The song of Carmela Vitale, inventor of the pizza thingy (it’s true)

I was devastated when they didn’t include this song in the last series because I saw it at the tryouts and absolutely loved it. So glad they did now :)

John Finnemore is the perfect dog.

Spiney Porcupine - John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme

RAT SANCTUARY SKETCH
Interviewer: So… why set up a rat sanctuary?
Sanctuary’s Owner: Ah! Well, you know… It’s a horrible job but… somebody’s got to do it.
Interviewer: …have they?
Owner: Uh, yeah.
Interviewer: Why?
Owner: Well, I mean. It’s a really horrible job! Look.
Interviewer: Yeah, I can see, but… why does anyone have to do it?
(silence)
Owner: Oh, God.
Owner’s Wife: (shrieking) YOU SEE!?
Owner: I just assumed, I mean, it’s such a horrible job!
Owner’s Wife: FIFTEEN YEARS I’VE BEEN TELLING YOU!!
Owner: I just assumed somebody had to do it!
Owner’s Wife: FIFTEEN YEARS BUT NOOOO, YOU WOULDN’T TAKE IT FROM ME!
John Finnemore’s Title

edmorrish:

Back in 2011, Radio 4 bought a sketch show to be written entirely by and mainly featuring John Finnemore. It didn’t have a title - it was bought as “John Finnemore’s Sketch Show (w/t)” (“working title”). 

It was eventually called John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme, and its third series start tonight. But several other titles were considered. Here’s the list of potential names:

  • John Finnemore’s Twenty-Eight Minutes
  • John Finnemore’s Penguin Edition 
  • John Finnemore’s Dog-Eared Penguin
  • Finnemorish
  • Finnemore’s Wake
  • Finnemore’s Almanac
  • The Finnemore Series.
  • The Finnemore Sequence
  • Finnemore’s Gazette
  • Finnemore’s Gazelle
  • The Finnemore Title
  • John Finnemore’s Three Jokes
  • John Finnemore: Satire & Whimsy
  • Finnemore’s Revenge

Eventually it was put to a vote in front of the last try-out audience: Finnemore’s Revenge vs John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme. The former won hands down. But we ignored that, because this isn’t X Factor.
