INT – VICTORIAN ERA PARLOR
THE BRITISH NOBLE IS SITTING IN HIS CHAIR. IN THE CHAIR NEXT TO HIM, PERFECTLY GROOMED AND DRESSED, IS THE HIDEOUS FREAK.
Hello, and welcome back. Tonight you're watching "The Hideous Freak" starring several people. With us tonight is one of those people, J. Edwin Pendergast, the actor who played the title role, that is, the hideous freak. Thank you for being with us today, Mr. Pendergast.
Oh, the pleasure is all mine, sir, the pleasure is all mine.
So what are you doing now?
Well, I'm not doing any new projects right now. I'm just doing some of the late night talk shows. I've been on Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Jack Paar.
I see. Now, then, tell us about your experiences playing the hideous freak.
Well, some people say that it was the role I was born to play, being a hideous malformed freak and all.
But I say it was the role which I worked and slaved and laboriously, uh…labored to portray. I think I did a rather bang-up job, too.
Oh, quite, quite. Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, straight from the horse's...er, mouth. And now back to "The Hideous Freak", starring J. Edwin Pendergast who is with us today.
