Forget the old saying that money talks. It's screaming at Harry
Enfield, the comedian who once lambasted ad industry figures over the

principles during the commercials boycott by Equity members.
'It's fun being involved in advertising,' he now declares, in what seems
to have been a conversion of biblical proportions. The healthier the
fee, the more fun it becomes, of course, and nobody begrudges Enfield a
proper reward for his talent. But let's hear no more from him about
industry fat cats.
