His stories revolved largely around his desire to be famous and his encounters with various celebrities. From living in the African jungle for a reality TV show to awkward encounters with celebrities after being dumped, they were endlessly entertaining. You could imagine the calories he must have been shedding as he energetically rattled off anecdote after anecdote, the audience themselves breathless with non-stop laughter.
There wasn’t a single lull, with even the weakest story about tennis player Kim Clijsters ultimately paying off. When he turned to his personal life and recalled being dumped, Creasey showed his jokes could be just as deprecating and hilarious when aimed at himself. If he is half as entertaining on the next season of Kendra, I might just have a new favourite show.
