the bean counters are going to be taken way outside their comfort zone, or else Brand has decided that paying the mortgage etc is a rather higher priority these days.

'My material is for old ladies like me, women gently easing into HRT' says Jo. Should be a cracking evening.
This actually brings to mind a piece by Boris Johnson from a few months ago in the Spectator where he sang the praises of awards ceremonies. A booming industry apparently (and partly responsible for Hezza's sizeable fortune).

How did Jo Brand manage to get other people to regard her as a comedienne, given that she has never offered anything even vaguely amusing - with the possible exception of her hairstyle?

The only good thing you can say about Jo Brand is, if you hung her up and cured her, her thighs could feed a family of four through an entire winter.

OK - how about Hitch-o-rama? Hitch in His Gait? Or do you want to drop Hitch entirely?

As this has morphed into The Hitch (as we so fondly remember him) thread, can I just mention that he has proposed, over on Guido, to name the next warship built HMS Margaret Thatcher. (Someone else followed up with HMS Iron Lady, which is also good.)

For Hitch, I suggest "The Drop".
