A new entertainer for you today, Number 25!
“As part of continued unemployment benefit conditions, Frank was required to undergo vocational training or actively seek employment. In order to support himself through his chosen reflexology massage diploma, he hatched upon a plan that utilized his vast experience watching downloaded episodic medical dramas.
The premise of his show was simple; the execution was where it got interesting for the audience. Prior to the warm-up act “Doctor Innoculator” would appear dramatically from behind the curtain with a beaker of unmentionably disgusting effluent, quaff it to calls of “scull, scull, scull”, take a bow and exit in time for the tap-dancing. During Act 1, “The Doc” would introduce, explain and demonstrate his signs and symptoms, as they emerged, often in what many an audience member would say was way too much detail. This was followed by a brief intermission, where the audience broke for complimentary sultana cake and cold coffee whilst Frank wrapped himself in a space blanket to allow the mounting infections to fast-track.
Act 2 would open with calming classical music to accompany increasingly frantic and desperate attempts to diagnose his condition and treat the symptoms using a variety of naturopathic, homeopathic and aroma therapy tinctures, ointments, potions, dilutions, essences, balms, salves and powders. According to the programme, Act 3 was allocated to question time, but more often than not resulted in an ambulance ride, often unconscious, to the emergency ward for a stomach pump and round of antibiotics.
Frank had to abandon his act as it was increasingly difficult to find a venue with compulsory third party insurance packages he could afford that included adequate emergency medical cover. His firm grip and boyish good looks, however, ensured he was in high demand in foot fetishist circles for his invigorating appointments and happy endings.” – biography by wonko
