Stand-Up Comic

A young man walked onto the stage of Australian Idol, on crutches, with a plaster cast from his feet to his hips.

Grant Denyer introduced him as Simon.

‘It’s very brave of you to come out here,’ said Grant. ‘Please tell the audience what happened?

‘Well’ replied Simon, ‘about a year ago, I was driving with my uncle when we had a really bad accident. Unfortunately my uncle was killed outright but I survived. I was trapped in the car for six hours before I was eventually cut free. The doctors had me in surgery for 12 hours but they couldn’t save my legs.’

”That’s terrible. But I see you have legs now. Are they artificial?’ asked Grant.

‘No Grant, while I was in hospital the doctors informed me that my uncle had in fact died, but that his legs were fine and with all the advances in medical science, they could graft the bottom half of his body onto mine. As you can see the operation was successful. I have been having physiotherapy for six months and hope to be walking fully again by the end of the year.

A huge round of applause erupted from the audience and Grant responded with; ‘That’s an unbelievable story. So tonight, who are you going to be?”

‘Tonight, Grant, I am going to be Simon and Halfuncle.’

Gleefully burgled from Phil
