Feeling down? You need some Chris Grimes

If, like me, you still miss the street humour of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Or the zany, mental gyrations of Spike Milligan who later morphed into the king of comedy, John Cleese. Or maybe the golden moments of Monty Python along with that brilliantly sarcastic, cynic Blackadder?

I have a cunning plan for you.

Step over and visit The First Post, Britain’s best cyber newspaper/magazine and see Chris Grimes in his latest, hilarious video short, "Knock, knock." Chris is undoubtedly in the footsteps of the masters of mirth. He describes himself here on his website thus:

“Actor, Comedy Improvisation Performer, Comedy Writer/Creative Short Film Maker, Voice-over Artist, Drama Workshop Leader and …Washing Machine Impressionist."

Yes, he plays a washing machine in a sketch on his website. He’s also Director of Wibble Films who made “Knock, knock.” No surprise then that he is a graduate of both the Central School of Speech and Drama In London and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

How many men can play Chekhov AND a washing machine! He is truly a national treasure.
