They Want Me To Jump Off A Bridge!

May 28th, 2011 by Kennedy

84 feet above the River Tyne in Newcastle sits the regions landmark bridge. 2 days ago a so-called ‘friend’ of mine signed me up to zip-line from the thing, across a river – all in the name of charity. There are 3 problems.

  1. I am terrified, all out petrified of heights.
  2. My biggest fear in life is drowning.
  3. I don’t like high-speeds.

I hate rides at theme parks, they’re too high and too fast but at least they’re permanent. What my friend Amanda is forcing me to do is chuck myself off a bridge, over a river (slow, terrible drowning) at a very fast rate along a zip-line.

It gets worse. You might know that I am a bit on the vain side of things…and they want me to do it dressed as a super hero.

Yes it’s for charity, it’s for Smile For Life children’s charity and so I have a hard time turning it down. BUT…I’ll only do it with enough support.

Truthfully my initial response to Amanda’s Tweet was “@iamyoulimited you can f**k off”. The problem is that Amanda has been on a number of my persuasion training courses and used my own evil schemes against me.

So here’s the deal:

If 1000 people combined tweet @mindofkennedy saying “I want @mindofkennedy to jump off the Tyne bridge for Smile For Life Childrens Charity” and posts to similar effect on this Facebook page…I’ll do it. I’ll probably cry, but I’ll do it okay? But there must be at least a thousand, not one less or I’ll just blame that as my excuse to bottle it.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw

Great to see #lesmiserables today. Some of the best cast in a few years. Although I thought Javert was quite poor today. Brilliant show!

Quick #nandos before #LesMiserables matinee with @theroberttemple

What a night! Fantastic performances all round at #42ndstreet #london #theatre

So I went to the record shop and I said "What have you got by The Doors?" He said: "A bucket of sand and a fire blanket!" - Tim Vine
