I have received a cry-from-the-heart from comedy performer and social activist Samantha Pressdee.
I think it speaks for itself…
I am trying to stay positive and have launched a new campaign #LoveinLockdown which will be documented in a reality show produced by my social enterprise Love Muffin Productions.
My heart bleeds for all the professionally homeless comedians, so I have decided I would like to adopt one.
I need someone with a good sense of humour and am finally ready to get out there and date again.
As well as the campaign and the reality show I have also launched a dating service called Plenty of Catfish. My profile video is here:
My dating profile video has already had nearly 4,000 views on Facebook. I am confident I will find ‘The One’ and inspire others to do the same. I have received some heartwarming love letters already:
“You might want to leave the mask on slightly longer for that extra erotic charge. As it emphasises your eyes.” – Mark
“I think someone who argues with their dog is pretty irresistible!!!” – Charles
And I have received some inspiring advice:
“Why were (sic) a mask in doors (sic)? It is about as much use as a cat flap on a submarine.” – Mike
I would like to invite potential male suitors to submit a dating profile video to firstname.lastname@example.org answering the same questions as Samantha.
I will assess submissions in the next episode of my reality show. Then, if I feel butterflies, I will meet the funny man on Skype and film it for the third episode so that we can spread the love in lockdown.
The show will be broadcast on my YouTube channel and my Facebook page as well as IGTV (Handle: SammiePressdee)
I have told Samantha that wanting to find a comedian as a soulmate is pointless – comics are barking and she already gets that from her dog. But she is determined.
She also tells me that, prior to the lockdown, she attended Philippe Gaulier‘s clown school in Paris…
“Sadly, I can’t return to Paris as planned in June, but he has captured my heart. Stiff competition!
Stiff competition indeed…
