I'm off to the CruiseMates/John Heald Test Your Sanity Cruise, thankfully, very shortly!!
So, I'm in need of some ammunition. Tell me your very best John Heald stories. I'm sure there's 100s of them out there.
How many stories can there be? He does the same routine on every cruise... complete with the passenger-with-the-hysterical-name and the unfortunate kick in the groin. It all seemed so beentheredonethat on our second cruise with him.
I've cruised with John a couple of times as well. And sure, there's a couple of shows he does which are "the same" each cruise, but the different people doing the different characters still make it fun and interesting, I think.
But there is also the interaction of John and the passengers off the stage that make him the special "character" he is. I'm hoping some of these stories will come out here too.
