Donald Trump is hoping to get The Black and White Minstrel Show commissioned for American television.
Local actor and singer, Peter Thape ‘blacked up’ to play one of the minstrels in the 1970’s, and hasn’t been able to find work since.
Thape thought his career was over, and couldn’t believe his luck when the leader of the free world phoned him at his sheltered hostel yesterday
‘Good to see there’s still a few of us left,’ said Thape.
‘Pass me the boot polish,’ he added.
