Jerry Springer, onanistic Janus
Stewart Lee and Richard Thomas have spoken out against Jerry Springer, branding him a “two-faced wanker” for withdrawing his support for the musical JS:TO.
Springer was originally full of praise for the show, as Lee pointed out during the talk entitled How to Write an Opera About Jerry Springer:
Springer came to the opening night and said it was so good he wished he’d written it. Two-faced wanker. He somewhat shifted his opinion after the controversy.
He called me a neo-nazi apologist. Only his change of mind happened behind closed doors, so no one knew about it – until now.
We think he was trying to restart his political career at that point.
