In a curious quirk of fate, I happened to hear and get tickets to a filming of a Dutch television show called College Tour. It’s quite a fun program where they get a bunch of college students together to ask a famous person (Desmond Tutu to Susan Sarandon to the guy who kidnapped the heir to the Heinekin fortune) pretty much anything under the sun… and the show I got tickets to involved the American comedian David Sedaris!
Edit: embedding does not seem to work well with the Dutch news site, so the link to the video is here.
Naturally I had to ask a question if I was already sitting there, and you can see it at around 19:50 in the show itself. Note that this is a Dutch television show that airs on Friday nights so while my part is ok the entire show not exactly safe for work- for example, at one point they have him read from 50 Shades of Grey…
All told my Dutch television debut was also interesting just because it was also a simple introduction to the world of TV editing- my question went as far as the segue into American politics and that part came afterwards, yet I’m still mysteriously shown as standing and nodding the whole time! So that was interesting in itself, but all in all quite an enjoyable experience and I don’t think I embarrassed myself too badly on Dutch national television debut.
