Smile Re: Dear Dirk... A Petition ❤ ❤ ❤

Ah I'm so glad you feel the same about that

Exactly, I don't have any experience with conventions apart from going last year for the first time, I have only seen the talks on YT.
It is frustrating when guests get interrupted and you can see that Dirk is always mindful of the time he has left, after all he only has half an hour to 1 hour, I'm guessing sometimes less if things are "running" behind? If that's ever happened? Like you say they're not ridiculously structured and formal so what's a few minutes? Everyone is there to enjoy themselves at the end of the day including the guests.
It is funny how he gets side tracked and yeah, how silly that they were trying to rush him to wrap up when everyone was already there lol

He has so many stories to tell in so little time, I would love to read more about what he has to say, I know it's not the same as hearing it but for me personally, it's fine and as you say that's the great thing about writing a blog

"Life has never been easy. Nor is it meant to be. It is a matter of being joyous in the face of sorrow".
Dirk Benedict.

From one of my all-time favourite comedians....
"Laughter is the greatest music in the world and audience's come to my shows to escape the cares of life.
They don't want to be embarrassed or insulted. They want to laugh and so do I -which is probably why it works"
Ken Dodd (R.I.P)
