Let’s all help fellow Brit Alex find a job!

Alex Irving

Say goodbye to quaint English country garden trestle tables and hello to condo patios where you have to book the BBQ!

Do you know what propaganda is? It’s when a Cockney takes a long look at Alex’s resume … and likes what he sees.

Alex contacted Brits in Toronto with the exciting news that he’s coming to Toronto on March 19 and would like to get a job ASAP.

“I have extensive experience in VIP client and supplier management and also in team management. Basically I’m looking for something in sales/ business development or partnership management.”

A quick scan of his resume using the patented HR slush pile bot reveals more: “I would best describe myself as a highly ambitious, self-motivated leader with an entrepreneurial spirit and strong desire for personal and professional growth. A keen focus on relationships is something I pride myself on maintaining to a high level with friends, colleagues and clients alike.”

So, if any connected Brits out there remember what it’s like to come to a new city and try to make a go of it, please reach out to Alex via his e-mail alexirving8 AT hotmail DOT COM or his LinkedIn profile.

And A Scotch Egg: A British-style panel show

And A Scotch Egg

We can see Mr. Bean’s jacket and some mashed potato, but that’s about it

Dan e-mailed to let us know about a British-style panel show called And A Scotch Egg.

And A Scotch Egg is everything you love about British panel shows, brought to you live on stage every month at Comedy Bar.

In each show two hilarious teams of comedians face off in a series of quizzes, games and challenges in order to see who has the right combination of wit and wisdom to win the competition — and with it the people’s ovation and fame forever!

The theme for their first show is SCIENCE!

Team Marmalade: Mike Payne (captain) with special guests Lexa Graham and Joey Harlem.

Team Horseradish: Peter Fraser (captain) with special guests Brian Millward and Chris Sandiford.

Hosted by Dan Donnelly.

So if that sounds like a bit of a giggle, the first one is at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 17 for $10 a ticket.
