Interesting, this, King Kelly. It definitely pays to stand out from the crowd when networking and introducing yourself to someone who'll have 50 other slavering scripters eagerly bantering at them.

Best if it happens naturally, of course - perhaps with a shared, spontaneous joke. Rather than, for instance, squirting water in their eye with a comedy flower.

Just give them something to remember you by. Imagine yourself as a Friends episode - what's going to be your title in their mind?
