Hannah Isherwood Stand Up
Close your eyes in fond memory of Pete Sampras. Remember how he swept across a tennis court, fluid in motion, like an eel on a water slide. Relive those almighty serves that were struck with such force, it was like a speeding juggernaut obliterating a wandering toad. All hail his hairy back and tongue that was slightly too big for his mouth. And go bonkers, because it’s his 38th birthday right now! That’s right, it’s right now! No doubt Pete’s got Pat Cash and his band booked in, Becker on cocktails. Hence we thought we’d get him a gift too, so we sat for seven hours in a stationary car, singing ideas to one another in the style of Whitney Houston, before it boiled down to a toss up between a new tennis racket made of wood, or a clip of great friend of the site Hannah making her stand up comedy debut. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Sampras!
