Unhappy clappy

Tulkinghorn was amused to note Freshfields M&A partner Mark Rawlinson being less than impressed with the compere at a recent corporate shindig.

After one too many rather unpolitically correct jokes from the stage, Rawlinson took matters into his own hands and tried to enlist the help of Slaughters partners to get the comedian off.

Unfortunately Rawlinson’s attempt to start a slow hand clap failed, leaving the congregation being forced to endure another excruciating 15 minutes.

Top marks for effort, though.
