Funnily enough, the writer of 'I am not an animal', welsh comic Peter Baynham, was also co-writer of the very funny film Borat. Thankfully Peter Baynham and Sacha Baron Cohen have yet to succumb to any fatal illnesses and are still very much alive.
I just found a short article written by Peter Baynham, a few years ago, which fits in well with the recent posts on comedy and death. An extract:
Laugh at cancer. Laugh at MS. Laugh - respectfully - at my dad demanding his testes be used for a last game of snooker. He would have found it hilarious. Laugh at the scientist who last week offered his support for I am Not an Animal, offering us a visit to go and see how happy his animals were. Thank you very much Professor Morton, but that strikes me as about as sensible as the makers of Life is Beautiful accepting a dinner invite from the Nazi party.
I guess part of the solution is to not take life too seriously and laugh as much as you can?Go Top
