Gary Le Strange: Is My Toaster Sentient?

Comedy Cuts, ITV2, 2006 (broadcast 2007; soundtrack recorded 2003)

After filming Seedy Pimp, I’m Japanese and Grey, we made a fourth video for the song Geometry in a secondary school in South London, which probably would have been the best of the lot, before finishing the day with this one in a kitchen back at London Studios and wrapping at about 10.30. You can probably see the dark, knackered desperation in my performance here. Sadly, during the editing process (which I had nothing to do with - this is all Mr Lee’s work), it became apparent that the videos were not going to be shown in their entirety and instead the final show would be a series of fast-paced, 30-second snippets. Clearly we’d filmed something else entirely and, since they were conceived as longer segments, they didn’t work in any way at all in the new format. I feel lucky Stew didn’t know this till half way through the process or none of these films would have been finished. Though obviously sad for him that he put all this effort into it apparently for nothing. Still, they’re here now, for your endless viewing pleasure. Or at least three of them are, until I manage to break into the ITV film vault and steal the rushes for the other two.
