In 2004, Freedumb saw me collaborate with the comedienne Janice Phayre. Janice and I both thought writing a ‘parody of a political satire show’ was a good idea.
It was not. The show featured the two of us playing a hapless couple bent on selling ‘freedom’ but making all the wrong choices.
A one point we ‘buy’ a Mexican slave child called Pico off of the internet to save him from a life of slavery only to discover that he is actually a small Mexican man with a penis for a leg who molests Janice when I’m not looking.
Janice kills Pico and in the ensuing fight we kill each other and are then re-incarnated as snails!
Needless to say, Freedumb took a critical drubbing and we lost our shirts.
I saw it as life’s way of keeping me humble.
