Diary: Wilson’s efforts to find himself a girlfriend are, quite frankly, laughable

Peter Wilson, a consultant at media relations specialist Luther Pendragon, is doing his best to dispel the idea that PR types take themselves too seriously.

Peter Wilson, a consultant at media relations specialist Luther

Pendragon, is doing his best to dispel the idea that PR types take

themselves too seriously.



Wilson has teamed up with two budding comics to put on a sketch show,

entitled Suck it and See, at London’s Canal Cafe Theatre.



Subject matter ranges from the amateur antics of local television news

reporters to New Labour MPs and Sloaney students. PR, unfortunately,

does not get a mention.



In a press release prepared for the show, Wilson and friends grandly

state that ’as classically-trained actors’ they recognise that ’vibrant

new comedy is easier and more fashionable than doing Coriolanus or The

Bill’. And they ’fiercely believe that true comedy comes from swearing

in posh voices’.



Mercifully this is an empty threat and despite an abundance of posh

accents the show features little swearing. Perhaps this is due to

Wilson’s cunning motive for performing live. ’I hope to get a girlfriend

out of it,’ he told me.



After several performances Wilson has failed to impress the ladies.

Colleagues at Luther Pendragon commented: ’The show was great. We’re

still waiting to see if he’s got a talent for PR.’
