Snowstopper

Theatre.jpg What do you call a well-known newsreader who is about to take on a singing and dancing role in a stageshow for charity? Jon Snow! The Channel 4 news presenter with his amazing range of ties made a singing and dancing cameo in Showstopper! at Questors theatre in Ealing on Saturday night, making a special guest appearance to raise money for St Mark's hospital in Harrow. Showstopper! was a good choice; the entire thing is improvised and invites audience participation so the show can go on even if a major TV personality dries up and can't finish Memories from Cats. All this spontaneous hilarity for charity may well be Snow gathering material for his stand-up gigs in Edinburgh for the 2010 festival; has he not found anything to laugh about in the news of late?If anyone saw him on stage, let us know, we'd like a review...
