Showbiz Euphemisms

I took a career break to reassess my attitude to the business. I have just got out of rehab.

making the right career choices being chosen for the role (or turning down a part in Return of the Radioactive Tomatoes)

introduces some bold new elements
changes the story out of all recognition (Nancy Banks Smith)

novelty comedy (as in novelty record)

showmanship grandstanding, showing off, embarrassing pantomime, gurning, mugging

inclusive including people who are no good at the activity "more 'inclusive' – that is, less rigorous – education" Times August 7, 2006
