British-based American comedian Lewis Schaffer had a smile on his face last night, after he was given $10 billion.
I was there when the paperwork was handed over at the Source Below club in London’s Soho.
The money was given to him by two grateful ladies who had seen his twice-weekly Free Until Famous show. The ladies were from Zimbabwe. So was the $10 billion note they gave him at the end of his show.
Lewis Schaffer told me: “John… It’s not going to change me one little bit. Zimbabwe is a great country and I love the picture of the balancing rocks. I feel very humble.”
A close-up of the note is below.
