    Time to reveal my secret past 24th Jan 06 at 4:03 PM
    People who remember me on my first TV appearances doing the 'Deal of the Day' on Simply Money TV 2000-1 will know what's coming.....

    Every day I did a new 'funny money' character to intro and outro the clips. Having recently found the tapes, I've had a few edited together.

    Windows Media/Quicktime
    (note these files should stream, but may download depending on your software, it is a sizeable 10Mb file so will take some time)

    Not sure I could get away with doing them now, but they used to be a really good way to intro the characters. Does anyone on the forum remember them originally?

    In fact I actually did used to perform stand-up comedy for a couple of years in 1996-7, whilst trying to relieve the tedium of financial PR, so there was some background there too!
