That's a shame, I'm on my honeymoon. Do people think Tina would prefer this to Iceland?

First, congrats on the upcoming nuptials. Second, West Yorks over Iceland? Don't even ask, just pre-book your tickets for Guy's show, Mrs Ped will love it ;)

For a honeymoon, I think you should push the boat out and go to Waitrose. Or Sainsbury's at the very least.

I foolishly passed on his show in Exeter some years ago when he came down to the Mansons guitar show. This is a bit too far.

I'm probably going to regret asking, but Mr Pratt seems to be a 'marmite' character on this forum, what has he done to deserve that? He seems a pretty normal well rounded type of guy?

What? You don't know?

He played a Jazz on The Delicate Sound of Thunder. He deserves everything he gets.*

*Just kidding. Great player & raconteur. I've got a lot of time for him.

Don't go there. Long before I'd even heard of Basschat and its predecessors I believe his enjoyment of the forum was ruined somehow. Not sure of the circumstances but words were had and he left (I think).

I like the bloke's public persona from the bit I've seen and I'd be happy to buy him a drink or at least offer him a handshake if I ever met him.

One of the professionally offended accused him of saying something racist, IIRC.

I had a few pints and a chat with him once after a comedy gig in Leicester a few years ago, and he was really good company - witty, knowledgeable and full of amusing stories.
