THE OTHER SIDE OF: David Tulloch on being grateful, cinema classics and the power of music

BON VIVANT: Tulloch shares a few of his favourite things.

NO rest for the talented. Each season of Jamaican theatre brings a production that David Tulloch either wrote, directed or stars in. This month, the relentless achiever opts for the latter, appearing in Pit to Pulpit as the insufferable senior pastor Rudolph Baton, an old man who loves SpongeBob Squarepants and a good argument. Herewith, a quick snapshot of what Tulloch enjoys. 

One thing that always cheers me up: Music. No matter what kind of mod I’m in, some kind of music can always make me feel better. 

A book every Jamaican should read is: The Pursuit of Happyness by Chris Gardner. 

These days I’m most grateful for: Life. It’s a rough time; so many people are dying. You have to be happy to be alive. 

If I could invite any three famous people to dinner, I’d have over: Jesus Christ, our current prime minister Andrew Holness and Michael Lee Chin. 

The last time I laughed out loud was: Tonight, while on stage. 

My all-time favourite movie is: I have several – the Ten Commandments, Angels & Demons and Ben Hur, to name a few. 

My idea of perfect happiness is: Having peace and peace of mind. 

The secret talent I wish I had: Being a ventriloquist (Laughs). I’ve always wanted to do that, especially on stage. Getting a puppet to talk.
