Dr Mumbo

Four men walk into a toilet cubicle…

To the Media Federation Awards where Good News Week’s Paul McDermott made a brave effort of keeping the audience under control.

And he revealed that Ad Standards Bureau boss Fiona Jolly had done little for his ego, telling him just before the event started how much she had enjoyed seeing him present Spicks & Specks.  

McDermott also had an insight into his audience, saying: “Fun’s going to be had tonight. I just saw four fellas leaving the handicapped toilet together.”

He also had observations to make about the “A brave new world” theme. He said: “When it was written in 1931 it was meant to be irony. Looking around tonight, that’s clearly been lost.”

Meanwhile, Seven sales boss James Warbuton was unrepentent about his “bottom feeders” remark about pitch doctors from earlier this year, telling the audience:

“We love this work and we love to shove it up the bottom feeders.”
