Communication: Get a Good Start

Reflecting on his stage performance the previous day, actor, Michael Palin, pens this entry in his diary for April 2, 1979:

“If it starts well, then there is great laughter all through, but if something goes wrong at the beginning (God knows why) it can go in silence.”
