look at little piggy see show she squeals my advice to you bitch, get a face peel loser loser loser loser
T ALL BEGAN WHEN COMPOSER RICHARD THOMAS - A HUGE JERRY SPRINGER FAN, - WAS WATCHING TV WITH THE SOUND TURNED DOWN.
do you want some come and get it come and get it
RICHARD THOMAS Eight people on stage screaming at each other you had a chorus, an audience screaming at them and I suddenly thought the parallels between this and opera are really obvious ...loads of shouting and no one can understand a word that's been said.
you're so tragic you're so sad cos your brother is your dad
SO HE ORCHESTRATED THE CURSES AND SLANDERS AND HOWLS OF DESPAIR AND AMERICA'S BEST KNOWN TRASHY TV TALK SHOW HAS BECOME LONDON'S HOTTEST HIT
kill all gays, kill all gays, welcome to the show tremont
IN THE SECOND ACT JERRY GOES TO HELL, HOSTING THE ULTIMATE TALK SHOW BETWEEN GOD AND THE DEVIL,
RICHARD THOMAS he reconciles the forces of good and evil STEWART LEE which is something he never does on the show he always avoids conflict resolution RICHARD THOMAS its the greatest piece of conflict resolution in the history of opera...///and also its got funny swearing in it.
i just want to fing dance
which is the main selling point (laughs)
