Joe Blogs : People are interested in people, warts and all. Plus entertainment where you don't have to think seems to be flavour of the day.

By the way, impressive CV Neil, Pushing Tin with John Cusack, Cube 2 : Hypercube, and The Recruit with Al Pacino! And that's just the tip of the iceberg, also a Standup, and Writer.
