_MG_1647Hello. Here’s the guestbook for you to sign, let me know you’ve visited, whether you enjoyed the stay – was the bed comfortable? Breakfast OK? Did you like how the toast always taste that much nicer served in halves on those little metal racks?

Also, if you have Spotify, feel free to leave a song on the HELP SCHNEIDER LISTEN TO DECENT MUSIC playlist by CLICKING HERE. Then let me know which song you’ve left in the guestbook.

You can also CLICK HERE to tell me the FIRST RECORD I EVER BOUGHT playlist. I’d love to know. I’m strange like that.

Hi David. Have just added 'No Aphrodisiac' by the Whitlams (a splendid Australian band) to your Spotify playlist. Hope you like it, in all its maudlin, erudite beauty. I greatly enjoy your presence on Twitter. And, although it was many moons ago, I still have to laugh out loud whenever I recall your appearance as 'the illusionist' on KMKY with Alan Partridge. Ciao.

Hi David,

Love your website! I first discovered your talent when a lad at school lent me his The Day Today VHS collection, which was the good basis for a relationship! Some years later we still guffaw at its contents.

Keep up the funny work

David, just a quick note to say that I really enjoyed your talk on the history of Yiddish at the Oxford Chabbat the other week. My daughter (Olivia, 11) and I have been following you on TV and film for several years now; OK, she just knows you as the CBBeebies clown, but is a big fan. We're both particularly focussed on your being an explicitly British Jewish comedian/performer (you ARE Jewish, right!?), and how your performances have a cultural context to convey in contrast with the more prevalent American Jewish performers. Do you like Sarah Silverman? I know you must have looked at Lenny Bruce. With Sacha Cohen being the grandest exception, there don't seem to be many explicitly Jewish comedians on British TV. Best of luck to you in your career and I just wanted you to know you've got two fans in tow and we'll following your performances as well as your Tweets. If you're dropping by again in the future, please drop me a line and if it's not a too late school night, I'll make sure to bring Olivia along to shake your hand.

I remember Token Stonkena was a "beautiful assistant", but what was the "magician's" name? (With the amazing walking legs!! HAHAHAAHA

Following you now on Twitter - always good value ;)

Hi David!

I've been a great fan for many years, ever since watching 'Back to School Mr. Bean' as a child. I love how you have brought a similar branch of humour to a new generation with 'Uncle Max'. :)

Keep up the fantastic work!

Hi David,

I am a reporter at a newspaper called the Camden New Journal...

I am doing a piece on the new Jewish Museum in Albert Street, and saw the amazing Yiddish Karoake exhibit!

I'd really like to have a natter about it, and hear your grandfather's story... would be possible?

Please could you drop me an email, or give me a call? 020 7419 9000

So you don't spend ALL your time on Twitter then. Nice one.

Congratulations to yet another way of promoting your talent - now become a proper Jewish star ;-)

Hi Dave/David,

I've left three songs on Spotify for you. "Fucker", "Butcher Pete" and "Bongo Bongo Bongo"

I hope they provide you with a certain degree of entertainment on one level or another, as you have done for me over the years.

Sorry, I'm just not very good at compliments.

Great site.

Nice to see you on Twitter too - best of luck with it all - you'll soon be giving that Fry chap a run for his money!

You look the same now as you did the last time I saw you in person in Edinburgh many moons ago. I was dying on my arse at the Fringe at the time. Please let us know where you found the secret of eternal youth, my Mrs would be pathetically grateful.

    Hi Dave – 1st record I bought was Johnny Ray singing Walk & Talk with my Lord (gospel) on 78rpm c’1950 (it was the B side but I didn’t know that at the time as I was only 11 years old). I’ve added The Snake and My Attorney bernie (I have the sheet music for these if you like them and have sung them at the Vortex open mike in Stoke Newington). My son and his wife run a friendship club at Woodford Liberal Shul on occasional Sunday afternoons and may contact you in the near future about doing a short light hearted programme for the visitors (‘cos I told them how wonderful you are)

    Van Halen’s Fair Warning. Tols my Mom it was Kenny Rogers so she’d let me buy it.
