Former Talkie Toaster turns prankster.

25 May, 2001

Back when reddwarf.co.uk was just beginning, Mr Flibble met up with magician, comic and former Talkie Toaster John Lenahan. Having chatted about the finer points of playing an inanimate object, John discussed his new project - Hoaxbusters, due to go out on ITV on Sunday, May 27th at 10.50pm. Talking to Mr Flibble, John told us that, "There isn't that much difference between being a magician and being a thief, really."


"It's me just going around the world, perpetrating scams," he says of the one-off show. "We took out a stall in the Lincoln exhibition in Dallas and we sold holidays in Buckingham Palace. We sold people parts in Hollywood movies....I also did the John Lenahan Guide to Drinking For Free, taught people how to scam drinks off people in bars. And there's plenty more where that came from!"
