Murdoch custard pie stunt causes children’s entertainers to breakup
The children’s entertainment world was in shock today following the announcement that Mike Lamb and Brent Logan are to end their partnership. ‘There’s no denying that we have had our differences, but most of the time I’ve managed to get along with the smarmy scumbag who’s carved a good living out of my own endeavours,’ commented Lamb.
The ‘comedic differences’ appear to relate to the recent incident in which aspiring comedian Jonnie Marbles threw a custard pie at Rupert Murdoch. ‘Brent was amazed by the slapstick element, but I thought it lacked the necessary irony and pathos to engage the audience,’ said Lamb. ‘That was the beginning of the end for us.’
Logan cut a lonely figure as he left the shared dressing room for the last time. ‘I just wish that we could have talked it over, but perhaps the fake dog turd I added to the sausages on his breakfast plate was the last straw.’Click to send this story to a friend
