This is a clip of my performance as Henry Higgins last year in My Fair Lady.

Poor Eliza Doolittle, selling flowers on the street, giving money to her lying father who spends it on beer. She meets Henry Higgins, a very successful author and language specialist, who belittles her by making fun of her speech. Later she appears at his home and asks to pay for speech lessons. see my other clip "Eliza Wants Lessons"
That clip will explain how Henry Higgins makes a bet with a fellow speech specialist (Colonel Pickering)that he can take Eliza and within 6 months present her as a princess at an Embassy Ball. Through much hard work (for both of them really, because she has such a thick thick cockney accent, it nearly kills them!) They go to the Ball, and she pulls it off! They return home and Colonel Pickering sings a song applauding Henry Higgins success, completely leaving out that Eliza had something to do with the success. That brings us to this clip.
Eliza lashes out at Henry Higgins.
