Have you ever tried playing scramble? Or tried putting a sentence together without using a particular word? Not to mention trying to do it without using a very common letter. It is not as easy as it seems.
However, Comedian Matt Colbo, who enjoyed doing an impression of Tom Scott on a couple of occasions, showed that with practice you can do more than just construct a sentence without using a particular word.
In a recent video, Colbo took inspiration from Gasdby author Ernest Vincent Wright, and decided to record a three-minute video of a monologue he wrote. However the twist is, he did not use the letter E in any form. “This particular production will not contain any words that contain that symbol that I cannot say now. Choosing words without said symbol in a grammatical fashion is proving difficult but I did want to find out if it was at all within my ability to do so.”
Colbo even showed his dedication by choosing not to even use said symbol even though his father’s life depended upon it.
“Chris: It’s your dad he’s been abducted what the people said they just need you to tell him that you love him and then they’ll let him go that’s it
Matt: I can’t”
