Plenty About Dick

All the Queen’s men are at it again.  I haven’t been this wound up about the English since Closing Ceremonies!  Heartthrob Eric Idle will release “What About Dick” as digital download on November 13.  A raucous play (with songs) featuring Russell Brand, Eddie Izzard, Billy Connolly, Tim Curry, Jane Leeves, Tracey Ullman, Jim Piddock and Sophie Winkleman.  I may faint.

“These people are people that live for laughter.  They are dangerous people to be around.  They’ll do anything.”  — Russell Brand

Please do not confuse my transparent preference for English culture as anti-American sentiment.  Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert keep me patriotic enough, and I shudder to think where the world would be without Chicago Improvisation and Harvard wit.  I just like the English more.  Anglophilia is in my blood.
