"SFE," that's great. The first sitcom I worked on as a PA had Bob Ellison as a Consultant. I didn't know at first that was his role. He'd come in I think for a day or two, spit out jokes, and be gone. I said to myself, Now that's the gig I want!

Kia ora Ken,

I live I Sydney, and I saw this is Saturday’s Sydney Morning Herald.
I don’t think it’s online, so I took a photo for you - unlooked for support is often a great boost!

Oh sorry, I can’t paste a photo so I’ll try a different avenue.
